General Motors Co.'s U.S. sales rose 11 percent in April on continuing demand for pickups as well as small cars.

Sales of the Chevrolet Silverado full-size pickup rose 28 percent to more than 39,000. Truck sales have been strong all year on rising demand from home builders and other businesses.

GM also saw double-digit increases for its small cars, including the Buick Verano and Chevrolet Cruze and Chevrolet Sonic.

All of GM's four brands saw higher sales than last April. Cadillac sales rose 34 percent as the new ATS and XTS hit the market, while Buick and Chevrolet were both up 11 percent.

The Chevrolet Volt electric car was down 11 percent.
