The 2017 GMC Sierra HD will be even more powerful than last year’s model

GMC reported sales totaling 47,412 trucks, SUVs, and vans in July, a year-over-year volume decrease of 7.3%. Retail sales fell off 9.3% year-over-year with 43,349 vehicles delivered.

Despite the overall fall in volume for the month, the GMC brand as a whole boosted its best-ever month of retail ATPs (average transaction prices) with an 8% year-over-year increase. This was led in large part by the Sierra, which boasted the highest retail ATP in the full-size pickup segment for the month and was aided even further by a 6% lift at retail for the Sierra HD lineup in July. Retail sales were also up for the Yukon, which got a 4% year-over-year bump for its best July in a decade.

Savana sales nearly tripled from July 2016, increasing from 726 vans last year to 2,095 this year.

Sales of the Sierra totaled 19,963 vehicles (down 11%), sales of the Terrain totaled 5,721 vehicles (down 39%), sales of the Yukon totaled 4,370 vehicles (down 6.6%), sales of the Yukon XL totaled 2,780 vehicles (down 5.3%), and sales of the Canyon totaled 2,761 vehicles (down 21.8%).
