    Fortunately for both General Motors and for American citizens, the U.S. domestic oil and gas industry (especially the segment involved with shale plays) has the potential not only to survive in the years to come, but thrive.

    Mark P. Mills wrote an excellent article about this:

    Oil in the Time of Corona: With new technologies and techniques, America’s shale industry will survive this latest crisis—and prove an ever-bigger threat to Saudi Arabian and Russian oil producers.

    Quote Originally Posted by Mark P. Mills

After the dust settled, America’s shale-oil output came roaring back and actually grew more rapidly than it had previously. Why? After the carnage, the shale industry became far more productive: U.S. oil output per employee has doubled since 2015. That’s an amazing gain in any business. It’s also a direct measure of experience and technology at work.

    As for the future, two relevant questions pertain: Just how much oil is still hidden in America’s shale fields? And is there any “juice” left in technology to unlock it at lower cost with the same, or less, labor? The answers: a lot, and yes. After all, we know exactly where the oil is located. No one “discovered” shale oil; instead, entrepreneurs invented a way to access it. And despite the astounding growth in production, today’s techniques can extract only 10 percent to 15 percent of the oil available in the shale rock. Technology remains the key to tapping more of that enormous resource. Since that technology is increasingly digital, not mechanical, the marginal costs of each new barrel will keep coming down."

    Amazing how a new crisis draws media attention away from the previous one
    So sad that good news to the people is way down the list on reporting.

    Of course regular buyers are nowhere near as harsh on what the critics class as mistakes, yes they coulda done better but it will probably continue to sell well and do the job for GM.

    In 2019, General Motors had the highest owner loyalty of any OEM in the U.S. market according to IHS Markit. 68.9% of existing GM vehicle owners chose another GM product when it came time to acquire a new car or truck. 2019 was the fifth consecutive year in which GM ranked highest.

    No doubt that GM's full-size pickup trucks contributed heavily to GM's pole position at the manufacturer level, though at the model level, the full-size pickup truck with the highest owner loyalty was Ram 1500/2500/3500.

    You know, in this form, its an impressive truck, outside



    They do need an interior MCE to include new electronic architecture ASAP, and it needs a supercharged at least 5.3 to deal with high altitude climates against the Eco boost.. The 6.2 can hold its own pretty well, not the 5.3, which means a low Psi system might help it

    Distancing is required if you're protesting in Lansing or parked in a church parking lot.
    Not so much if you're burning NY or Baltimore or LA to the ground. You have to get your priorities straight.

    They need to build more ASAP, they are probably limited in sales by how fast they can build them.

    Personally, I would make the fog lights circles and the headlights would be 3 small squares
    like this



    with the rest of the design staying as is.

    GM did well loading dealerships with the right product and trim mix pre-covid shutdown,
    just stick to the plan and keep building to that correct inventory profile and cutomer orders.
    The last thing GM needs to do is overthink this, older inventory will be down so push that
    with some incentives while trading higher with less incentives on newer production until
    production catches up to sales
