GM is betting big on its plug-in Chevy Volt for 2010.
Chrysler: A new Jeep Grand Cherokee arrives next year along with a restyled Chrysler 300C and Dodge Charger. But Fiat products aren't expected to start hitting the market for another two years, and even then, their market acceptance is questionable.
Grade: D

Ford: Long-awaited small cars from Europe arrive next year; first the subcompact Fiesta, then the compact Focus. Question mark: Will American customers pay more to buy small?
Grade: B

General Motors: Still to come in 2009 are a Chevy Equinox and Cadillac SRX crossovers and Buick LaCrosse. The summer of 2010 brings a new small car, the Chevy Cruze, and late in the year, the plug-in Chevy Volt. It is an impressive lineup, but will customers be scared off by GM's financial woes?
Grade: B
