The large luxury SUV segment showed strong sales results in the month of October and has performed pretty well YTD, too, with most models seeing notable sales increases.
The segment was up by about 170 units in the month of October. The segment has also seen sales rise YTD. The rise equates to about 1,800 units.
When you look at the segment leader for the month of October, the Mercedes-Benz GLS-Class is the leader. When you look YTD, the leader is the Cadillac Escalade even though it’s sales are down by over 12 percent for the year.
We expect the segment to continue to see good sales in the coming months but they might not continue at quite this clip. It’ll be interesting to see how next year goes.
