GM to Expand XM Radios to 23 Models This Year

In one of the fastest technology rollouts ever at General Motors, XM Satellite Radio will be offered on an additional 21 models this fall - from the Chevy Cavalier to the Cadillac Escalade EXT.
In November, GM became the first auto manufacturer to offer XM as a factory-installed option on 2002 Cadillac DeVilles and Sevilles. Beginning this fall, the start of the '03 model year, the XM option will be available on the following models:
Buick: Rendezvous, LeSabre; Cadillac: Escalade, Escalade EXT, DeVille, Seville; Chevrolet: Avalanche, Cavalier, Impala, Monte Carlo, Silverado, Suburban, Tahoe; GMC: Denali, Denali XL, Sierra, Yukon, Yukon XL; OLDS: Alero; Pontiac: Aztek; Bonneville, Grand Am, Sunfire.
"These additional models will maintain GM's leadership position over other OEM competitors in terms of offering factory-installed XM Satellite Radios," said Rick Lee, executive director of XM Satellite Radio Services for GM. Lee was also a panelist at last week's CES session "It's All Digital; Riding the Waves of a New Radio Landscape," moderated by Radio World News Editor/Washington Bureau Chief Leslie Stimson.
Lee told attendees satellite radio could represent 50% of the radio production mix in GM vehicles within 5 years.
