GM Canada August Sales

(August 2014 had 26 selling days and August 2013 had 27 selling days; Data is not adjusted for the difference in selling days)

OSHAWA, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - Sept. 3, 2014) - Chevrolet, Buick, GMC and Cadillac dealers delivered 22,111 vehicles in August 2014, an increase of 5 per cent from August 2013.

"GM Canada is building momentum as we move into the Fall, driven by strong customer demand for our Chevrolet, Buick, GMC and Cadillac cars, SUVs and trucks," said John Roth, vice president, sales, service and marketing. "With the launch of the new Cadillac ATS Coupe and our all new mid-size trucks, the Chevrolet Colorado and GMC Canyon later this year, we anticipate this growth will continue as we align our products to best suit the needs of our customers."

This fall, GM will complete the launch of a complete portfolio of new trucks - HD, light-duty and mid-size pickups. No one offers customers more choices in trucks than Chevrolet and GMC - a lineup that offers the broadest range of capabilities in the industry, giving truck customers more choices to find the vehicle that meets their professional, personal and lifestyle needs.
