Canadian sales of full-size, volume brand SUVs jumped 38% in January 2015 following January 2014’s 10% decline. (January 2015 sales were up 24% compared with January 2013.) The GMC Yukon was Canada’s top seller, 12 units ahead of its twin, the Chevrolet Tahoe. Last January’s leader, the Ford Expedition, fell to fourth spot.
General Motors’ market share in the category grew to 68.7% from 53.3% one year ago. The four GM nameplates in the list below, together with the Cadillac Escalade and Escalade ESV, accounted for 4.4% of GM Canada’s January volume.
Oddly, the top seller in the GM group was not any of the four shown here. The Cadillac Escalade reported a 459% year-over-year improvement to 123 January sales before even taking into account the 30 long-wheelbase versions sold last month. GCBC will showcase the Escalade lineup in another segment breakdown that features SUVs from Infiniti, Lexus, Land Rover, and Mercedes-Benz.
