TUPELO • A truck carrying eight GMC trucks and SUVs was on its way to the Dossett Big 4 dealership last Wednesday. Before the vehicles could be unloaded, four had already been sold.
At Dwayne Blackmon Chevrolet, the redesigned 2021 Chevrolet Blazer is in high demand, and owner Dwayne Blackmon can’t get midsize SUVS and trucks fast enough. The Blazer saw its best quarter ever, with sales up 45%, General Motors said.
For automobile dealers, 2020 is shaping up to be a pretty good year, especially considering a rough second quarter when the pandemic shut down factories and consumers pulled back on spending. While sales for the year are lower compared to a year ago, most automakers’ third quarter sales improved from the second quarter.
“We’re up; we just wrapped up September, and it was better than last September,” said Rudy Dossett, whose dealership sells Buick, Cadillac and GMC. House
