The Jeep Wrangler Was America's
31st-Best-Selling Vehicle In February 2013
Six General Motors vehicles. Five Fords and five Toyotas. Three Dodges; one Chrysler. Three Hondas. Two Nissans. Two Hyundais; one Kia. One Volkswagen. One Mazda. 

There you have the manufacturers which contributed to this list of America's 30 best-selling vehicles in February 2013.

The 20 nameplates at the top of the heap accounted for 40.6% of the overall new vehicle market. The three podium-placing vehicles - Ford F-Series; Chevrolet Silverado; Toyota Camry - were responsible for more than one in ten new vehicle sales in February. 

Overall, the auto industry posted collective year-over-year gains of just 3.7%, some way down from January's 14% improvement. But even shortened February is a more important month to the industry than cold January - Americans registered 149,000 more new vehicles last month than in the month before.


Knocked off the top 30 perch they held in January were the Nissan Sentra, Ford Edge, Dodge Avenger, and Jeep Grand Cherokee. In their place, February's best sellers included the Dodge Charger, Dodge Grand Caravan, Chrysler 200, and Mazda 3.
