Oshawa, Ontario (August 1, 2013) — Chevrolet, Buick, GMC and Cadillac dealers delivered 19,164 vehicles in July 2013.  GM Canada sales are up more than 3 per cent for the calendar year.  

“Cadillac continues its strong performance in the Canadian market with its 10th consecutive month of sales increases,” said Rob Assimakopoulos, GM of Canada’s general director of marketing and communications.  “For the calendar year, Cadillac has grown by more than 33 per cent driven by the multi-award-winning ATS and Oshawa-built XTS.  When the new CTS joins the Cadillac portfolio later this year, Cadillac’s car line up will be all-new featuring the performance, design and technology desired by luxury drivers.” 

The 2014 Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra trucks continue to roll into dealerships and Canadians are responding to these stronger, smarter and more capable pick-up trucks, which are all-new from hood-to-hitch.
