    Default August GM auto sales.

    The August 2013 auto sales are out and GM is the #1 vehicle seller in the US.

    2013 YTD
    GM
    Chevrolet - 1365544
    GMC - 303254
    Buick - 141880
    Cadillac - 119586

    Total for GM - 1930264

    Ford
    Ford - 1649821
    Lincoln - 53399

    Total for Ford - 1703220

    I am astonished that Chevrolet is 70.7% of GM's sales. I thought Buick would have been higher.

    Now to the truck sales, Ford has a decent lead over GM in total trucks sold so far in 2013.

    Ford F-Series - 499050

    Chevrolet Silverado - 328269
    GMC Sierra - 122232
    Chevrolet Avalanche - 1525
    Cadillac Escalade EXT - 181
    Colorado/Canyon - 105

    Total trucks for GM - 452312

    That's right Ford makes ONLY the F-series when it comes to trucks. I can see why GM is cancelling the Escalade EXT. The new Colorado and Canyon should help GM get decent numbers and get some sales away from the Toyota Tacoma.

    Does Mercury not exist anymore? Interesting numbers for sure. I read an article yesterday saying that auto sales are the highest this year than they have been in the past six years. Good news, I suppose.

    Ford killed Mercury back in 2011. Ford just has Ford and Lincoln.

    IMO, GM should do the same and have only Chevrolet and Cadillac.

    Agreed. I never understood why GMC still exists. Just make a Silverado and then a really nice Silverado.

    There are still a LOT of people out there that think a Sierra is far superior to a Silverado when in fact they are essentially identical besides minor cosmetics and badging. I know I will get a talking to by the GMC folks on this forum about GMC's history and such, but I do feel that ~95% of the GMC folks would buy the Chevrolet equivalent and GM would not have to have as much duplication.

    For 2014 there is the new Silverado High Country. With the High Country, what is the Denali for?

    Nothing wrong with them, but they have to be a drain on GM as far as logistics for carrying all those different cosmetic parts which amounts to nothing more than just cosmetic differences. I could see if there really was a difference between the two trucks other than a grill and wheel well moldings.

    If GM had only one full size pickup, then they might wrestle the sales crown that Ford does nothing but pimp everytime they can. As you can tell, Ford is EXTREMELY proud of that sales title.
