    I don't understand what you guys don't see in this cutting edge design, it apparently passed all the customer clinics.

    Looks terrible. Was it designed by McLaren?

    'Reminds me a lot of the 1960 GMC/CHEV C50's grille...one row of this-or-that atop another.

    That was designed by a Committee... google "GM nod"

    Lutz once described how massive binders of Powerpoints had sacred "design cues" that every new GM model must have

    Like the Bowtie for Chevys, the Olds Rocket, the Pontiac / Caddy Shield...and these cues had to be EVERYWERE on the cars and even on brochures, and dealer buildings.

    Look closely, that Grille has the cross "+" bowtie and some six-figure HQ Staffer created it/

    Thankfully, Barra is firing all these salaried bozos at HQ and hopefully hiring software/ battery engineers.

    Death by Powepoint afflicts much of Big 3 and other major Institutions.


    "One of the most colorful descriptions of the cultural morass came from CEO Mary Barra herself. She described for investigators a phenomenon known as the "GM nod."

    "The GM nod, Barra described, is when everyone nods in agreement to a proposed plan of action, but then leaves the room with no intention of follow through," the report reads. "It is an idiomatic recognition of a culture that does not move issues forward quickly, as the story of the Cobalt demonstrates."

    There was also the "GM salute," described by another interviewee as "a crossing of the arms and pointing outward toward others, indicating that the responsibility belongs to someone else, not me."
