On July 2, General Motors Co. reported that it delivered 746,659 vehicles in the U.S. in the second quarter of 2019, a decrease of 1.5% from the same period in 2018.
Among its divisions, Chevrolet sales were 5.3% less than the second quarter of 2018, while Buick sales were up 4.7%, Cadillac sales were up 1.3%, and GMC sales were up 9.8%.
For the first half of 2019, GM delivered 1,412,499 vehicles, representing a 4.2% decrease from the first half of 2018.
Updating its launch of the light-duty Chevrolet Silverado 1500 and GMC Sierra 1500, GM has installed new body shops, upgraded paint shops and reconfigured assembly at its plants to increase capacity by 20,000 units compared with the outgoing model.
The first new GM models launched were the Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra crew cabs in late summer 2018, with sales of each up more than 12% in the second quarter. Crew cab mix has risen from 60% of sales to almost 75%. Full production of all cab styles started in March.
GM is introducing a new 3.0-liter Duramax turbo diesel engine later in the third quarter.
GM has consolidated its Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD/3500HD and GMC Sierra 2500HD/3500HD production at its Flint Assembly plant, after installing new body and paint shops and hiring 1,000 new employees to increase capacity by 40,000 units compared to the outgoing model.
Heavy-duty trucks began shipping to dealers in the second half of June while production will be focused primarily on crew cab models.
End of June inventory was 809,387 units, up approximately 22,000 units Y-O-Y, reflecting new model launches.

Production of the Cadillac CTS has officially ended at the Lansing Grand River plant in Michigan.
The last one was a black 2019 model year CTS sedan.
The CTS will be indirectly replaced by the new CT5 sedan, as well as the current CT6 for higher-end CTS models.
The Lansing Grand River plant is now almost completely tooled for CT5 production, with regular production imminent.
Cadillac has slated CT5 sales to begin in fall 2019.
The smaller CT4, which indirectly replaces the ATS that ended production in January 2019, will be built at the same facility after it is tooled for production.

General Motors is trying to avoid recalling Takata air bag inflators in thousands of full-size pickups and SUVs for the fourth straight year, petitioning the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) on June 19 to exempt it from recalls required under a 2015 agreement between Takata and the government.
GM's petition says the inflators are unique to GM and are safe, with no explosions even though nearly 67,000 of the air bags are in the field.
GM filed its first petition in May 2016 and awaits NHTSA, which has taken more than three years to rule on multiple petitions.
NHTSA said it consolidated all four GM petitions into one and would take public comment until July 18.
Under NHTSA's agreement with Takata, GM should be recalling the 2010-14 Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra heavy duty pickups, 2010-13 light duty Silverados and Sierras, 2010-14 Chevrolet Tahoe and Suburban SUVs, 2010-14 Cadillac Escalade SUV, and 2010-14 GMC Yukon SUV.
In its petition, GM said Northrop Grumman tested 4,270 inflators by artificially exposing them to added humidity and temperature cycling, and there were no explosions or abnormal deployments.
The company simulated aging of the inflators for an estimated 35 years, the petition said.
GM also said its trucks have solar-absorbing glass that holds down cabin temperatures, keeping the inflators cooler and reducing hot-and-cold cycles that cause the ammonium nitrate to deteriorate.
If NHTSA requires it to do all the recalls, GM will have to repair more than 6 million trucks and SUVs at a cost of USD 1.2 billion.
