  • Best January ever for Outback and Forester
  • 35 consecutive months of more than 10,000 Outbacks sold
  • 42 consecutive months of more than 10,000 Foresters sold

Cherry Hill, N.J. -  Subaru of America, Inc. today reported 43,879 vehicle sales for January 2017, a 6.8 percent increase over January 2016, and the best January in the history of the company. These results continue the company’s sales momentum from 2016 where Subaru achieved eight consecutive years of record sales and exceeded 615,000 annual sales – a first in company history.  

January marked the 35th consecutive month of 40,000+ vehicle sales for the company. Outback and Forester sales were notably strong as each model achieved its best January ever. Impreza sales for January 2017 increased 16.5 percent over the same month in 2016. Crosstrek also enjoyed gains over January 2016. In January, Impreza, Legacy and WRX each won Kelley Blue Book 2017 Best Resale Value Awards in their respective categories for a second year in a row. WRX also placed in the Best Resale Value Top 10 for the second consecutive year.
 
“We have to thank our dedicated retailers who delivered a wonderful start to 2017 with our best January sales ever and our 62nd consecutive month of yearly, month-over-month sales increases,” said Thomas J. Doll, president and chief operating officer.
 
“With the all-new Impreza arriving at retailers and already selling very well prior to the launch of its advertising campaign in mid-February, we expect an excellent start to the year.” said Jeff Walters, senior vice president of sales.

      Subaru trademarks "Evoltis" for First Hybrid
      Subarus has filed with the US Patent and Trademark office for the auto name Evoltis. This will be their first Hybrid based on the Toyota Prius powertrain. Many are hoping that unlike Toyota, Subaru will do their due diligence to build it as an AWD auto.

      There's a war going on between Cadillac and Lincoln. With the new Navigator, Lincoln has a very compelling alternative to Cadillac's aging Escalade. But Cadillac is fighting back by dumping a bunch of cash on the hood.
      Bloomberg obtained a memo sent to Cadillac dealers that announces a new promotion where current lease customers of 2016 Escalades are being offered a $10,000 discount on a new Escalade. Owners of 2016 Escalades have to make do with a $7,500 discount. The promotion runs until the end of May. GM Spokesman Jim Cain confirmed the promotion to Bloomberg.
      This isn't the first time Cadillac has put a huge amount of money onto the hood of the Escalade. Back in November, Cadillac was offering owners of Lincoln models from 1999 to the current model year a $5,000 discount on an Escalade.
      Cadillac still holds a significant edge over the Navigator in terms of sales - 8,111 Escalades vs. 4,062 Navigators through March. But Lincoln is gaining ground with Navigators only sitting on dealer lots 10 days on average. 
      “GM is trying to keep Escalade buyers out of Navigators, for sure. You’ve got a fresh Navigator and you’ve got an Escalade that is not new and is starting to age,” said Jeff Schuster, an analyst at LMC Automotive.
      “This is a particular battle that GM doesn’t want to lose ground in. It speaks to the importance of the Escalade.”
