For the first time since December, the Cadillac Escalade family outsold the Mercedes-Benz GL-Class SUV. In order for the Escalade to do so, Cadillac sells two different vehicles, the regular-wheelbase Escalade and the long-wheelbase Escalade ESV. (Only three copies of the defunct Avalanche-based Escalade EXT were sold in May 2014.)
It’s not as though Mercedes-Benz USA’s GL sales total was low, although GL volume has declined, year-over-year, in seven consecutive months.
Mercedes-Benz is currently selling an average of 2000 copies of their $63,000-$118,160 SUV. Cars.com reports that there are only 1731 GLs currently in stock, as global demand for the Alabama-built GL forces U.S. supply downward.
