Company press release.

DETROIT – General Motors Co. (NYSE: GM) dealers delivered 212,060 vehicles in the United States in November, up 14 percent versus a year ago and the highest November sales in six years. Retail sales were up 19 percent and fleet sales were down 3 percent.

'November sales were strong at all four of our brands, and demand was robust for everything from cars to crossovers to the industry's newest and best full-size pickups,' said Kurt McNeil, vice president, U.S. sales operations. 'The sheer number of award-winning new models we have helped us grow faster than the industry for the second month in a row.'

GM's product momentum will continue unabated. For example, the all-new 2014 Cadillac CTS, which is building availability, was recently named Motor Trend's Car of the Year, an Automobile Magazine 'All Star' and one of Car and Driver's 10 Best cars.

Cadillac will also launch an all-new Escalade and the ELR in early 2014. In addition, Chevrolet and GMC are launching all-new heavy-duty pickups and large SUVs in the first quarter. Chevrolet also unveiled the Colorado, its new, highly acclaimed midsize pickup, at the Los Angeles International Auto Show. The Colorado goes on sale in the fall of 2014.

November Sales Highlights (vs. 2012)

Chevrolet sales were up 13 percent and retail deliveries were up 20 percent.

Sales of Chevrolet cars increased 19 percent, with Malibu up 41 percent, Volt up 26 percent, Impala up 20 percent and Camaro up 14 percent. Retail deliveries of the Cruze were up 39 percent and Impala more than doubled.

The Chevrolet Cruze, Equinox and Volt had their best November sales ever.

GMC sales were up 20 percent, with the Sierra up 22 percent and the Acadia crossover up 108 percent, which keeps it on track for its best year ever.

    Cadillac sales increased 11 percent and retail sales have grown in each of the past 18 months, driven by the success of the new XTS and ATS.

    'We feel good about the direction of the economy and our own momentum,' McNeil said. 'The economy is creating jobs and household wealth. Energy costs are dropping and credit is available and affordable. All of this bodes well for future growth.'
