Same with zb’s. Sitting regoed and unsold everywhere. The official sales figures are a crockIn NZ according to the NZAA the Colorado is the 4th best selling ute after the Ford Ranger, Toyota Hilux and Mitsubishi Triton, all four were in the top 10 in terms of new registrations in 2018. I didn't have the exact figure for Colorado's but it has to be between 3695 and 4720 which was the number of CX5's and Triton's registered during the year. But registrations don't necessarily mean actual sales, I saw a lot of registered utes sitting idle on sales yards while I was test driving cars.
Does Hyundai make a ute?
Hyundai did show off a Santa Cruz ute a couple of years ago and I thought it was due for release in the USA in the next year or so. I am not sure about it coming to Australia though.No Hyaundai utes AFAIK. What is selling over here are "SUV"s and Rangers. With the Outlander being seen everywhere, same with Ranger. Then Hyaundai in its various forms. Also the cheaper again Chinese utes are really starting to emerge, seeing a fair few of them everyday.
I'm only guessing but GMH sales are really poor here at the present and I believe it is primarily because of what they are offering, which is Deawoo and other rebadged stuff that just plainly has had a bad name for ever and if the quality improves, it takes Tasmanian's a long time to trust the brand again. Hence why I wonder if GMH will be too little too late. I actually wonder if we will lose GM in Launceston and the dealership will focus on better sellers, that being Jap and Korean imports.
