Check out this Google Ad that popped up on the GM Authority website nigh a few minutes ago.
In case you can’t see the screen shot of the actual ad, the promotion reads:
Looking For the Torrent?
Come See What the Chevy Equinox Has to Offer. Learn More Here.
This is solid proof that GM has every intention of keeping owners of its discontinued brands in the General Motors family. This time around, The General is funneling Pontiac Torrent buyers (current and potential) to the (much-better) Chevrolet Equinox.
The strategy seems to be working: despite sending three of its eight brands to the automotive graveyard (Pontiac, Saturn, Hummer) and selling another (Saab), The General still has the highest U.S. market share.
