General Motors puts an end to the production of six cars by the end of 2019

North American customers want SUVs, crossovers, sedans and trucks. The sedans have fallen out of favor.

While GM (GM) is adapting to changing customer behavior, it is also preparing for the future. The company has announced massive layoffs and will close five plants in North America while it switches to future autonomous electric cars.

Cadillac CT6

January-September sales: 7,270, down 10.6%

The group's only surprise, the CT6 is an unusual choice for GM because it serves as a technological halo for Cadillac. It's still the only car to own GM's Super Cruise semi-autonomous driving technology. But it's also the least popular Cadillac.

Cadillac XTS

January-September sales: 12,664%, up 15.9%

Chevrolet Cruze

January – September sales: 109,662, down 26.5%

Chevrolet Impala

Sales January – September: 43,952%, down 13.4%

The recently redesigned Chevy Impala was the first Consumer Reports choice for big cars in 2018. But it's a big car on a market that seems to have forgotten that big cars exist. The Impala is one of the least sold Chevrolet vehicles.
