GM will kill some Chevy, Pontiac, and Cadillac cars

Posted Monday, May 11, 2009, 12:10 pm in Employee News

General Motors Corp. said Friday it will stop building the Pontiac G6 GXP sedan and coupe at the end of this model year, as well as the Chevrolet Impala SS and Cobalt SS sedan, according to the Automotive News.

GM also said Friday that Cadillac will discontinue the STS-V luxury sedan at the end of the 2009 model year, the paper said. Pontiac spokesman Jim Hopson said the decision to kill the G6 GXP is not related to the phase-out of Pontiac, which GM plans to accomplish by the end of 2010. It stemmed from an earlier decision to pare Pontiac down to a niche brand, he told the Automotive News.

“There is a movement here to reduce the build complexity—that’s the number of trim levels we sell, not the nameplates—so that was the decision behind taking out the GXP,” Hopson told the paper. “We’ll have more information in the weeks to come of exactly when each Pontiac vehicle will go out of production.” (Automotive News)
