General Motors future models - Holden

17 September 2019

Once the number one make in Australia, Holden now mostly dwells in position number nine. In August, sales dropped by 18 per cent, almost double the market average. Had Subaru sold just 17 more cars, Holden would have been pushed into tenth place. A new Trax is set to land locally in 2020 but other than this small SUV, the future product cupboard is looking fairly bare, at least in the short term.

Strike hits General Motors in US

16 September 2019

General Motors future models - Cadillac

16 September 2019

Stung by criticism that Cadillac wasn't offering the right luxury vehicles for shifting customer preferences in China and North America, GM has thrown much money at the division and infused it with fresh thinking. Suddenly, no-one can say there are too many big cars but too few SUVs. The CT4 and CT5 sedans will soon be rolling into showrooms, an elegant next generation Escalade is now just months away from being revealed, while the 2020s will bring an electric SUV and many other novelties.

General Motors future models - Buick

11 September 2019

A relatively small brand in North America, Buick is a big deal in China, where 432,264 vehicles were sold in the first half of the year (compared to 107,240 in the USA). Which is why talk of GM phasing out Buick cars won’t happen, at least not in its number one market.

General Motors future models - GMC

9 September 2019

For a long time, not even General Motors itself seemed to know just what GMC was meant to be other than an alternative to Chevrolet when it came to light trucks in North America and the Middle East. The brand has lately become more premium, more rugged and in many ways, GM's all-American answer to Jeep, albeit without the smaller vehicles.

General Motors future models - Chevrolet SUVs & pick-ups

2 September 2019

Chevrolet remains the strong number three make in the USA, some 64,000 units behind Toyota in the first half of 2019 (GM has stopped reporting monthly sales). China, the brand's other major market, is a different story, with Chevy ending H1 in eighteenth place. Which explains why GM's number one global division is adding so many SUVs in North America and China, while also making plans to fight back against FCA's Ram 1500, which has taken second place from the Silverado pick-up in the US market.

General Motors future models - Chevrolet cars

General Motors future models - SGMW Wuling

27 August 2019

When it comes to light commercials, Wuling is far and away the Chinese market leader. The brand, which is controlled by the SAIC, General Motors and Wuling Motors joint venture, has until recently also been wildly successful with a range of affordable MPVs. SGMW has expanded outside China and added SUVs yet Wuling is still in trouble. The question is, will things turn around once several overdue fresh models begin to appear in 2020?
