New SRX -- Demand exceeding supply?


Recommended Posts

[article]

The Wall Street Journal reported, quoting Vice Chairman Bob Lutz. GM had been cautious as it planned production, and its conversations with dealers earlier in the year had led the company to expect demand to be softer than it actually was, the report said. The newspaper quoted a Wisconsin dealer as saying that the hot models are the Cadillac SRX, Chevrolet Equinox, Buick LaCrosse and Chevrolet Camaro.

Sounds like good news for the newly redesigned Cadillac SRX. The new model sales are exceeding supplies, so GM may have to crank up production.

This note from an email from Moritz Cadillac in North Arlington (Texas):

We have sold every one of our SRX in inventory very quickly and have many more customers reserving a vehicle out of our inbound allocation. Moritz Cadillac has 30 SRX from which to choose, so now is a great time to select the perfect vehicle for you today!

It's not hard to see why this crossover is so hot as it is absolutely gorgeous and the third party reviews have been outstanding.

Motor Trend had the following to say about the vehicle:

"Cadillac has matched the comfort and quietness of the Lexus without dishing in any of the RX's numbing isolation. Whereas the Lexus comes off as a very well-appointed people mover, the Cadillac is awash in luxury and character."

And this from Jalopnik.com:

"The new SRX is good, really good. Lexus RX350 beating good. For a segment which has traditionally isolated the driver in a cocoon of leather and glass and over-damping, the SRX actually makes driving part of the equation."

Please visit MoritzCadillac.com to reserve your SRX today !!

GM dealers clamor for more vehiclesInterest in new models may translate into higher sales; Ford, Chrysler demand up too

Scott Burgess / The Detroit News

General Motors Co. dealers want the automaker to ship as many as four times the number of vehicles the company initially planned to build in October, top executives said Thursday.

In an internal report, obtained by The Detroit News, GM officials were surprised to find dealers wanted far greater numbers than the company had projected. There was higher interest in vehicles such as the Chevrolet Equinox, Buick LaCrosse and GMC Terrain. GM, for example, projected building 8,000 Chevrolet Equinoxes but dealers wanted nearly 30,000. Typically, automaker projections and dealership demand, outlined monthly in what's known as a "consensus" report, track more closely together. The reports are used to measure dealer appetite for specific models and to adjust production.
