General Motors said today its U.S. sales increased
11.5% in February compared with the same
month a year ago.

The Detroit automaker sold 141,951 cars and  
trucks
during the month, which was challenged
by severe winter storms on the East Coast.
Troubles for competitor Toyota also dominated
the news.
GM’s four core U.S. brands, Chevrolet, Cadillac,  
Buick
and GMC, saw a combined 32% sales
increase to 138,849 vehicles for the month.
As part of its sweeping restructuring, GM is
shedding its Pontiac, Saab, Hummer and
Saturn
brands. Those brands saw a combined 86.1%
sales decrease in February to 3,102 vehicles sold.
GM’s month was helped by strong sales of
recently launched vehicles such as the Chevrolet
Equinox, which was up 132.8%. Other strong
showings included a 163% sales increase of the
Buick LaCrosse and 541.7% increase of the
 
Cadillac SRX
, which sold 3,542 vehicles.
