As with any market, the automotive world is always changing and evolving. Lately the average buyer has been shifting their interest towards vehicles designed for greater capability and versatility, like SUVs and trucks. In reaction to this change, manufacturers are adjusting their lineups to meet the shopper’s wants. This means decreasing the number of vehicles that don’t fit into these popular categories, like sedans.
GM is the latest manufacturer to cut back on their sedan offerings. At this time, we are saying goodbye to six GM sedans, three of them in the Chevrolet lineup. Moving forward, the Chevrolet lineup will no longer include the Chevrolet Impala full-size car, the Chevrolet Cruze compact car, and the Chevrolet Volt plug-in hybrid. Among what remains is the Chevrolet Malibu, a mid-size sedan that boasts a refreshed design for the 2019 model year.
The decision to minimize their sedan lineup allows Chevrolet to focus their attention on delivering the performances, amenities, safety, and technology that drivers will want in their SUVs and trucks. But it also allows Chevrolet to direct more attention towards the Chevy Malibu, which will aim to be the perfect catch-all option for drivers who still favor the sedan segment over SUVs.
