What vehicles does GM make money on?

I've read before that small vehicles, such as the Aveo and Cobalt, don't directly bring in revenue by themselves, but exist so a customer will hopefully "step up" into something that will bring GM money later on, or to satisfy dealers when they don't have a small car to sell :D. But then again Cobalt sales and transaction prices are way up.

I DO know that traditionally, pickups and SUVs were a good money maker. Even with sales are far down as they are is money still being made? How about like H2's?

How about like the SAABs? Uplanders? ASTRA's? G8's?

Is my assumption correct too, that a loaded vehicle will give more of a profit because it doesn't cost GM THAT much more to make a loaded model than a base model?

Like an LS Suburban versus a Platinum Escalade?
