Large SUV Sales Figures In Canada – August 2013 YTD


Sales of GM’s four full-size Chevrolet and GM SUVs rose 123% in August and are up 25% so far this year. They account for very little of GM’s total market share in Canada, just 2.1% in August 2013. But that’s up from 1.5% in August 2012.

Such strong sales caused GM’s market share in the category to increase from 70.6% in August 2012 to 82.5% in August 2013.

Year-to-date, all three rivals from Ford, Nissan, and Toyota have posted declining volume. (GMC’s own Yukon XL is down 7% this year.) At this time last year, Ford Canada had sold 1342 Expeditions. 

The Expedition’s decline, combined with the Tahoe’s 44% year-over-year increase, has seen the Expedition fall to second place in the large SUV sales race, and it’s in danger of sliding into third. GMC’s Yukon, a Tahoe twin, is only 94 sales back.
