GM is also considering discontinuing Chevrolet Impala in the next few years, while Ford Motor Co (F.N) will stop making the Fiesta small car for the U.S. market by as early as next year, the Journal reported on Wednesday.

The move comes at a time when U.S. consumers are increasingly shunning passenger cars in favor of more comfortable SUVs and pickup trucks.
