DETROIT(WXYZ) - History was made in Detroit Sunday night and it happened for a few reasons. For the first time on a huge stage, we heard from Mary Barra, the incoming CEO of GM.
Barra is the first woman to lead the American Automaker.
Barra spoke for several minutes at the Russell Industrial Center today about new cars and trucks leading the way for GM. She also unveiled the brand new 2015 GMC Canyon Midsize Truck which currently is the only American truck built in its class.
The truck is being built in St. Louis and is already generating a lot of buzz.
Moments after the big reveal, the incoming CEO who officially takes over Jan. 15th spoke with our own Joanne Purtan.
