Large Luxury SUV Sales In America – May 2014 YTD


2014 Cadillac Escalade black

For the first time since December, the Cadillac Escalade family outsold the Mercedes-Benz GL-Class SUV. In order for the Escalade to do so, Cadillac sells two different vehicles, the regular-wheelbase Escalade and the long-wheelbase Escalade ESV. (Only three copies of the defunct Avalanche-based Escalade EXT were sold in May 2014.)

Cadillac sold 1664 copies of the Escalade, a 61% year-over-year increase. Another 846 copies of the ESV were sold, a 22% improvement. 

General Motors also sold 22,225 Suburbans, Tahoes, Yukons, and Yukon XLs in May.

It’s not as though Mercedes-Benz USA’s GL sales total was low, although GL volume has declined, year-over-year, in seven consecutive months. 

Mercedes-Benz is currently selling an average of 2000 copies of their $63,000-$118,160 SUV. Cars.com reports that there are only 1731 GLs currently in stock, as global demand for the Alabama-built GL forces U.S. supply downward.

    I think if you start sorting by no of units sold, it would be easier to read the top performing cars.
