You canít just buy anything you want. GM is a publicly traded company, itís shareholders wouldnít let that happen.
Not to mention the turnaround to stopping existing FCA/GM products, then turning around and putting federalized versions of Chinese designs into US factories would take a long time. Not to mention, at last for GM by in large, only big SUVís and pickup trucks are made here in the US. The handful of cars GM still makes are sourced from Mexico, China, or South Korea.
Even still, Baojun once again is a group brand. The only real possibility would be SAIC maybe wanting to take complete control of Baojun, but I doubt GM would let that happen since Baojun is very profitable for them.
