Midsize SUV Sales In Canada – March 2017


2018 Buick Enclave

Canadian sales of GM’s departing Lambda platform SUVs are on the rise as GM Canada clears out remaining models in anticipation of the arrival of a new Chevrolet Traverse and Buick Enclave.

The duo combined for 664 March 2017 sales and 897 in 2017 Q1, figures which were bolstered by the already-arrived GMC Acadia, which is smaller in second-gen form.

But in Canada, GM’s trio isn’t nearly as popular as the Ford Explorer or Toyota Highlander, Canada’s favourite three-row utility vehicles.

Explorer sales are up 40% this year. Highlander volume has risen 14%. 

Canadian sales of the Dodge Durango, Ford Flex, and Nissan Pathfinder are on the rise, as well. Mazda CX-9 volume has more than doubled, and while it remains a low-volume player, Mazda Canada is on track to smash last year’s all-time CX-9 sales record.

GCBC isn’t here to break down segments, an impossible task for any group, but to display sales data for the sake of comparison. The more ways sales data can be displayed, the better. This explains why you’ll see the Wrangler and Xterra listed with small SUVs, too, and the Subaru Outback shown with mainstream cars… because readers have wanted it both ways. You can always find the sales results for EVERY vehicle and form your own competitive sets by using the All Vehicle Rankings posts.
