General Motors has seen a boost in first-quarter profits, with a net income of $3.2 billion.
What does this mean for the industry?
Well, it means that things continue to improve overall with the state of the economy and the automotive industry. But it also means that GM has improved its product offerings, becoming much more attractive to customers.
That means GM is better positioned to fight off rivals such as Ford, Toyota, and Honda, which will give it more strength going forward.
GM still faces plenty of challenges. But it's in much better shape to face those challenges than it was.
