    Nov. 2 (Bloomberg) -- Daimler AG’s Mercedes-Benz sold more luxury cars than Bayerische Motoren Werke AG in the U.S. last month, bolstered by a new sporty C-Class model.

    Mercedes-Benz’s U.S. deliveries jumped 23 percent to 22,637, while the BMW brand’s sales rose 13 percent to 21,873, according to statements by the carmakers yesterday. BMW, based in Munich, kept the lead for the year with 199,552 vehicles.

    I'm thinking BMW is going to make a big jump when the new 3-Series is in full stride. Right now mercedes is really putting big lease deals on the C Class.

    Not surprising. The only other viable models in the stable (CTS and Escalade) have gone far too long without a refresh.

    Exactly. Let's see where Cadillac is after the XTS and ATS are released.

    Also we have to wait and see how the new Cadillac ATS will do, if it's marketed correctly, it might be a wild card or hidden ace.

    The death of players ranging from small time (STS) to big(ger) time (DTS) can be attributed to some of that. Cadillac is down to the CTS, SRX, and Escalade. With the next couple of years bringing the ATS, new CTS, XTS, updated SRX, new Escalade, and more, just watch their sales.
