Constructive criticism is more than welcome! Glad you like what I'm doing. I see what you mean be the gaps, that is a good piont. As for the overlap, there's always going to be some overlap with GM being as big as it is. What needs to be done is to have them differentiated in price, features, design, and target market. While Buick would be going more for doctors and lawyers, Saturn would be going more for the affluent, young business people. Cadillac going for the overall wealthy market.2b2 said:AR, still not sure about your pricing - the spread seems a bit too broad & there are a couple 'holes' (betwn CorsaAstra & Aura[_]Signum). Don't you think the fully loaded version of one should overlap a touch on the base price of the next-size-up?
Also can Saturn have that 'Signum' (is it larger than Aura too?) without crowding Buick?
In case this came across as too much criticism, just want to say again how much I appreciate your Ideal Lineup threads & the dedication to keep them going.
Here's my latest thinking in chart form
yeah - considering One mid-range domestic division,
& this doesn't show the cuv-suv-whatevers or GMC.
I used the term 'Pkg' to address offering a version of another "sub-brand's" car. At this point I'm thinking they'd be badged with just the model/Pkg name - not sure if there'd be a name for the div/super-brand, tho with GMC, maybe GM-Connection conveys the idea... hmmm, does anyone use 'connection' yet?
I'll prolley post in your NA Market thread later (really like that you're doing a BigPicture thread).
