Top 30 Best-Selling Vehicles In America - March 2016

2016 Hyundai Sonata 2.0T
As the U.S. auto industry posted unexpectedly modest growth in March 2016, all three of America's best-selling vehicles grew at least twice as fast as the industry as a whole. 


U.S. Vehicle Sales Rankings By Model - March 2016 YTD


All three of America's best-selling vehicles are pickup trucks. Through the first-quarter of 2016, the Ford F-Series, Chevrolet Silverado, and Ram P/U added 23,000 sales to the industry's ledger. 

With expectations rising that March auto sales volume may rise by more than 7% in America, General Motors posted marginal growth, Toyota lost sales, and numerous premium brands posted declines.  Passenger car sales dropped by more than 6% as the Toyota Camry – America's top-selling car seven months running – tumbled 9% and despite huge gains from the Hyundai Sonata, Honda Civic, Nissan Sentra, and Chevrolet Malibu.

Compared with March 2015, the Subaru Outback, Ford Edge, Nissan Versa, and Toyota Highlander replaced former members of the top 30: BMW 3-Series/4-Series, Kia Optima, Chevrolet Cruze, and Chrysler 200.

We've already published March 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, one van, 12 cars, and 12 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.
