Together, the Cadillac Escalade, Escalade ESV, Escalade EXT, Infiniti QX56, Land Rover Range Rover, Lexus LX570, and Lincoln Navigator sold exactly as often as the Mercedes-Benz GL-Class and its über-niche G-Class in Canada in December 2012.
In the United States, 4.9% of the GL/G total stemmed from the stunning and strangely archaic G-Wagen. If that figure is identical in Canada, which I’m almost certain it is not, Mercedes-Benz Canada would have sold 97 G-Class military grade beasts in 2012 along with 1876 GL-Class SUVs.
Total GL-Class and G-Class sales rose 15% in 2012. Sales of the Range Rover also rose 15%. Lexus LX570 sales more than doubled, but the total remains weak. Sales of the Lincoln Navigator, Infiniti QX56, and Cadillac Escalade all declined. Year-over-year, Canada’s overall new vehicle market grew 5.7%.
