General Motors has decided that displaying Mexican-built crossovers just 3.4 miles from where it is closing a Michigan plant is not a great idea. The promotional display at Comerica Park was set to highlight GM's new vehicles for opening day. The UAW, among others, noted the Blazer is not built in the U.S. GM is closing plants in the U.S. and Canada, and shifting work to lower-cost of labor areas such as China and Mexico in order to keep costs down.
GM has opted to remove the Blazer and replace it with one of the many crossovers the company does assemble in the U.S. In a statement, GM said in part, "American workers contribute significantly to the success of the Chevy Blazer. The Blazer will pump more than a half-billion dollars into the U.S. manufacturing economy each year, helping support thousands of good-paying U.S. Jobs." Comerica Park is about 3 miles from the GM Detroit-Hamtramck Assembly plant, which GM is leaving "unallocated."

General Motors today released its full Q4 earnings report. GM's CEO, Mary Barra, commented on the earnings, saying, "GM delivered another strong year of earnings in a highly volatile environment in 2018. We will continue to
make bold decisions to lead the transformation of this industry and drive significant shareholder value.” The report came just two days after GM began its 4,000 person layoff of white-collar workers and weeks after announcing four plants would have no vehicle allocations after April 1st, 2019.
If you are an investor, you can jump to the GM investor summary here. General Motors credited strong pricing, surging crossover sales, growth of GM Financial earnings, disciplined cost control and the successful launch of the new Sierra and Silverado pickups for the positive results.
