DETROIT – GMC sold 43,854 trucks, vans and utility vehicles last month, marking its best November sales result in 13 years. Retail sales rose 31.1 percent, the brand’s 10th consecutive month of year-over-year retail sales gains.
The full-size Sierra pickup posted sales of 22,458 in November, up 57 percent year over year, and marking the model’s best November ever.
The new heavy-duty 2015 Sierra 2500 HD and Sierra 3500 HD pickups continue to play a sizable role in the Sierra portfolio’s growth, combining for roughly a quarter of all new Sierra pickups sold in November.
“As evidenced by our November sales results, customers continue to turn to the Sierra for a pickup truck that’s both strong and stylish,” said Duncan Aldred, U.S. vice president of GMC sales and marketing. “Between the Sierra and Sierra HD, along with distinctive model lines like the All-Terrain and Sierra Denali, we offer a truck that not only fits the task at hand, but also reflects the unique style, personality and preferences of the customer.”
Customers seeking GMC’s signature style, strength, and sophistication in a smaller, more agile package are choosing the 2015 GMC Canyon. Early production models began arriving at dealerships nationwide in late September, but they haven’t stayed long – selling in an average of 12 days.
Several GMC sport utility and crossover vehicles also sold well in November. Retail sales of the GMC Terrain – those to individual customers – grew 10 percent year over year, marking the model’s best November sales since its introduction in late 2009. Meanwhile, retail sales of the 2015 Yukon increased 73.5 percent year over year, making it the Yukon’s best November result in seven years.
GMC has manufactured trucks since 1902, with innovation and engineering excellence built into all GMC vehicles. The brand is evolving to offer more fuel-efficient trucks and crossovers, including the Terrain small SUV and Acadia crossover. GMC’s highest-volume vehicle, the Sierra pickup, is the most powerful light duty pickup on the market, and the first full-size pickup to receive the highest possible five-star Overall Vehicle Score for safety since the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration changed its New Car Assessment Program for the 2011 model year.
