Large Luxury SUV Sales In America - March 2017

A huge increase in U.S. sales of the Mercedes-Benz GLS-Class – a comparison aided by the transition from GL to GLS at this time a year ago – brought about a 24% year-over-year increase in U.S. sales of flagship large luxury SUV sales in March 2017.

Despite a 12% drop in sales of the Cadillac Escalade, previously the segment leader, and a 32% plunge in sales of the Lincoln Navigator in the lead-up to a new Navigator's launch, category-wide volume grew by 2295 units. The GLS and Escalade accounted for just under half of the sales reported here.
