Some good things must come to an end – and for General Motors, that means saying “goodbye” to six of its sedan models. The American carmaker has decided to focus its attention on its award-winning SUV and truck lineups and is cutting these sedan models to do so.
The GM sedans that will be discontinuing production include the Chevrolet Volt, which was the carmaker’s first-ever plug-in EV hybrid. GM will also stop making the Cadillac XTS, which is a large luxury sedan; the Chevrolet Cruze, which is a compact car; the Chevrolet Impala, which is a large sedan; and the Buick LaCrosse large luxury sedan.
This change has come around because of the drastic increase in interest in the SUV and truck segments. More and more American consumers are becoming interested in the versatility and high-ride height that these larger vehicles have to offer. GM is also not the first carmaker to discontinue some of its sedans – both Ford and Fiat Chrysler have done the same recently.
If you’re worried that your car maintenance will be more difficult because you own a discontinued model, never fear – you will still be able to get your vehicle serviced with ease. Just bring the vehicle in need of repairs to Diamond Auto Group.
