Top 20 Best-Selling Cars In America - June 2011

2011 Chevrolet Cruze
For the second month in a row a Chevrolet is the best-selling car in America. Instead of the Malibu (down one spot to #2 in June), the Chevrolet Cruze took over as the most popular car in the USA. Include 106 leftover Cobalts in the Cruze's total and Chevrolet's compact car sales jumped 147% last month. Year-over-year, the Malibu was up 14.6% in June 2011. There were two other Chevrolets in America's June list of 20 best-selling cars: the Impala (up 13%) and the Camaro (up 12.5%). 

To talk up Chevrolet, however, is to ignore the usual suspects. Toyota Camry sales fell 24.8%, Honda Accord sales dropped 36.1%, Corolla/Matrix sales slid 13.7%, and Civic sales plunged 34% even as a new generation should be kickstarting growth. Yep, you can still blame all this on poor dealer supply stemming from March's earthquake/tsunami/nuclear disaster.

There are four Korean cars in the Top 20, none higher than sixth spot. There are two German cars; the BMW 3-Series and still-surging Volkswagen Jetta. The remaining 14 are evenly split between American and Japanese brands. June's 20 best-selling cars in America are in the table below.

    Congrats Chevy even if the joy is fleeting.

  2. What if the joy isn't fleeting? This "supply" problem could go on or since it's at the same time as GM/Ford/Chrysler improvements, this domestic turn-a-round could be here to stay for a while.

  3. GM improvements? Like the Cruze steering wheel coming off in your hands?

    In the very short time since its release, it's already had two recalls. Well, maybe that IS an improvement for Chevy.

  4. With Americans tendency to skimp on maintenance just wait for those Turbo engine problems to start to crop-up on the Cruise...
