October 2018 brings some surprising sales results to the full-size SUV market. General Motors usually leads this category with the Tahoe and Suburban, but GM is reporting sales on a quarterly basis so latest numbers will be available in early January 2019.
In the absence of GM data, the Dodge Durango is sitting on top of the sales list with a 5% improvement over October 2017. Ford Expedition is in second place, but the all-new 2018 model is still improving sales in a big way.
The Nissan Armada lost a significant percentage of sales in October, and it’s down -4.4% for the year. By contrast, the Infiniti QX80 more than doubled its sales. The QX80 sales are approaching Armada numbers.
