January 2013 U.S. Vehicle Sales Rankings - Top 247 Best-Selling Vehicles In America - Every Vehicle Ranked

2013 Mazda CX-5 soul red
The CX-5 Was Responsible For A Quarter
Of Mazda's U.S. Volume In January
In January 2012, no American car buyer had yet driven home in a new Ford C-Max, Mazda CX-5, Cadillac ATS, Acura ILX, or more than a dozen other vehicles which Americans did take home in January 2013. Yes, 2013 is here, and gone are the Ford Ranger, Dodge Nitro, Mazda RX-8, and Volvo S40, among others.

No all-new model plays a dramatic role at the top of this list of the 247 vehicles sold in America in January. That said, the Toyota Prius family has been propelled forward by the addition of the Prius C and Prius Plug-In, two cars which weren't on sale at this time last year but accounted for 23% of total Prius volume in January. Without them, the Prius would drop from 15th to 21st, just ahead of the Hyundai Elantra. Together, the Prius and Prius V ranked 18th last January.

As for those cars which weren't on sale a year ago, the CX-5 ranked 61st in January; the ATS 92nd; the C-Max 95th; and the ILX 131st. Other high-ranked new cars include the Dodge Dart in 46th, the 93rd-ranked Subaru XV Crosstrek, the 124th-ranked Cadillac XTS, and the 107th-ranked Chevrolet Spark. The BMW X1, Buick Encore, Infiniti JX35, Subaru BRZ, and Scion FR-S weren't present a year ago, either.

But again, the dominant players from last year are the dominant players at the beginning of 2013. Ford F-Series sales jumped 22% in January in a market which rose 14%. The Chevrolet Silverado, Honda Accord, Toyota Corolla, Ford Fusion, Ram Pickup, and Ford Escape - all top ten players - also posted above-average year-over-year gains. The worst year-over-year declines reported by cars which are still actively marketed were published earlier todayCancelled cars like the Buick Lucerne, Cadillac DTS, Dodge Caliber, Hyundai Veracruz, and Mitsubishi Endeavor naturally fared poorly.

Jaguar Was Responsible For 20% Of
JLR Volume In January; The XF
Brought In Half Of Jaguar Volume
Although January always represents 8% of a calendar year, but it is typically the lowest volume U.S. sales month. January accounted for 6% of the new vehicle market in 2011 and again in 2012. Auto sales in March, May, and December accounted for 28% of last year's total volume. So while you can feel 99% certain that the Ford F-Series will end 2013 as America's best-selling vehicle, just as it began 2013, much of the order is completely subject to change. These January results mean plenty in terms of volume; not so much in terms of rankings.

The All Vehicle Rankings table is now sortable. This means, for example, that you can see automobiles listed by their year-over-year change in ascending or descending fashion. Or you can click the Vehicle column header to sort vehicles alphabetically. 

Keep in mind, italicized unranked lines are nothing more than available breakdowns, already included in the model's total, not in addition to the model's total. These lines will often be separated from their overarching vehicle line (the Golf R and GTI from the overall Golf, for instance) when you sort certain columns. Refresh the page in order to return to the original order or sort the Rank column at the far left.

You can always find historical monthly and yearly sales figures for any model by selecting a make and model at GCBC's Sales Stats home. Not surprisingly, our Best Sellers page makes it possible for you to select specific monthly or yearly best seller lists. Segment breakdowns are expected to begin tomorrow.

All 247 nameplates sold in the United States in January 2013 have been ranked for your viewing pleasure in the table below. Don't try to take in too much information at one time.

Italicized unranked lines are nothing more than available breakdowns, already included in the model's total, not in addition to the model's total. Sales data for brands such as Aston Martin, Ferrari, Lamborghini, Lotus, Rolls-Royce etc. are unfortunately not broken down by model. ANDC estimates say sales for those brands in January 2013 were 69, 162, 46, 22, and 38 respectively. HybridCars.com estimates that Tesla Model S sales totalled 1000 units. Total Maserati and Bentley volume is reported, but not by specific models.

  1. WOW...I am always amazed at you are able to pull together all the data for this report so quickly. Great Work!

    I see that Ford is taking their time reporting a break down of the C-Max/Fusion Hybrid, C-Max/Fusion Energi and Focus Electric sales. Along with Toyota holding out with the Camry Hybrid sales.

    We know the C-Max beat the Prius v again, but don't know how many sales were for the C-Max Energi. We also know the Fusion Hybrid sold about 3200, but curious what Camry Hybrid sales for Jan were.

    So for 2013, since there are many more hybrid/plug in models, will we see a separate report just for those models. For a more concise look at how the hybrid, plug-in hybrid and electric vehicles compare with one another.

  2. Of course it would be nice to have all these numbers directly from the manufacturer. But these are just some of the missing figures. A 3-Series breakdown would be wonderful, for example, and an F-Series/Silverado/Sierra/Ram breakdown best of all. They keep such numbers under wraps, and they must have their reasons. But one wonders why Toyota offers detailed numbers in Canada and not in the U.S., why VW Canada stopped offering the same level of detail that VW USA does, and why Porsche Canada now reports the same way as Porsche USA does - they used to offer a complete and very specific breakdown. Why do some manufacturers want to release the info, even when sales are down, and others decide not to, even when sales are up?
