2014 GMC US Sales Wrap-Up: Best Year Since 2005
GMC is ushering in 2015 by reflecting on all of its successes in 2014, and it has plenty of blessings to count. Specifically, GMC has around 501,863 reasons to celebrate the year that was, tantamount to the number of vehicles it sold in the United States.
The 501,863-unit sales mark is good for an 11.3% improvement over full-year 2013 sales and the best result that GMC has experienced in the United States in nine years. Retail sales were up 11.8% with a total of 437,514 units.
GMC was led by the Sierra, which accounted for 211,833 units and a 14.9% increase over 2013 sales. The next-best-seller, the Terrain, moved slightly less than half that volume with 105,016 deliveries (up 5.5% year-over-year).
Despite being down 6.5% from 2013, the Acadia chipped in an impressive 83,972 units. The Yukon was up 56.9% with sales totaling 41,569 units, and the Yukon XL added 29,752 units (down 4.8%). The Savana added 26,641 units, up 59.5% from 2013.
One of GMC’s biggest stories was the revamped and relaunched Canyon mid-size pickup, which closed the year with 3,070 sales since originally hitting the market in September.
GMC’s 2014 result marks the first time that the brand has sold more than a half-million vehicles in the United States since it moved 537,572 vehicles back in 2005.
