Large Luxury SUV Sales In America - December 2016 & 2016 Year End

2017 Cadillac Escalade
U.S. sales of the regular-wheelbase Cadillac Escalade increased in 2016 to the highest level seen since 2008. The long-wheelbase Escalade ESV enjoyed a boost to the highest level since 2007.

At the opposite end of the spectrum, the Toyota Land Cruiser's U.S. sales volume reached an eight-year high.

Across the full-size luxury SUV segment, sales grew 10% in 2016, year-over-year. Credit isn't only owed to the high-volume Cadillac and low-volume Toyota.

2016 was the best year ever for the Infiniti QX80. The Toyota Land Cruiser's Lexus LX570 sibling climbed to an eight-year high. The Mercedes-Benz G-Class grew its U.S. sales for a seventh consecutive year. The Mercedes-Benz GLS-Class, formerly known as the GL, reached an all-time high.

Hugely profitable when not selling at record levels, these flagship luxury SUVs are presumably far more lucrative now that sales are shooting through the roof.
