The GM Authority Take
U.S. GMC sales increased in a healthy manner during the second quarter, with the results representing a stark contrast with the 4.39 percent decline in sales during the first quarter. All GMC models with the exception of the Sierra saw sales increase during Q2 2019 over Q2 2018, which marks a stark contrast between the performance of the brand’s best-selling vehicle compared to the rest of the models.
GMC Sierra 1500 sales fell 4.7 percent to 42,911 units. According to GM, Sierra 1500 sales were impacted by the limited availability of Regular and Double Cab models, which are the most affordable models in the light-duty Sierra range. The low availability was caused by the planned launch cadence of the all-new 2019 Sierra models. Meanwhile, sales of the GMC Sierra 1500 Crew Cab – the model that was widely available during the second quarter of 2019, increased by 12 percent year-over-year, demonstrating that consumers are responding well to the all-new pickup truck, when it’s available.
In addition, sales of the Sierra HD decreased 2.9 percent to 13,946 units. The decline is attributed to the low availability of the all-new 2020 GMC Sierra HD, which began arriving at dealers during the second half of June. The inventory should increase during the third and fourth quarters, which should cause sales volume to improve. It’s also worth noting that GM is initially producing Crew Cab versions of the Sierra HD, similar to the launch cadence of the 1500 model. This circumstance could also negatively impact the availability of more affordable models.
Meanwhile, we can’t go without noting the remarkable 41 percent jump in GMC Acadia sales. Through the first six months of 2019, the midsize crossover has replaced the Terrain as the second best-selling GMC model after the Sierra line. The 2020 Acadia refresh is currently undergoing launch to take full advantage of the increasing demand for crossover utility vehicles.
