Cumulative GMC Acadia sales increased in the United States and decreased in Canada during April 2017.
GMC Acadia Sales – April 2017 – United States
GMC Acadia deliveries in the United States totaled 10,164 units in April 2017, an increase of 45 percent compared to 7,004 units sold in April 2016. The results set a new April sales record for the Acadia, with the next best April sales performance being April 2015, when the first-gen model accounted for 8,767 deliveries.
In addition, Acadia retail deliveries were up 42 percent and the Acadia has gained a full point of retail segment share in 2017 driven by the all-new 2017 model launched in 2016.
In the first four months of 2017, sales of the midsize crossover increased 53.6 percent to 39,276 units.
The GM Authority Take
The Acadia’s continued sales growth shows that the second-generation of the crossover lands at the sweet spot of the crossover space even more so than the first-generation model, most likely as a result of being smaller and more maneuverable, therefore appealing to a broader potential customer base over its predecessor. In fact, the sales performance of the new Acadia has made us conclude that GM bet big on making the second-gen Acadia smaller, and the bet has paid off.
We expect that the Acadia will continue to post sales volume growth in the months ahead thanks to various factors working in its favor, including the ongoing shift in consumer vehicle buying dynamics that favor crossovers (at the expense of other vehicle types, like sedans and coupes) as well as the Acadia’s transition from the full-size into the mid-size mainstream crossover segment.
