Americans registered 75% more Cadillac Escalades and Escalade ESVs in November 2014 than in November 2013 to go along with 88% more Lincoln Navigators, 32% more Mercedes-Benz G-Wagens, 16% more Toyota Land Cruisers, and 5% more Mercedes-Benz GLs.
Combined, that’s a gain of 2392 sales for these full-size behemoths during a month in which, according to Automotive News, passenger car sales declined by more than 400 units. That’s telling.
At Cadillac, the Escalade breakdown included 2106 regular-wheelbase SUVs, 1128 long-wheelbase ESVs, and three lingering Escalade EXTs. Lincoln doesn’t provide a breakdown for the Navigator and aptly named Navigator Long. We made that up, it’s the aptly Navigator L. Which stands for Long. Or Lengthened. Or Leggy. Definitely not Lessened.
