Products Among America's 30 Best-Selling Autos In December
Owning 5.5% of the U.S. auto market in December 2013, the Ford F-Series topped 70,000 units for the third time this year and 60,000 units for the eighth consecutive month. 

Most assuredly, the F-Series was America's best-selling vehicle in December. Combined, the second-ranked Chevrolet Silverado and third-ranked Ram P/U only outsold the F-Series by 1406 units.

According to the Automotive News Data Center, December was a month of little growth in the U.S. auto industry as total sales rose by just 2602 units.

Passenger cars were the drag, falling 3.5%. You'll find symptoms of that underlying issue at Toyota, where America's most popular car, the Camry, fell 5% in December. 

Honda's Civic, America's leading small car, fell 12% in December, and sales of the second and fourth-best-selling cars in December - the Toyota Corolla and Chevrolet Cruze - were down 9% and 14%, respectively.

In total, 13 of the 30 best-selling cars in America in December were passenger cars, down from 15 in December 2012 and 15 one month ago.

GCBC has already published rankings for 36 different brands and 14 different trucks and 20 SUVs and crossovers and 20 passenger cars, links for which you'll find at the bottom of this post.
