is this the updates they will do to their cars in 2009? It seems like 6 speeds and Bluetooth are standard on all models, as I look through

I barely have time to read and contribute to this forum anymore, and certainly not enough time to learn about future GM products, so I am wondering what exactly does GM have coming in a full hybrid offering soon? It seems their mild hybrids don't sell very well, being entirely outsold so far by Ford's Escape/Mariner by a factor of nearly 6 in the same time frame.

anyone have direct links to the .pdf's?
every time I try to view one my browser freezes up :(
my impression from skimming a GMI thread is that the main changes happen next year << that may not be fair or accurate, have major time/attention deficit lately

The changes I noted:
DTS: No major changes in 2009
Lucerne: Gets 3.9L V-6 with the current 4 speed auto. Super gets Northstar V-8

I think GM would be wise to make all their cars mild hybrids, its a cheap and very clever and efficient technology and would give them a very important edge.

^^^ New generation mild hybrids will have improved regenerative braking, (for both power and feel) more powerful emotors and better batery technology) giving the user more epush without firing up the gasoline motor, I gather...
