Kurt McNeil, vice president, U.S. sales operations said

“The second half of 2013 is off to a very solid start for GM and our model-year change over and new product launches are going smoothly. We have a lot of momentum and we feel good about the direction of the U.S. economy as we prepare to launch even more new products, including all-new heavy duty pickups and large SUVs for Chevrolet and GMC, a completely redesigned Cadillac CTS and the Chevrolet Corvette Stingray.”

McNeil said

“If our first Cruze customer were to walk into a Chevrolet dealership today, he wouldn’t recognize the place. The same holds true for Buick-GMC and Cadillac. The cars and trucks, the sales and service experience – everything is being elevated so we can offer customers the best ownership experience in the business.”
