For the third consecutive year, Buick set a new global sales record on sales of more than 1.2 million vehicles.
Last year’s record was 1,170,115 total vehicles, which was surpassed in mid-December thanks to record sales in China and strong crossover performances in the United States.
In the US, crossover sales increased by 3% across the industry. A whopping 40% of all new vehicles sold in the country are crossovers. The automaker has been tapping into that expanding market with capable vehicles like the Encore and Enclave, which together accounted for 60% of the Buick’s annual sales in the US. In fact, the Encore has been setting record sales for the last 23 straight months.
Sales are expected to continue rising throughout 2016 at Crawford Buick GMC. We anticipate the arrival of the Cascada convertible and the new 2017 LaCrosse, as well as the all-new Envision compact crossover that has been all the rage in China.
