All these threads about the possible Opel sale to PSA have me thinking. It's pretty obvious that GM wants to get away from selling cars and sell more CUVs and SUVs in North America, which they deem easier and more profitable to sell.
Why can't GM or more specifically Chevrolet make a killing at selling passenger cars? Me personally, I'm not very happy with what Chevy offers as far exterior design, packaging, and lack of performance options. Sooooooooooooooo much room for improvement, that is so obvious.
Let's take the Malibu for instance. The Malibu - as a product - should be a cash cow for Chevy. I know a lot of you find the car attractive to look at, but if you see one without the 19" wheels, it's just plain butt ugly. And those 19 inchers puts you into a $31,000 car before options. Come on now.Why can't the base $21,000 Malibu look good?
It's pretty easy to load up a Malibu Premier and be in the $35,000 range. Does that make sense? Not to me. So many other choices for that kind of money. Hell, I'd rather spend a few extra bucks and get a base Alfa Romeo Giulia for $37,995.
We can talk about the Malibu or any other Chevy passenger car here. But it's almost as if Chevy is actually TRYING to sabotage it's own passenger car business.
Let me hear how you think Chevy should fix it's passenger car problems.
