Large SUV Sales In Canada - January 2017

2017 Ford Expedition Max offroad
January has traditionally been an exceptionally low-volume month for full-size SUVs in Canada. As a result, the fact that sales slid 7% – despite growth in the market at large – in January 2017 is not likely a sign that full-size SUV sales will fall 7% in calendar year 2017.

They may. But January is not an accurate predictor of any outcome. Only 4.5% of the full-size, volume brand, truck-based, body-on-frame SUVs sold in Canada in 2016 were sold in January, a period that accounts for 8.5% of the calendar.

Regardless, after dominating the category throughout 2016, GM's quartet stumbled in January 2017 as Ford, Nissan, and Toyota produced meaningful improvements with the Expedition, Armada, and Sequoia, respectively. 

Still, more than half the market went GM's way, but Chevrolet/GMC full-size SUV volume slid 35%. 

In 2016, GM owned 68% of the category. In January 2016, specifically, GM Canada owned 74% of the category.

The top-selling Ford Expedition's 199 total January 2017 sales represented a 79% year-over-year increase.
