DETROIT (WKZO) -- General Motors total sales for July were up by 16-percent over last year with retail sales climbing by 23-percent.

The increase was driven to a great extent by a 51-percent leap in full-size pickup sales.  All four of GM's brands posted double-digit increases.

"For GM, July was the most well-balanced month of the year from a retail sales standpoint:  trucks were hot," says GM vice president Kurt McNeil, "but so were small cars and family vehicles."
