The Ford Authority Take

The Expedition’s November sales performance places it in fourth place in its segment in terms of cumulative sales volume. The SUV also recorded the second-highest decrease in overall sales volume, right behind the GMC Yukon.

The segment was led by the Chevrolet Tahoe in first (see Chevy Tahoe sales), Chevrolet Suburban in second (see Chevy Suburban sales), and the GMC Yukon and Yukon XL in third (see GMC Yukon sales and GMC Yukon XL sales). GM’s Chevrolet and GMC entrants effectively ran away from all other manufacturers with roughly 70 percent share of the segment.

We attribute Ford’s lackluster performance in the segment to the ongoing launch process of the all-new 2018 Expedition, which has resulted in low inventory levels at dealers. Checks performed by Ford Authority, however, show that inventory levels are rising.

Fourth place went to the Nissan Armada, whose sales jumped 89 percent, which we suspect is mostly caused by increased sales to daily rental fleets. Fifth (and last) place went to the Toyota Sequoia.
