GM's best-selling vehicle, the 2013 Silverado all new in December
Without the Chevy Silverado General Motors would not be profitable. During the 2008 economy implosion, and even prior to that, it became clear to auto-stock watchers that small American economy cars don’t earn any money for their builders at GM, Ford, and other legacy American car companies. The reason for this can be debated, but the fact is that without strong sales of the big, body-on-frame vehicles that American customers from coast to coast (but especially in the middle of the country) prefer, GM is a dead duck. There is no Volt, no Corvette (although the Corvette is likely very profitable), no Cruz, and no Malibu. On December 13th, 2012 General Motors will unveil to the public its most important product’s newest generation.
