Dealers of GMC vehicles finally received the news they been waiting to hear for quite a while during a private meeting that GM held for both Buick and GMC dealers. The good word is the announcement that the company will be increasing the production and availability of several popular models for the 2011 model year onward.
According to Automotive News, the reason GM will be increasing production is because of its projected outlook for 2011. There has been substantial year-over-year growth of 31% for the GMC brand seen so far from 2010 and demand for several models such as the Terrain, Acadia and Sierra remain high. Therefore, planned output for the Sierra and Acadia will increase roughly 15%, while the Terrain will see a “substantial”-yet undisclosed- increase.
“There was a lot energy, enthusiasm and optimism. There wasn’t a lot of new information shared. It was an upbeat update,” said GM spokeswoman Dayna Hart, although she would not specify what the entire meeting was about. Could more things be in store for both GMC and Buick dealers? (We think so.)
