GM suspends orders on some SUVs and pickups due to strike

GM has told dealers to stop taking orders for some of its 2008 full-sized trucks and SUVs due to the strike of the American Axle & Manufacturing Holdings strike. Among the vehicles are the GMC Yukon, Denali, Sierra and the Chevrolet Tahoe.

“Essentially, we’re not accepting any more orders,” Randy Fox, GMC spokesman, told Automotive News.

In a memo to dealers, GM said: “The allocation volume for the Dealer Order Submission Process cycles beginning May 8, 2008, and May 15, 2008, have been canceled.” Essentially, this means orders won’t be filled.

GM said that it has a 102 day supply of GMC and Chevrolet 3500 heavy-duty trucks. For 2500 trucks, supply is at 178 days.
