That’s the scuttlebutt The Sleuth’s sources are picking up. Word on the street is that the models most at risk are the full-size Buick LaCrosse, Cadillac XTS and Chevrolet Impala sedans, all of which are built using the same platform. At the smaller end of the size scale, the sub-compact Chevrolet Sonic could receive a pink slip. If the decision is made to cancel, the axe would not likely fall until the end of 2019. In addition, the next-generation Chevrolet Volt that’s not due out until the 2022 model year could resemble a tall wagon, not unlike the smaller all-electric Chevy Bolt. It’s also possible that more popular wagon body styles will be introduced to replace the outgoing sedans.
