3 new models, but 5 models getting canned, that's not growth. I don't think GM has 14 thousand replacement jobs for all the lives they'll ruin. GM as one of the largest American companies, should have some obligation to the workers that once made it great.
Do people want a healthy GM that continues to be one of the biggest employers in the US, or a sickly GM that goes bankrupt again and lays all of them off?
Mary’s 2 golden rules: If a vehicle does not make 17k profit, discontinue said vehicle. Also, decontent and put cheapest interior as possible in said vehicle.
Maybe gm will put their soon to be out of a job employees to work in the electric car plants?
Obviously the shift in the sedan market caught everyone or almost everyone by surprise...the collaspe was faster than what was expected.
The japanese are subsidizing lease deals like crazy...and the american manufacturers can not compete with little profit involved.
Besides wall street craps on car companies ...so what does a board of directors move to do? Become mobility companies and the icing on the cale is stop making most sedans...
Then you might not be seem as a car company...
Dodnt really work for fca or ford as far as stock prices for ford...
Gm got a little bump until trump lambasted gm ...
Then the market took gm down...
Becoming mobility companies is nonsense to try and get better valuation from wall street...
Wall street hates most car companies.
Which situation creates more US jobs, a plant in OH or a plant in Mexico?

Seems like this is a nice vehicle. Are you saying that the Ford Edge is a better proposition? Why?
This Blazer, sleek as a Camaro , because enthusiasts asked Chevy to make a SPORTY SUV and they did. This has a strong V6 engine with over 305HP, maxing out at 4200lbs. The platform is known to be a great handler. Even against the GC's 360hp V8, which comes in at 800lbs more, the Blazer should be able to run well against it as well as the Edge ST. The Edge is about as sporty looking as a Subaru Forester. Boring. Are there going to be substantial changes to Ford's design language overall? Far as I can see the only thing that even remote looks non-soccer mom over there is the Mustang
It has to occur to some one, some where that GM has been a welfare company for far too long. They employee way to many Americans who don't appreciate their employment status. All of them do not even support the company with a simply thing such as having an all GM new car driveway (not including hobbie classic cars from other manufacturers.) Imagine a situation where employees at Lordstown or Detroit-Ham actually actively recommended a Cruze, Volt, CT6, Lacrosse, Impala to their family and friends. How about the community and city of Detroit do the same? Why? Because supporting your plant meant supporting jobs, keeping jobs. Hypothetically John, who, along with his dad owns "Gios," the restaurant that serves DH employees daily, rolls up to the restaurant his new Avalon instead of an even Consumer Reports top pick, Impala. One sale lost, now two, now three. Detroit-Ham closes. Six months later, "Gio's" closes. Now John is making his car payments to Toyota Finance using unemployment money he gets fed. He's sour on GM for closing the plant. What if he had of just bought an Impala and spread the word that it is a great car? German employees know this. They support the hell out of their local plants even when their car is a piece of junk VW.
