Through 2013’s first ten months, General Motors has sold 207,108 Lambda platform crossovers – Acadia, Enclave, Traverse – far outweighing what Ford has managed with the Explorer alone, in terms of volume.
Sales of SUVs and crossovers at Ford and Lincoln are up 10.5% to 603,332 through ten months of 2013. GM SUV/CUV sales, further pushed forward by the addition of the Buick Encore, are up 15.8% to 779,019 through the end of October. Even without the Encore, GM utility vehicle sales are up 11.9%.
Japanese automakers own 22% of the midsize category, as it’s defined in the first table below. Detroit manufacturers still attract the majority of buyers who are looking for bigger mainstream brand SUVs and crossovers.
