Top 10 Best-Selling Cars In America - 2005 Year End

2005 Ford Mustang
With 160,975 sales, the Ford Mustang was America's 11th-best-selling car in 2005, 16,907 sales ahead of the Chrysler 300; 27,235 sales ahead of the Chrysler PT Cruiser.

Unfortunately, the Mustang finished the year outside the top ten, directly behind two declining Fords, in fact. 

The Toyota Camry was once again America's best-selling car in 2005. Spreading the gap over the second-ranked Honda Accord to 62,410 units thanks to a 1.1% year-over-year increase and the Accord's 4.5% drop.

Chevrolets grabbed the sixth, seventh, and eighth spot. 2005 was the first full year for the Cobalt nameplate. In addition to the 212,667 Cobalts sold by Chevrolet, General Motors also sold 18,960 Cavaliers. Combined, the Chevrolet compacts managed 231,627 sales. Indeed, GM also sold 25,114 Pontiac Sunfires in 2005. 

22.4% of the new passenger cars sold in the United States in 2005 were GM products, down from 24.2% in 2004 as GM car sales fell and the market's desire for cars increased. Cars accounted for 46.8% of the new vehicle market in 2005, up from 45.8% in 2004 as car sales grew from 7.74 million units to 7.96 million units, a 2.9% increase.
