Even in a hugely improved month, even with both its variants combined, the Cadillac Escalade didn’t sell nearly as often as the Mercedes-Benz GL-Class in Canada. July 2014 Escalade volume jumped 112%; the Escalade and Escalade ESV alone were up 214%.
Mercedes-Benz Canada, however, reported a 72% year-over-year gain in sales of its GL-Class three-row SUV, climbing from 118 units in July 2013 to 203 last month, the GL’s fifth consecutive month above 200 units.
In Canada, GL pricing starts at $74,900 and rises to $124,900 before options for the GL63 AMG.
Pricing for the new Escalade begins at $79,900 and fully optioned doesn’t quite reach $100,000. Land Rover’s new long-wheelbase version of the Range Rover has a Canadian base price of $119,990.
