Feb. 28, 2011 - PRLog -- DETROIT, M.I. – Michigan GMC dealers may be feeling a genuine positive shift from when General Motors went through a bankruptcy in 2009 to where the automaker is now. With government and other agency help, GM was able to pull through. Now, two years later, General Motors has announced a $4.7 billion profit for 2010. This number was more than GM had earned in more than 10 years.
With such high profits, 45,000 union workers at General Motors may receive profit-sharing checks $4,300 on average; this would be the highest amount ever given to union workers. This also means that 26,000 salaried workers in the U.S. may receive bonuses about 4 to 16 percent of their pay.
“Last year was one of foundation-building,” said Daniel F. Akerson General Motor’s Chief Executive, said in a press statement. “Particularly pleasing was that we demonstrated G.M.’s ability to achieve sustainable profitability near the bottom of the U.S. industry cycle, with four consecutive profitable quarters.”
There were about $90 billion in losses since 2009, but that started to change for GM dramatically in November as Michigan GMC dealers may have watched as GM began its Initial Public Offering (IPO). Within in a couple of days it became one of the largest IPOs in U.S. history.

The IPO was not the only additional change General Motors completed to get its company back on track. Other ways GM improved its company’s standing was through reducing factory input, cutting labor costs and developing new cars and trucks to attract customers.
New cars that have been added to the General Motors lineup include the Chevrolet Cruze, which replaced the Chevrolet Cobalt. One of the more popular and awarded vehicles that GM added to its list of available models is the Chevrolet Volt. Not only has the Chevrolet Volt won North American Car of the Year, but it was also named 2011 Motor Trend Car of the Year.

The year has also started off well for GM as Michigan GMC dealers contributed to the 22.7 percent increase in sales from this January to the same time last year. General Motors reported selling 178,896 vehicles. By brand, Cadillac rose 49 percent for the month; Buick went up 32 percent; GMC jumped 30 percent and Chevrolet just up 19 percent.
