At this point, it should be pretty obvious that the U.S. auto market can’t get enough crossovers and SUVs. As such, General Motors is looking to keep its utility lineup looking as fresh as possible, with 20 of the 22 GM SUV and CUV models receiving either a complete overhaul (“all-new” status) or refresh between the 2019 and 2021 model years. That’s an impressive 91 percent of The General’s SUV and CUV stable.
Several of the GM SUV and CUV models are brand-new additions. For example, the Chevrolet Trailblazer, Buick Encore GX, Cadillac XT4, Cadillac XT6, Chevrolet Bolt EUV, and Buick Enspire are all totally new models.
This outpouring of fresh ‘utes makes perfect sense looking at current market demands. As we covered yesterday, the automaker’s heavy focus on utility models is backed by data that shows that customers are still ravenous for more GM SUV and CUV models, with the recent Foresight Research Auto Show Immersion Report of Vehicle Purchasers, as provided by the New York International Auto Show (NYIAS), indicating that 58 percent of show-goers are considering either a small or midsize SUV.
For reference, we’ve listed the GM SUV and CUV lineup below with their respective updates:
Note: all years listed are model years.
