Some Industry News.

While General Motors in general showed strong growth over the course of the last month, we’re happy to report that sales of the same Buick and GMC once again led the way. Buick once again led the way with a remarkable 52.69% increase in sales over June 2009, while GMC followed closely behind with a 45% improvement.

Buick’s numbers were, in large part, a result of the overwhelmingly positive response to the 2010 LaCrosse. The LaCrosse alone was responsible for nearly 5,400 sales, although the Enclave followed closely behind with a total of 4,561 units sold. The Lucerne and Regal rounded out the lineup, with figures of 2,875 and 321 respectively.
Comparatively, GMC’s sales were led by the Sierra, with a total of 11,441 trucks being sold to consumers during June. GMC’s strong numbers were also augmented by the Acadia, with 5,862 units being moved, as well as the Terrain, with 4,603 units being moved.

Overall, these numbers underscore what has been a trend not just with General Motors as a whole, but with the Buick and GMC brands respectively. As we’ve noted in the past, much about the culture of the companies has been rebuilt from the ground up, and that change in philosophy has been reflected in the quality and success each brand is now experiencing.

So, for those of you who have yet to see the strides that Buick and GMC have made for yourself, we’re looking forward to you dropping by our lot and having a look at the new models sometime soon!
