Large SUV Sales Figures In Canada – July 2013 YTD


2014 Chevrolet Tahoe silver

Although Canada’s large SUV market rose 57% in July 2013, year-to-date sales of these seven full-size, truck-based, mainstream brand sport-utilities remain sharply down from the first seven months in 2012.

It’s a tiny market, regardless, and thus has very little impact on the industry’s bottom line north of the U.S. border. (Sales of these seven SUVs are up 9% in the U.S. this year.) For every full-size SUV sold in Canada in July, Toyota sold 3.6 RAV4s. Compare that with the results south of the border, where sales of these seven sport-utes were 24% stronger than RAV4 sales.

There were strong results in July, nevertheless. Chevrolet Tahoe sales, prone to the same sort of Canadian volume fluctuation we see with the Suburban and Chevrolet’s GMC twins, rose 373% last month. GMC Yukon volume shot up 143%. Chevrolet sold 72% more Suburbans, but that only works out to a 36-unit increase.
