Cadillac sold more than twice as many Escalades in September 2014 than in September 2013 in the United States. Sales of the regular-wheelbase Escalade jumped 137% to 2290 units. The long-wheelbase ESV was up 94% to 1228.
Sales of the Mercedes-Benz GL-Class, meanwhile, have decreased in eleven consecutive months.
The GL remains tremendously popular, but it can’t put up Escalade-like numbers, at least not the kinds of numbers achieved by the two remaining Escalade variants.
Total Mercedes-Benz SUV/crossover sales jumped 17% to 9453 units in September 2014. The GL accounted for 23% of that total, the G-Class another 2%, and the new entry-level GLA another 10%.
The Escalade family generated 25% of all Cadillac sales in September.
