Long gone are the days of wondering about GMC’s future in the American automotive market. For the last 20 months, GMC has recorded huge year-over-year gains and has just document its best Q3 since 2005.
Just in September, GMC U.S. sales (retail) saw a 20.5 percent increase, and when you include commercial customer and fleet sales, that number hops up to a whopping 24 percent, making this GMC’s best September since 2004.
Across the board, the automotive industry has been reporting strong numbers, but nothing quite like the numbers coming from the GMC U.S. sales reports. The brand’s retail sales of crossovers, pickups, and SUVs are up 12.6 percent in the first 9 months of the year. That 12.6 might seem small to the untrained eye, but when you consider that it’s more than twice the industry average, it starts to feel a whole lot bigger.
The Acadia, Terrain, Yukon and Yukon XL, and the Canyon are performing exceptionally well. Americans seem to love the tough-but-luxurious vibes GMC is putting out these days.
