Top 30 Best-Selling Vehicles In America - May 2015

2012 Toyota Tacoma extended cab
America's 20 best-selling vehicles accounted for 40% of the new vehicles sold in the United States in May 2015. The top 30 brought in just over half of the U.S. auto industry's May volume.

The country's most popular vehicle, Ford's F-Series, was once again outsold by its twin rivals from General Motors, the Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra. Although the GM twins haven't outsold the (now somewhat supply constrained) Ford F-Series in a calendar year since 2009, they're 4497 sales ahead of the Ford heading into June.

The F-Series, Silverado, and Sierra are three of the five trucks present on this list of America's 30 best-selling vehicles in May 2015. Ram's truck line is in a race with the Toyota Camry for third spot. The Camry finished ahead of the Ram in May but trails FCA's truck by 976 sales year-to-date. 

The other truck in the May's top 30 is the 26th-ranked Toyota Tacoma. Ever since GM's new Colorado and Canyon arrived, Tacoma sales have been booming. May represented the third consecutive month in which the small/midsize truck leader topped the 15K mark and the fifth consecutive month in which the Tacoma has been a member of this list.

We've already published May lists for the 20 best-selling cars, 20 best-selling SUVs and crossovers, and complete figures for every pickup truck, links to which you'll find below. Throwing all those vehicles into one group results in this list of the 30 best-selling vehicles overall. We end up with five pickup trucks, not a single minivan, 14 cars, and 11 utility vehicles.

Historical monthly and yearly sales figures for any of these top-selling vehicles 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.
