The Ford Authority Take

The Expedition’s October sales performance places it in fourth (or second-to-last) place in its segment in terms of sales volume. We attribute the circumstance to the ongoing launch process of the all-new 2018 model, which has resulted in low inventory levels at dealers. However, inventory levels appear to be building, according to checks performed by Ford Authority.

In October, the segment was led by the Chevrolet Tahoe and Suburban in first place (see Chevy Tahoe sales and Chevy Suburban sales) as well as the GMC Yukon and Yukon XL in second (see GMC Yukon sales and GMC Yukon XL sales). GM’s Chevrolet and GMC entrants ran away with a 77 percent share of the segment.

Third place went to the Nissan Armada, which showed an impressive 100 percent growth in sales volume growth during the month. The Expedition came in fourth place, while the Toyota Sequoia came in fifth.
