Chevy Tahoe and Suburban sales keep climbing ever higher. Will the competition ever catch up? Ford will soon introduce the all-new 2018 Expedition and the 2018 Lincoln Navigator. This will put more pressure of the full-size SUVs from GM, but GM is updating their SUVs with a 10-speed automatic transmission for 2018. Competition provides the consumer with more choice and better product.
Case in point – Nissan is doing very well with the redesigned 2017 Armada. It’s a very comfortable and powerful SUV, and the consumers are responding.
The Toyota Sequoia is getting a refresh and new driver-assist technologies for 2018, and this should keep the sales steady.
