General Motors’ November sales rose 14 percent on strong retail demand across its four brands, while the average price of a GM vehicle rose to a record high of $34,896.
GM said its dealers sold 212,060 vehicles overall. Retail deliveries rose 19 percent, while fleet sales fell 3 percent.
All four brands posted double-digit increases, led by GMC’s 20 percent gain. Sales for Chevrolet and Buick both rose 13 percent while Cadillac’s sales grew 11 percent.
Meanwhile, Chrysler Group sales climbed 16 percent to 142,275 in the month, boosted by a strong launch of the 2014 Jeep Cherokee and brisk sales of other SUVs and pickups.
It was Chrysler’s best November since 2007, and its 44th consecutive month of year-over-year sales gains.
Jeep recorded its best November sales ever, up 30 percent to 45,415 units. The mid-sized Cherokee posted 10,169 sales in its first full month on the market. The vehicle launched with minimal fleet sales and sales incentives, Chrysler said.
