From an auto-selling perspective, August 2015 was one day shorter than August 2014 and missing Labour Day sales that helped boost August totals in the three previous years. As a result, the total volume reported by the industry was actually down compared with August 2014, even though Americans were buying and leasing more new vehicles per day than they were a year ago.

GCBC isn't here to break down segments, an impossible task for any group, but to display sales data for the sake of comparison. The more ways sales data can be displayed, the better. This explains why you'll see the Outback and Venza here but also with midsize cars, too, and the pricey FJ Cruiser and Xterra with smaller utilities and the Volkswagen Touareg with luxury SUVs... because readers have wanted it both ways. You can always find the sales results for EVERY vehicle and form your own competitive sets by using the All Vehicle Rankings posts.
