It's sad about all the brands and jobs being cut. But why did they keep GMC instead of Pontiac? GMC and Chevy trucks SUVs are all the same models, just different brands on them.

We may never know why GM did what it did, all i know is that it's definitely hurting Michigan's economy, we have close to, if not the highest unemployment rate in the country at around 15%

They should have stopped Saturn or Hummer instead of selling both but GMC SUVs are meant to be luxury options... like, there is no Yukon Denali version of the Tahoe/Suburban (but the Z71 comes close). It does seem like Chevy and GMC could have consolidated but that wouldn't have solved anything because I think the vehicles (Tahoe and Yukon; Silverado and Sierra) are made in the same factories but with different nameplates and logos.

It's called badge engineering

Think of the Cevrolet Blazer / GMC Jimmy / Oldsmobile Bravada

they were all the same car, same shell, just different badges and options...

I love Pontiac, I have my 05 grand am and its great. My dream car is the Chevy Camaro and the Pontiac G8 GXP. I am glad that they are considering take the G8 to Chevy
