Top 20 Worst-Selling Vehicles In America - October 2014

2015 Mercedes-Benz CLS
Model year changeovers had an impact on a large number of vehicles on sale in the United States in October 2014, enhancing the sales figures of some, and dragging down the totals achieved by others. 


U.S. Vehicle Sales Rankings By Model - October 2014 YTD


Mercedes-Benz, which typically sells more than 680 CLS-Class sedans per month in the United States, sold just 33 in October. 

Porsche Cayenne volume tumbled to just 712 units, a 57% decline, as supply dried up and as some buyers were surely more interested in the Macan, a vehicle reviewed by GCBC last weekend.

In other cases, some of America's worst-selling vehicles are expired models like the Acura TSX and TL, two sedans replaced by the hot-selling TLX. TLX sales in October 2014 were up 95% compared with the TL and TSX's total from a year ago.

You can always select a make and model at GCBC's Sales Stats page to find historical monthly and yearly sales figures from both Canada and the United States. Pertinent links are clickable at the bottom of this post, but you can also find related links at the Best Sellers page.
