January 2016 U.S. Vehicle Sales Rankings - Top 274 Best-Selling Vehicles In America - Every Vehicle Ranked

2016 Ford Explorer
U.S. new vehicle sales volume slid 0.4% in January 2016, a drop equal to 4000 fewer sales compared with January 2015. 

January 2016 was an abbreviated sales month as results for 2015 continued to be collected until January 4 of this year. There were only 24 selling days for the auto industry in January 2016, down from 26 last year. Thus, while "January" volume was down 0.4%, the daily selling rate between January 5 and February 1 was up 8%.

Thus, while the best-selling vehicle in America, Ford's F-Series, generated 5% fewer "January" sales in 2016 than in 2015, the F-Series' DSR – the sales produced between January 5 and February 1 and the equivalent period a year ago – was up 3%. 

Did the auto industry experience a slowdown in January? The red font will lead you to believe that the first follow-up to a record 2015 calendar year was poor. In fact, there was, in a sense, January sales growth. The faults of the auto sales calendar hid this fact.

Along with the F-Series claiming top spot among new vehicles overall and the top truck line, the Toyota Camry continued as America's best-selling car, trucks continued to claim the three top spots, and the Toyota RAV4 was the best-selling SUV/crossover for a third consecutive month.


The Lexus RX was America's best-selling premium brand utility vehicle in January 2016. No three-row vehicle sold more often than the Ford Explorer. The Toyota Tacoma grabbed nearly half of all small/midsize truck buyers.

One new vehicle began its U.S. sales tenure in January. Buick sold the first 88 copies of the Cascada convertible, a vehicle which won't be sold north of the border in Canada. 


On the whole, Buick was the 17th-best-selling auto brand in America in January 2016, up two spots from a year ago thanks to the brand's best month of January retail sales since 2003.

The table below is completely sortable, so when you click the column header to sort by vehicle names to showcase all Buicks together, for example, you'll also see the Buick brand's total. 

Beginning with these January results, we're also including totals for the corporate overlords: General Motors, Ford Motor Company, Toyota Motor Corp., and others. 

Manufacturers are shown in bold for differentiation between makes and models. At any time, click the Rank column to return to the original format. If you're on a mobile device, you may need to choose the full version of the site (at the bottom of the page) in order to use the sortable function.

Reminder: these are January 2016 rankings, but you can sort vehicles by the January 2016 column header – which produces the same results this month – or you can rank vehicles by improvements or declines using the % columns. Or, most importantly, you can list automakers together by selecting the Vehicle column header.


As always, you can find historical monthly and yearly sales figures for any of these vehicles by selecting a make and model at GCBC's Sales Stats page.

* Italicized, asterisked, unranked lines are nothing more than available breakdowns, already included in the model's total, not in addition to the model's total.
² Total Prius Family sales: down 24.0% to 9311.
³ BMW has traditionally chosen to include sales of the 4-Series within figures for the 3-Series, presumably for year-over-year consistency's sake, while also combining the 1-Series and 2-Series. Now, since July, we have a 3-Series/4-Series breakdown. (Hyundai does the same with the Genesis and Genesis Coupe.)
Total 3-Series/4-Series sales: down 30.3% to 5119.
° Overall market figure is a combination of all reported sales figures plus estimates for Tesla.
† Tesla figures are estimates from HybridCars.com.
Sales data for brands such as Aston Martin, Ferrari, Lamborghini, Lotus, Rolls-Royce etc. are unfortunately not broken down by model. ANDC estimates say sales for Aston Martin and Lotus in January 2016 were 86 and 4, respectively. 
Tesla, unfortunately, doesn't release model-specific monthly U.S. sales data, but we source estimates from HybridCars.com. Model S sales estimate: down 13.3% to 1300. Model X estimate: 400.
