Together, the Cadillac Escalade, Escalade ESV, Escalade EXT, Infiniti QX56, Land Rover Range Rover, Lexus LX570, and Lincoln Navigator sold exactly as often as the Mercedes-Benz GL-Class and its über-niche G-Class in Canada in December 2012.

In the United States, 4.9% of the GL/G total stemmed from the stunning and strangely archaic G-Wagen. If that figure is identical in Canada, which I’m almost certain it is not, Mercedes-Benz Canada would have sold 97 G-Class military grade beasts in 2012 along with 1876 GL-Class SUVs.

Total GL-Class and G-Class sales rose 15% in 2012. Sales of the Range Rover also rose 15%. Lexus LX570 sales more than doubled, but the total remains weak. Sales of the Lincoln Navigator, Infiniti QX56, and Cadillac Escalade all declined. Year-over-year, Canada’s overall new vehicle market grew 5.7%.

As always, you can find historical monthly and yearly sales figures for these SUVs and any other vehicle by selecting a make and model at GCBC’s Sales Stats home or by clicking the model name in the table below. Fortunately, the table is now sortable. Click the column headers in the tables to sort by December 2012 volume or 2012 year end volume or re-sort alphabetically.
