I read over the weekend that GM was about to announce that it was closing its Pontiac division. Dumping Pontiac will leave GM with Chevy, Cadillac, Buick, GMC, Hummer, Saturn, Saab, and some other foreign companies. There’s talk that Hummer and Saturn are next to get the ax.
I’m not sad that Pontiac is gone. I’m sad that so many people will lose their jobs but I can’t say that I will miss the Pontiac brand. To me, Pontiacs always felt cheap and rattly. I have never owned a Pontiac.
So, what do you think GM will look like when all is said and done? I’m thinking it will be Chevy, Cadillac, Buick, and GMC. I say Buick only because it is a big seller in China. Who knows, they may quit selling Buicks in the states and just sell them in China.
Either way, GM is going to be a much smaller company when this is all said and done.
