The Chevrolet Malibu Was America's 
31st-Best-Selling Vehicle In December 2012 
But Rose To 14th In January 2013
15 of America's 30 best-selling vehicles in January 2013 hailed from Detroit, up from 13 a month earlier. This includes twelve of the top 20, up from eleven in December, and five of the top ten, up from four.

The leader, Ford's F-Series, owned a (very relatively) small 4.5% of the overall new vehicle market, down from 5.1% in December. This, paired with the increases reported by General Motors, led to GM's full-size pickup twins, the Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra, outselling the F-Series for the second consecutive month. This time, the Silverado and Sierra beat the F-Series by 1450 units, a substantially bigger victory than they scored in December, when Ford sold 622 fewer full-size trucks than GM.


America's best-selling car, the Toyota Camry, was not threatened by any rival in January 2013. The Honda Accord recorded a 75% year-over-year improvement, but that figure is skewed by the Accord's 16th-place finish a year ago, when only 13,659 were sold. At that point, January 2012 was the Accord's worst sales month in a year, and American Honda hasn't sold fewer than 20,000 since then.
