General Motors has reported August 2014 sales of pickups and large SUVs, like the Silverado, Sierra, Tahoe, Yukon, and Escalade, are up nearly 18% over August 2013.


The company also announced that it has received nearly 28,000 orders for the new 2015 Chevrolet Colorado and 14,000 orders for the 2015 GMC Canyon. Dealer demand for the new mid-size pickups is stronger than the company had anticipated.

  • Chevrolet Tahoe/Suburban & GMC Yukon & Yukon XL sales up 38%
  • Chevy Silverado up 13%
  • GMC Sierra sales up 10%
  • Cadillac Escalade deliveries up 64%
  • Chevrolet Express van up 23%
  • Buick Encore sales up 13%
  • Chevrolet Traverse up 11%
  • GMC Acadia up 5%

The average transaction price for a new General Motors vehicle in the month of August was $33,750, up nearly $2,900 over August of 2013.

I did my part to increase GMC Sierra sales in August. I purchased a new GMC Sierra SLE Regular Cab Long Bed 4WD Z71.


My new truck is Fire Red with Jet Black cloth seat trim and equipped as follows:


GVWR, 7000 lbs. (3175 kg)


3.42 rear axle ratio


5.3L EcoTec3 V8 engine


Preferred Package


Tires, 20" P275/55R20 all-terrain, blackwall

(all-terrain must be meant as a joke by GM – if you could see these tires they look like summer treads.)


20" ultra-bright machined aluminum wheels


6” Chrome rectangular, assist steps


Snow Plow Prep Package


Bed liner, drop in


Off-Road Suspension Package


Trailering Package


Total Discount: $7,000.00. I am very happy with my new GMC. So far so good.


Had to take it back for the transfer case recall about a week after purchase – LOL. Some things never change.
