Hold Off Buying GM SUVs for Now

GM SUVThe popularity of many SUVs throughout GM's lineup is necessitating a move to increase production at several facilities. Demand for these vehicles is outstripping supply which means you're not likely to get a good deal right now.

The vehicles that require more production are the Buick Enclave and LaCrosse, the Cadillac SRX, Chevrolet Traverse and Equinox and their more up-market brethren the GMC Acadia and Terrain. These represent the core of GM's midsize and full-size SUV models.

Demand is there for these seven vehicles in spite of a relatively weak market overall for larger vehicles, and the fact that General Motors is considering re-opening plants should be a red flag for buyers considering these cars.

Unless there are leftover 2009 models of one's preferred SUV still on the lot, you may want to consider looking at competing SUVs that have a better inventory of supply. Previous articles have noted that Ford is also experiencing supply issues with their Expedition and Excursion models.
