U.S. large SUV sales chart November 2011

Three of seven jumbo truck-based sport-utility vehicles on sale in the United States reported year-over-year increases better than the market’s overall improvement. Another, the GMC Yukon XL, was up 12.5% in November 2011. Sales of the Nissan Armada were up 2%. The Ford Expedition’s 0.7% drop wasn’t even that bad. In fact, it wasn’t bad enough to drop the Expedition below third-in-class status.

Armada sales are down on year-to-date terms, however, as are sales of the Toyota Sequoia. Sales of the Toyota fell 9% in November. The overall jumbo SUV market was worth 2.6% of America’s new vehicle market last month.
