Chevrolet's Impala Ranked 38th In New Vehicle
Sales In May 2013 As YOY Volume Fell 32%.
2350 New-Gen Impalas Were Sold In May.
Fully 5% of the new vehicles sold in the United States in May 2013 were Ford F-Series pickup trucks. Together, the F-Series and America's next 19-best-selling nameplates were responsible for 40.8% of the  new vehicles sold in the U.S. in May, up from 40.7% in April and 40.3% a year ago.

The F-Series was one of five trucks in the top 30. Together, those five trucks accounted for more than twelve out of every 100 new vehicle sales. With the Grand Caravan out of the top 30 (in the 31st spot) there was but one minivan, the 28th-ranked Honda Odyssey. With 15 cars in the top 30, this left room for nine SUVs and crossovers. With 181,268 sales between them, these nine utility vehicles attracted 12.6% of the new vehicle buyers in America in May.

Apart from order changes, the 28 top lines of this list appears consistent with April's edition. The Kia Soul was, however, dropped from the top 30 and its place was taken by the 29th-ranked Ford Edge. Soul sales improved 12.6% in May; it was America's 36th-best-selling vehicle, behind the Grand Caravan, Nissan Sentra, Subaru Outback, Honda Pilot, and Toyota Sienna.
