Large Car Sales In America - July 2015 YTD

2015 Chrysler 300C rear
It's a well-known story. Consumers across America are turning away from cars and toward SUVs and crossovers. That means car sales are falling; the car category's share of the overall market is decreasing.

And yet in July, compact car sales increased and midsize car sales improved.

Full-size, volume brand cars, on the other hand, took a 14% dive. A loss of 6388 sales was tempered only by modest increases from the two FCA cars – the Chrysler 300 and Dodge Charger – and a miniscule increase from the low-volume Chevrolet SS.

In fact, sales of the 300 and SS are still declining on year-to-date terms. The Charger's 2% year-to-date increase translates to just 1276 extra sales compared with the first 58% of 2014. The best-selling Chevrolet Impala? July volume dropped by 15%; year-to-date sales are down 25%, a 21,908-unit decrease.
