Like the rest of the auto industry, the Mary Barra-led company has had a tough year, which is reflected in its three-spot drop in our Global 500 ranking. Annual revenues were down 5.5% as wholesale volumes shrank and inventory ballooned in the wake of reduced demand. The automaker has moved aggressively to counter those trends, though, by reducing inventory and rolling out several new models in the surprisingly strong crossover, SUV, and truck categories. The company believes its belt-tightening and strategic refocus, while costly in the short term, will position it for a solid 2018.
