GM exec confirms Cadillac XTS, GMC Granite, Chevrolet Aveo RS for Detroit via Twitter

The North American International Auto Show is typically the big show for Detroit-based automakers and 2010 appears to be no different for General Motors. Chris Preuss, GM's vice president of communications, has hit Twitter confirming that each of the General's four brands will have at least one vehicle to display at the Detroit Auto Show next month. As expected, Cadillac will unveil the 2011 CTS-V coupe along with a concept version of its XTS sedan, a model slated to replace the aging DTS in the next year or two. GMC will unleash the Granite, which, according to earlier reports, will be based on the Delta platform and the forthcoming Chevrolet Orlando.

Chevrolet figures to have a somewhat quieter show, with its big reveal being the Aveo RS, which we hear is all-new and very little like the narrow and unattractive B-Segment hatch GM is selling now. Buick will be chasing the ghosts of Grand Nationals and T-Types past with a performance variant of the 2011 Regal that may share a lot of parts with the 325-horsepower Opel Insignia OPC. We can hardly wait for January 11.

Well this will answer if my hunch that the half finished clay car behind the 2012 Malibu nose in the Whitacer ad. Is this the XTS?

Some things about it say Cadillac and some things just don't. I just want to know what it is.

I also await the reaction to the new Malibu. This will be one very important car to GM.

These all sound like great products actually. No warmed over refresh passed off as a new model. I feel like the CTSv coupe will have something new and amazing.

GM needs to make a big statment in Detroit this year and they need to do it with product that is 90% production or more. No pie in the sky dream cars at this point.

Real cars for real people should be their theme.

It also helps that a lot of new product was rushed before the Chapter 11 so when they were down over the few weeks last summer they would have product ready to move once the dust settled. GM has made a lot of good moves behind the scenes since last spring and it will pay off for them in the next 2 years.

Agreed.
