Top 20 Best-Selling Cars In America - June 2013

2014 Chevrolet Cruze diesel
Although Ford managed to claim the top spot on the pickup truck and SUV leaderboard in June 2013, its best-selling car, the Ford Fusion, sold less often this June than last and consequently fell to seventh spot on this list of America's 20 best-selling cars. The Fusion ranked fifth a month ago and sixth a year ago.

Top spot once again belonged to the Toyota Camry, which grew its year-to-date lead over the Honda Accord by 4193 units. With half of 2013 complete, the Camry is now nearly 21,000 units ahead of the Accord. It's a surmountable lead, but one that's unlikely to be surmounted.


Tops among small cars and Detroit passenger car nameplates - and second overall in June - was the surging Chevrolet Cruze. The Cruze pipped its nearest rival, the Honda Civic, by 3147 units. Through six months, the Toyota Corolla (with Matrix in tow) leads the Civic by just 268 sales. The Corolla, the second of three Toyotas on the list, held steady in sixth spot. 

The other Toyota? That'd be the Prius, which landed in 14th spot. Factor in the Prius C and Prius V, and the Prius Family would fall in just ahead of the Hyundai Sonata with 21,079 sales.


Three German nameplates, including the 19th and 20th-ranked Volkswagen Passat and BMW 3-Series, landed in the top 20 this month. Jetta sedan sales were up 12% to 12,960 in June; SportWagen sales slid 8% to 1853.

Historical monthly and yearly sales figures for any of these models can always be accessed through the dropdown menu at GCBC's Sales Stats page, and for those not viewing the mobile version of this site, near the top right of this page, as well. GCBC has already published rankings for dozens of different brands and 14 different trucks and 20 SUVs and crossovers. This list is responsible for displaying the 20 best-selling cars in America from June 2013.

  1. Did GM give away Chevy Cruze to rental fleets?

  2. It would seem so. Maybe they will continue that strategy through the end of the year to see if they can use the title of best-selling compact car in their ads next year. I highly doubt that lots of consumers fell in love with the Cruze all of a sudden after the same design has been out for a few years.

Because people trust in it funny thing is so many people will not buy gm cars anymore and there still holding there own not saying I disagree with people cuz gm did mess up and for a long time but there one of two american companies left and ill support them till either they die or I die.
