For the first time since the recession, SUVs are regaining some of the momentum it lost to its crossover brethren and finding newfound popularity in the car market. If you’re talking about a resurgence in the full-size SUV segment, you must first look at the offerings of General Motors, whose 2015 model year lineup includes new and improved iterations of the Chevrolet Tahoe and Suburban, GMC Yukon and Yukon XL, and the Cadillac Escalade.
GM announced that it pulled in a third-quarter net income of $1.4 billion, thanks in large part to the success of its SUVs and pickup trucks.
“The new trucks and SUVs are more profitable than the ones they replaced. That certainly helps from a profit perspective,” said GM Chief Financial Officer Chuck Stevens.
The 2014-2015 GMC Yukon has been a big part of GM’s success through the first nine months of 2014: to date, GMC has delivered 52,612 models between the Yukon and the Yukon XL. This amounts to a year-to-date increase of 62.3% in the United States.
