DETROIT (WKZO) -- Total U.S. sales for General Motors in May increased by 13-percent over a year ago with retail sales going up by ten-percent.

"The momentum we generated in April carried into May, with all four brands performing well in a growing economy and 17 vehicle lines posting double-digit retail sales increases or better," says Vice President Kurt McNeil.

Highlights of the month include a 41-percent increase in Chevrolet Cruze sales, Camaro sales jumping by 30-percent and a 23-percent increase in Impala sales. Overall, May was the best sales month for GM since August of 2008.
