However, its clear they certainly dont care about the US sales. They have been holding steady at 1500 units production a month for the last few months. You cant have a winner everytime when you have 8 midsize sedans in your portfolio.
I think they really screwed up by not offering a V6 in the Regal.
pretty good month overall.
-Volt sales are starting to look pretty darn good. Would be nice to see them hit 35,000-40,000 units in 2013
-Verano lookin good as well. Its a nice looking car in person. simple, clean and elegant. I think GM did a good job with that design direction.
-Equinox and Terrain continue to go strong, very nice too see.
-Sonic, Cruze and Spark end the year strong. GM really has to like where Chevy's small car offerings are at right now. Especially the Sonic.
-I wish the Malibu sales would start to pick up, I really didnt like the car at first but now since I have had the chance to see more on the road I am really starting to warm up to its looks. For 2013 it would be nice to atleast see it selling in the 14-15 K a month territory...That shouldn't be too much to ask for.
"What about that "best all-around subcompact car" business? Yeah, we're gonna say it: The Chevy Sonic – manual or auto – is just that. You heard it, Fiesta fanatics"
Ford sold 645,316 F-150's in 2012, compared to the GM twins' sales of approx 576,000.
Focus outsold the Cruze in 2012; 245,922 / 237,758
The FORD brand sold 2,168,015 vehicles in 2012, the only brand in the US to sell over 2million vehicles.

One thing about the retail sales, and don't get me wrong that is great news, December is a big month for employee (retail) purchases almost all white-collar had 2 weeks off, and 1/2 of GM's blue-collar had 3 or 4 weeks off, due to plants being idled, kind of a double whammy-fix for the excess inventory! Plus, they were pushing some amazing deals.
