Default GM to Launch Key Fuel Efficient Cars and Trucks in the Next 18 Months

Looks like we can expect the Terrain and other GM vehicles to improve on it's MPG numbers.

Maybe 2013-2014 will make us consider an upgrade from our current Terrains.

USA’s biggest car manufacturer, General Motors, is scheduling a series of new vehicle launches for its four brands in the next 18 months. And the dominant theme here, both in passenger cars and trucks, will be improved economy figures as GM prepares its vehicle lineup to meet the more stringent fuel-efficiency standards.
For example, the Detroit automaker plans to introduce 8-speed auto transmissions and downsized turbocharged engines in its new pickups, and also intends to fit more models with the eAssist light-hybrid technology.

Both Chevrolet and Cadillac will launch two key models next year: the former the new Malibu mid-size sedan (in early 2012) and the Spark minicar (at a later date), and the latter the new ATS compact sedan and the XTS full size sedan in the second half of the year.

Last, but not least, GM also plans to launch its next generation of full-size pickup trucks and SUVs in 2013 and 2014.

This will be a really interesting 18 months, GM has done quite a lot since the bailout to get back on their feet and so far they have done very well for themselves. Being a guy that was all about Japanese and European cars, GM vehicles are now starting to improve.

Lets see what GM can do in these 18 months, hopefully they optimize the GMC Terrain for better fuel economy.
