GM's US sales down in Q4, 2019

General Motors Co.'s sales were down 6.3% for the fourth quarter of 2019 and 2.3% for the year, the automaker said Jan. 3.

Detroit-based GM sold 735,909 vehicles during the fourth quarter, with 2.9 million sales in the full year.

Each of the automaker's brands was down year over year in the fourth quarter. The GMC brand had the biggest drop, down 8.5% year over year with 146,880 vehicles sold in the quarter. Chevrolet saw a 6.1% drop in the quarter with 499,404 vehicles sold.

GM said its fourth-quarter North American wholesales were down approximately 25% year over year because of the six-week United Auto Workers strike, which impacted production.

"Our fourth-quarter stocks were leaner than we wanted, but as we get ready to launch our all-new full-size SUVs, we look forward to another solid year in 2020," Kurt McNeil, vice president of GM's U.S. sales operations, said in a news release.

For the full year, the GMC brand was up 1.5% from 2018 with 564,946 vehicles sold. Cadillac saw a 1% year-over-year increase with 156,246 vehicles sold.

GM, which has shifted toward SUVs and pickup trucks, said its 2019 sales included more than 1 million crossovers, up 12.7% from 2018, and more than 1 million full-size pickups.

"We've focused our resources on what our customers want — crossovers and trucks — and that has paid off," McNeil said. "In addition to our industry leading crossover sales, our full-size truck franchise is unmatched. We're pleased with our full-size pickup launch and we look forward to launching our segment-leading, all-new full-size SUVs in 2020."
