General Motors’ US sales rose 1.5% in November with a total of 229,296 vehicles sold. Retail sales were up 4.4% at 183,141 units delivered. Both figures benefitted substantially from a big month for Chevrolet and impressive performances from models across the GMC, Cadillac, and Buick brands.

As has been the case all year, GM’s crossovers were integral to its success, thanks in no small part to a 12th straight month of combined sales gains for Chevy’s crossovers, an impressive 23rd straight month of growth for the Encore, and sales of the Cadillac SRX increasing by 53% year-over-year.

“The phenomenal growth of crossovers in a record-setting market is the biggest sales story of 2015,” said Kurt McNeil, GM’s U.S. vice president of Sales Operations. “Buick was one of the pioneers of the fast-growing small crossover segment with the Encore. Chevrolet’s crossover sales growth is far outpacing the rest of the industry, thanks to the Trax, Equinox and Traverse. And the GMC Terrain is on track to have its best year ever.”

To date, GM’s US sales total is 2,792,136 vehicles, up 4.9% from the year prior.
