CEO: Debut of pickups for GM going smoothly


WARREN, Mich. — Revamped full-size pickup trucks from General Motors are arriving at Chevrolet and GMC dealers nationwide, and the company’s top executive said the launch has gone well.

Chief Executive Officer Dan Akerson said the smooth debuts of the Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra trucks are examples of the way GM plans to maintain high quality while replacing many older models this year. “We’ve produced tens of thousands of these new trucks. Initial cut, it’s probably our best launch ever,”he said said, noting GM has had “mixed success” with previous product launches.
