GM Survival
(2008-07-17)
(wgvu) - General Motors is known for making top-notch trucks and sport utility vehicles, but people are demanding small
cars that get great gas mileage.

The company's survival now hinges on the difficult task of convincing buyers that its upgraded cars are just as good as its
trucks, and are worth paying a little more for them.

That's the basic business plan for the overhauled GM, which is trying to regain lost ground in a U.S. market where $42,000
Chevrolet Tahoes that get only 14 miles per gallon in the city aren't in much demand.

The plan still includes selling a lot of pickups and SUVs -- but nowhere near the volume of past years when GM could count on
pocketing upward of 10,000 dollars on every big vehicle.
