GM consistently lags its competitors in innovation and design. Public perception in the U.S. also took a hit with the bailout and could lead "buy-American" consumers to choose Ford over GM when purchasing automobiles in the future. Last and most importantly, GM cannot be cost competitive when you consider their higher labor costs and future obligations to their retirees. This will ultimately prevent them from being able to invest in R&D to the extent necessary to become an industry leader in innovation.
