GM, Ford drops light trucks for crossovers

Reports are saying that the slump in SUV sales has prompted Detroit automakers General Motors and Ford to drop several light trucks in favor of crossovers.

According to AutoWeek, GM will stop production of its Chevrolet TrailBlazer and GMC Envoy mid-sized SUVs by 2010. Ford for its part is reportedly planning to drop the Mercury Monterey minivan this year, followed by its Ford Freestar twin at an unspecified date.

Both automakers plan to concentrate on their new-generation crossovers for GM, the GMC Acadia, Saturn Outlook and Buick Enclave, and for Ford, a production version of the Ford Fairlane concept for both the Ford and Lincoln brands is reportedly in the works.
