Background on Daewoo
In 2001, General Motors (GM) acquired Daewoo Motor Ltd. from the South Korean conglomerate Daewoo Group which broke into individual companies due to the 1997 Asian financial crises. The new subsidiary, GM Daewoo, manufactured small cars for GM divisions including Suzuki and Chevrolet in the United States. In 2011, the subsidiary was renamed to GM Korea to reflect its leveled up status in GM’s operations worldwide. GM re-badged most of the Daewoo-branded vehicles as Chevrolet. Daewoo cars (including Swift, Forenza, and Reno) and Verona, are currently being marketed under the Suzuki banner in the United States.
