I find it a little odd they have to mention "crew cab" sales being up while the rest of the Silverado and Sierra lines are down.

It is what's called "spin". I'm surprised they didn't mention that Crew Cab sales have a higher ATP too..

Yeah... I don't like when companies do things like that.. I know it's probably pretty dang common across the board but I don't like it. It's petty.

Impala outselling the Camaro.  And the Impala is getting killed.  Doesn’t bode well for the Camaro.  Also Cadillac sedan sales other than the fleet heavy XTS are in free fall, which doesn’t look good for the prospects of rear drive cars at GM.

      General Motors will be bringing back the Hummer name to sell a new electric truck as part of the GMC lineup.
      The Wall Street Journal first broke the news yesterday with GM moving forward on plans to bring Hummer back that was first reported back in June. The report also said that the company would tout the return with a Super Bowl ad featuring NBA star LeBron James. GM declined to comment.
      The decision is likely due to the planned $3 billion investment for the Detroit-Hamtramck plant that we reported back in October. The investment is to gear up the plant to build an electric pickup for GMC and an electric Cadillac SUV by 2023. But in 2021, the plant will produce a "low volume BT1 pickup" under a different brand. At the time we speculated that it may be Hummer. This seems to lineup with the reporting done by the Wall Street Journal which says the truck will be similar in design to the Jeep Renegade.
      Bloomberg adds that there are plans for a large SUV for Hummer if the truck proves successful according to sources. The sources also say that the company is considering selling the new Hummer truck in existing dealers under the name of “Hummer by GMC.”
