“This sustained growth in sales and our 44-percent conquest rate tell us the precision-crafted elements of our crossovers, trucks and SUVs are connecting with discerning customers seeking refinement and capability,” said Duncan Aldred, U.S. vice president, Buick and GMC Sales, Service and Marketing. “I expect our new introductions [the new and improved 2016 Sierra, 2016 Terrain, and the Duramax diesel-powered 2016 Canyon] will continue the great success we’re experiencing at GMC.”
