Tahoe takes off while full-size SUVs fall flat in February
While nearly every other manufacturer suffered a decline in full-size SUV sales during the month of February (Ford alone was off 21.4 percent), Chevy sold 15,431 Tahoes, a 42-percent improvement over last year. That helped GM post a sales decline of only 2.1 percent in the full-size SUV market, which was by far the best performance of the bunch.
The Tahoe’s upward sales trend in this shrinking segment translates directly into a bigger share of the full-size SUV market for GM. Despite the shrinkage, the mega-ute market will not disappear all together, and it looks as if GM is positioning itself to own whatever’s left in the end.
