GM and Chrysler have always been known for their profitable dealership. These companies have curtailed their dealer network considerably after their bail out by the US tax payers. These major players in the auto segment took time while recovering from the stage of bankruptcy. The cutting down of the dealer network was the major initiative in restructuring their bankruptcy. The lower number of dealership witnessed sustainable margins and about 90% of the dealerships were profitable. The dealership number for GM went down from 6,246 in 2008 to 4,335 in 2013, while for Chrysler the number went down from 3,200 in 2009 to 2,600 in 2013.
The analysis made by GM and Chrysler revealed that they had too many dealers and that was one of the reasons for their down trend. This was corrected by bringing the number of dealers down, introducing the new models and that resulted into the record breaking sales figures per dealership. The dealers started receiving better profits and most of them invested these profits in upgrading the facilities. The money was invested in improvement and expansion of the stores and other such customer friendly activities. The result is the happy customer base for GM and Chrysler.
The dealership termination drive also made the dealers work on their flaws to meet the requirement of continuing with the dealership. They started working more towards the brand image and that worked for these auto giants which were on the verge of closure at one point of time. The customers who were against buying any of these auto products are now again finding their dream cars from these automobile companies. Let us hope that the trend of better customer servicing and the super performance models continue so as to let the car lovers enjoy another major innovations from GM and Chrysler.

Changes are going to take place soon in the President’s limo. Recent news has confirmed that the Secret Service has started to accept new proposals for a new limousine. From that time the car enthusiasts have been wondering about how this new armored car would look like. The car has been given the nickname “The Beast”. The design of the car has been done based on Cadillac DTS. This car is no longer sold these days. There will be no surprise if the job goes to General Motors. The reason behind this is that the US government still owns a good portion of the company. The shape of the new Limo will be somewhat similar to the newly launched XTS. But in the history of Presidential cars the Cadillac has been so popular.
A brief look at the evolution of Presidential cars
Most of the presidential limousines have been have been provided by Lincoln. In the race Cadillac has been left far behind.
The first car that was designed for carrying the Commander-In-Chief was a Lincoln K-Series car. It was popularly known by the name “Sunshine Special”. This car was used by Franklin D. Roosevelt.
The last Lincoln car was used by George Bush and was ordered in 1989.
If the current president of the United States wants to use a Lincoln now then the car that will be ordered will be a amalgam of MKT crossover and MKS sedan.
Obama himself owns a Chrysler 300 himself before he took charge of the President’s office. Thus it can be well understood that he has some personal connections with the company.
When talking about the car of the President it is only possible to know it from outside. The Secret Service does not reveal what is there inside the car. Thus the next limo will be something that any of the major domestic car manufacturers can offer.
