Canada – Large SUV Sales Figures

The GCBC Analysis

the Large SUV segment in Canada had a bit of a rough time in the month of August when you compare it to that same month last year. YTD numbers also looked troublesome.

The segment saw about 300 fewer sales in the month of August than it did that month last year. YTD the segment is down about 500 units when you compare it to last year.

The Ford Expedition and the GMC Yukon are the only models that saw sales rise in August and have seen sales rise so far this year. The GMC Yukon XL has also seen sales rise slightly so far this year.

The Ford Expedition is the only model with significant rises in sales, though. The vehicle was up over 92 percent for the month of August, and it has been up more than 46 percent so far this year.

We expect the coming months to be more of the same. The Ford Expedition will likely continue to sell pretty well and the rest of the field will struggle.

Below you will find sales figures for all Large SUVs sold in Canada broken down by month and by quarter.
