June 2012 Minivan Sales And Truck Sales In America


1993 Toyota Previa
Not A Sienna: The 1993 Toyota Previa

47,821 new minivans were purchased or leased in the United States in June 2012. 42% of those minivans were Chrysler products: Town & Countrys and Grand Caravans. Neither the Chrysler nor the Dodge were America’s best-selling minivan in June, though the Grand Caravan is the year-to-date leader. 

The Honda Odyssey posted a 56% year-over-year gain, taking the Honda’s June total up to a class-leading 11,275, 374 units ahead of the Dodge Grand Caravan; 547 ahead of the Toyota Sienna. 24% of the minivans sold in America in June 2012 were Honda Odysseys. The Nissan Quest, Kia Sedona, Volkswagen Routan, and Mazda 5 combined to own 12% of the market, leaving 22% of the market for the Toyota Sienna.

Meanwhile, Toyota’s two trucks accounted for 13% of the pickups sold in the United States in June 2012. That number seems low in comparison to the market share numbers achieved by FoMoCo, General Motors, and Ram, but Toyota’s a leader among non-domestics. Nissan owned 5% of the U.S. truck market in June and Honda less than 1%. 

America’s best-selling truck, the Ford F-Series, outsold the Cadillac Escalade, Chevrolet Avalanche, Chevrolet Colorado, Dodge Dakota, Ford Ranger, GMC Canyon, GMC Sierra, Honda Ridgeline, Nissan Frontier, Nissan Titan, Suzuki Equator, and the two Toyota trucks combined in June. With 4827 units to spare.
