GM sales up 3.4% in February



GM sales up 3.4% in February

General Motors saw a 3.4% sales increase last month compared to February 2006, the company said today.

GM sold 311,763 vehicles in February.

The company said its retail sales increased 11% while its fleet sales were down 18% as part of a planned 25%-reduction in daily rental sales.

The company credits the sales gain to the new GMC Sierra and Chevrolet Silverado full-size pickups.

The Silverado had its best February in five years. Full-size pickup sales were up 29% and total truck sales were up 7% in February compared to the same month last year. GMC Acadia and Saturn Outlook drove a 97% retail increase in the mid-crossover segment.

"Our pickup, SUV and crossover business was terrific across the board. Our customers are telling us that we have the winning formula — the best products, industry-leading fuel economy and the best value," Mark LaNeve, vice president of GM North American sales, service and marketing, said in a statement.

Wow.... that is such great news!

If they can continue to post a profit even when accounting for the decrease in fleat sales, then that is awesome!

As for those new Silverados -- I live those things. If I wasn't holding out for the Camaro, I would be at the dealer getting one myself.

Mine is jacked up a little, but not anything too extreme. I love my truck, I just can't stand the gas milage and it is not very practical 11.5 months out of the year....

Nice. Take that, add some chrome, toolbox with whipcord, 40s, loud exhaust, and sit it bulldog. Clone it about 50 times, and throw em all in superwalmart parkinglot, and you have a typical Friday night in my town lol.
