The GM Authority Take
Chevrolet sales in the United States decreased once again in the second quarter of 2019, with the brand seeing decreases in sales volume in the past four consecutive quarters in its home market. This negative trend is due to the dramatic decrease in the demand for sedans in the American market and limited availability of the high-volume versions of the all-new 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 as part of GM’s strategy to first launch the truck in more costly higher-trim versions. Another factor that worked against the Bow Tie brand was the launch of its all-new Silverado HD, which was available in limited quantities during the second quarter. All three factors made Chevrolet the only GM brand to report a decrease in sales volumes during the quarter.
In contrast, Chevrolet’s range of utilities registered a fairly positive quarter, with the Trax being the only exception. Equinox had a particularly good quarter, recording record sales of 85,657 units that increased its segment share from 9 to 12 percent year-over-year. Meanwhile, sales of Tahoe, Suburban and Traverse also increased healthily. In fact, the Traverse achieved record second-quarter sales volumes. Meanwhile, availability of the all-new Blazer began to increase.
U.S. Chevrolet sales are expected to improve in the second half of the year thanks to greater availability of the high-volume versions of the new Silverado 1500 and increased availability of the new 2020 Silverado HD.
