An overwhelming majority of the GM vehicle lineup will be either refreshed or completely redesigned for the 2019 and 2020 model years in the United States market, according to a forecast analysis performed by GM Authority.
That figure consists of the introduction of at least 31 new models. Of these future GM models, 19 will be all-new vehicles that have been completely redesigned and re-engineered and 12 will be refreshed or updated.
2019 Model Year
We already know which GM vehicles will be all-new or updated for the 2019 model year, since the automaker has already announced these models.
2020 Model Year
Where things get more interesting is for the 2020 model year, which is expected to bring major releases of all-new models.
So, that’s a total of 31 all-new or refreshed models out of 45 potential ones, representing 67 percent of the GM vehicle lineup in the Untied States. Looks like The General has a sound product product offensive on its hands.
