Despite recent rumblings to the contrary, both General Motors and Chrysler claim that they will not be going bankrupt any time soon. Still, as much as the two American automakers would love to quell fears of unsustainable liquidity, questions remain, especially as the pickup market in the United States continues to dwindle. In a note sent out to dealers, Chrysler's Jim Press and Steven Landry say that the automaker will focus its efforts on small cars for the rest of this year, though the current pickings from the automaker's stable seem a bit slim. Chrysler is surely banking on its alliances to bolster its line of small car offerings, which could help to dampen the blow of lost truck profits -- somewhat. General Motors, for its part, has invested heavily into its upcoming Delta platform vehicles, which will include a compact Chevrolet-branded car known as the Cruze as well as the Chevy Volt electric vehicle.
