Large Luxury SUV Sales In America - August 2014 YTD

2014 Toyota Land Cruiser
U.S. sales of the regular-wheelbase Cadillac Escalade declined in 2013. Just as they declined in 2012. And 2011, 2010, 2009, 2008, and 2007.

Sales of the Escalade are up 43% in 2014, having most recently jumped 89% during the month of August. Cadillac's long-wheelbase Escalade, the ESV, is up 22% this year; up 64% in August. 

6419 ESVs have been sold in 2014, more than the whole Lincoln Navigator range, more than the Lexus LX570 and Toyota Land Cruiser combined. 

Globally, the Mercedes-Benz GL-Class is a popular vehicle by the standards of high-priced three-row SUVs. U.S. sales tumbled through the first seven months of 2014 and fell yet again, 19%, in August. But availability isn't great: Cars.com says there are 1848 GLs currently in stock at U.S. dealers. 

There aren't many Escalades available either, just 1874 in addition to 935 Escalade ESVs. Regardless, the Escalade is of the moment, the GL much less so. Whether this fourth Escalade has the staying power that the GL has - the third clearly didn't - remains to be seen.
