GM Canada sold 1224 copies of their full-size Lambda-platform crossovers in October 2014, a 32% year-over-year increase as the Enclave jumped 28%, Traverse sales were up 19%, and Acadia sales shot up 44%.
Big gains were were produced by few other three-row utility vehicles last month. The Hyundai Santa Fe XL rose 38% to 429 units, but Toyota Highlander volume slid slightly and the aging Honda Pilot was down 11%. Dodge Durango sales, up 48% this year, slid 32% in October.
The Ford Explorer continues to be Canada’s leading three-row utility vehicle, but sales of tweener-sized two rows like the Ford Edge (soon to be replaced) and Hyundai Santa Fe Sport are far stronger.
Unlike American car buyers, when Canadians think three rows, they’re far more likely to pursue a Dodge Grand Caravan than an Explorer.
