Impress your friends with your prophetic abilities (the end is almost four months away) by accurately labelling the best-selling brand, best-selling truck, best-selling SUV, best-selling car, best-selling muscle car, best-selling luxury car, and best-selling luxury brand by having a look-see at the forecasts below.
The auto sales figures you see here are year-to-date through August 31/2010.
Toyota Camry: 220,061
Honda Accord: 211,504
Toyota Corolla/Matrix: 188,126

The Camry has been #1 in March, June, July, and August. The Accord was #1 in January, February, April, and May.

Chevrolet Silverado: 235,530
Chevrolet Silverado AND GMC Sierra: 314,668
Month-after-month in 2010, the F-Series has been #1. In 2009, however, the Silverado/Sierra twins combined to be #1, beating the F-Series by nearly 15,000 units.
Best-Selling Overall Automotive Brand
Ford sales have jumped 20.3% so far this year. Chevrolet, as a brand, is up 18.8%. Toyota is in decline and hasn't won a month since March. Chevrolet's only monthly victory came in January. Toyota, #1 in 2009, beat Ford by 110,432 sales last year.
Best-Selling Luxury Cars
BMW 3-Series: 64,450
Mercedes-Benz C-Class: 40,964
Mercedes-Benz E-Class: 39,122
Infiniti G: 38,683
The 3-Series beat the C-Class by almost 40,000 units last year. Mercedes-Benz can take solace in the C-Class's closing of the gap.
Best-Selling Muscle Car
Chevrolet Camaro: 60,185
Ford Mustang: 53,094
Although the 2011 Mustang helped Ford to start clawing its way back into the fight with the Camaro in May, August was the Camaro's month once again.
Best-Selling Luxury SUV/CUV/Crossovers
Lexus RX: 60,476
Cadillac SRX: 32,703
Acura MDX: 29,110
The Lexus RX's dominance surprises no one. But the Cadillac SRX's huge victories - month-after-month - over vehicles like the Mercedes-Benz GLK and Audi Q5 have been a bit of a shock.
Best-Selling Luxury Automotive Brand
Far too close to call, this headline-baiting battle could flip and flop from the time September's sales are released to December's with a couple exchanges for October and November in between. Lexus hasn't won a month since May while Mercedes-Benz continually sits in the #2 slot.
