Canadians registered 658 new full-size mainstream brand sport-utility vehicles in December 2012. 59% of those SUVs were General Motors products, but the Ford Expedition was the class leader, outselling the GMC Yukon by 21 units.
The Expedition was one of three full-size sport-utes to post a year-over-year volume increase in Canada in 2012. Compared with 2011, Expedition sales jumped 12%, good enough to beat the second-ranked GMC Yukon by 684 units. 7586 of these SUVs were sold in 2012, including the Kia Borrego’s four units. GM owned 58% of the market, Ford another 25%, and the Asians the other 17%.
But the large SUV category is an awfully small category in Canada. Numerous midsize utility vehicles – including the Hyundai Santa Fe and Kia Sorento, which GCBC also displays with small SUVs – outsold the whole large SUV segment with ease. Ford markets three different utility vehicles which outsell the Expedition and the Expedition’s rivals combined.

Speaking of Fords which outsell other SUVs, the Explorer beat the Jeep Grand Cherokee by eleven units. The Explorer also managed to outsell the Toyota 4Runner and Highlander, Toyota’s midsize tandem, something it most definitely did not do south of the border.
