We're discussing nameplates, right? So Chevy and GMC are different nameplates. Thus separated.
Way to go Jeep Wrangler! (Now we just need to work on them waving.)
The biggest surprise here is the continued success of the Escape. We have several at work (hybrids) and while I like them, they are nothing special. Interior materials are on the lower end of the scale. They have proven to be reliable which is always a plus, but what do they offer that the competition doesn't? All I can think of is that they look and feel a lot like a baby old school SUV. And maybe that is something that buyers like... Other items...I believe that if I had hauling needs, inclement weather ability (the pickups had no problem with most of the massive flooding from Irene) and could only afford one vehicle, I'd probably own a pickup, too. So I am not at all surprised at the sales numbers. I am curious as to how many miles a year end up on those trucks though. 25K a year means awfully big gas bills.
It's interesting that only 25 nameplates (470,567 by my math) comprise nearly 50% of all vehicle sales. And there's not a single 'enthusiast' vehicle among them.
