Motown Surprise: GM Relishes in Strong SUV Sales

Date posted: 03-17-2006

DETROIT — General Motors is accelerating the launch of the redesigned 2007 Cadillac Escalade and GMC Yukon, following the public's enthusiastic reception of the new 2007 Chevrolet Tahoe.

GM also wants to move up the production startup of the long-wheelbase Chevrolet Suburban, GMC Yukon XL and Cadillac Escalade ESV, according to Reuters, and has asked suppliers to ship components ahead of schedule.

GM has said the introduction of its redesigned full-size SUVs is the company's most significant product launch in 2006. Dealer deliveries of the '07 Tahoe began in January, and sales in the first two months of the year climbed almost 50 percent to more than 28,500 units.

Production of the new Suburban has been pulled ahead by several weeks. It begins next week in GM's Silao plant in Mexico.

What this means to you: GM needed this to happen in a major, major way.

Well I'm glad to see GM has a shot at turning around. It just goes to show what happens when you put enough effort into redesigning a product. Now do this with the rest of the lineup.

My boss tooled up in his new Escalade this week. The dealer told him to take it easy on it for the first 200 miles so he hasn't put it through it's paces yet. Sweet looking wheels though. :)

I just wish that this much effort was put into passenger cars than GM would be in this mess!
