After sales were counted and numbers were crunched, GMC’s retail sales for October showed a 6 percent increase over last year during the same period, making this the best October sales recorded since 2007. GMC pickup sales were a key player in that success.
Sales of GMC’s full-size Sierra totaled 18,564 units, which was an increase of 12 percent over October 2013 sales for the model. Meanwhile, the Sierra HD models continue to gain traction among customers looking for a truck that can handle heavier lifting without sacrificing comfort and style. HD models now account for 27 percent of Sierra models sold.
Of course, the GMC truck lineup recently added the all-new Canyon. The mid-size truck just completed its first full month of sales, and the assembly plant in Wentzville, Missouri is working hard to keep meeting customer demand.
“Given the unrivaled breadth of our pickup portfolio, it isn’t surprising to see GMC pickups gained popularity last month,” said Duncan Aldred, GMC’s U.S. vice president. “From Canyon to Sierra HD, along with the distinctive Denali and All-Terrain model lines, we’re able to offer customers a pickup that’s tailored to their needs.”
