DETROIT (AP) — General Motors says its U.S. sales rose 9.4 percent last month, making it the best July since 2007.

The increase was led by redesigned truck-based SUVs and came despite GM's recall crisis that began in February.

Sales of the redesigned Cadillac Escalade SUV more than doubled while Chevrolet Tahoe sales rose 52 percent. The Buick Encore small SUV posted a 28 percent increase. GM says sales are up because people are feeling better about the economy.

The company sold 256,160 vehicles for the month.

GM has recalled nearly 30 million vehicles this year but says it is near the end of a safety review.

The Edmunds.com website predicts that total U.S. auto sales rose 11.1 percent last month for the best July since 2006. All automakers report sales on Friday.
