2005 Chevrolet Uplander
For the third consecutive year, sales of minivans declined in the United States. The 16% year-over-year drop in 2007 equalled a loss of 155,338 sales during a year in which overall new vehicle sales declined by a little more than 2%, a drop of 407,000 sales. 

The Chevrolet Uplander produced meaningful gains, but GM's total minivan volume shrunk by 13,578 sales, a 15% decline, as GM's minivan market share slid to 9.4%.

The Dodge Caravan continued to be be America's top-selling minivan, although its margin of victory over the second-ranked Honda Odyssey was only slight. The Chrysler Group's market share in the category nevertheless grew to 37.7% from 37.5%.

Overall, minivans accounted for just 5.2% of the new vehicles sold in the United States in 2007, down from 6.0% in 2006. Meanwhile, America's six best-selling SUVs and crossovers accounted for 6.0% of the new vehicles sold in 2007.
