Chevrolet, Buick, GMC and Cadillac dealers in the U.S. reported sales of 138,849, up a combined 32 percent compared to February 2009. These results were driven by the continued strong growth of new GM crossovers and passenger cars.
GM’s Chevrolet, Buick, GMC and Cadillac brands continue to build momentum in the marketplace. Retail sales for GM’s four brands were up 7 percent for the month, driven by strong consumer demand for GM’s crossovers.
