America’s new vehicle market is up 13.9% in 2012. The light truck market, which includes anything from minivans to pickup trucks, is up 9.6%.
Don’t thank full-size sport-utility vehicles for any of the industry’s good fortunes this year. America’s seven full-size, truck-based, mainstream brand SUVs found 231,688 buyers in the first eleven months of 2011 but only 208,393 in the first eleven months of 2012. That equals an 11.2% drop. Again, this didn’t occur in a stagnant automobile market but in a thriving, growing, burgeoning market.
Only one of the seven nameplates in the category has posted a year-over-year gain through November 2012. That vehicle is the Toyota Sequoia, the worst-selling vehicle in the class. U.S. Sequoia sales are up 4.7% this year, equal to 518 extra sales. A proverbial drop in the bucket. The Toyota brand is up by 358,599 sales.
The worst large SUV declines? GMC Yukon sales are down 21.2%; 6406 lost sales. Its twin, the Chevrolet Tahoe, is down 16.4%, equal to 11,795 lost sales. You’ve heard about GM’s scant 3.5% sales improvement this year? If we exclude the two big Chevy SUVs and two big GMCs from the conversation, General Motors sales are up 4.8% in 2012.
