Our Take On The Vehicle sales Numbers

September was a tough month for many big-sellers in the USA, as one fewer selling day coupled to the replacement rushes following the hurricanes a year ago leading to a lot of red in the sales chart for September 2018.

With General Motors having reported its figures for the past quarter we can see now the Chevrolet Silverado remains the second-top selling vehicle for the year so far, despite sales having dipped by 20% last month.

Equinox continues to fare well in the small SUV and crossover segment, finishing Q3 2018 just inside the top ten in terms of volume delivered so far this year, but for the month it’s still well behind the trio of Japanese SUVs that currently dominate its segment.
