U.S. Auto Sales Brand Rankings - February 2017 YTD

2017 Fiat 500X cream
Auto sales in the United States in February 2017 declined by slightly more than 1% because of plunging car and minivan sales even as SUVs, crossovers, and pickup trucks continued to surge.


U.S. Vehicle Sales By Model - February 2017 YTD


The end of February marks the end of the first one-sixth of 2017, but it is the one-sixth of the year in which volume forms just one-seventh of the calendar year's total. February 2017 nevertheless can be used as a predictor of some industry trends heading into the profitable portion of the year: automakers relied on fleet sales for a lower percentage of their sales last month, but incentive spending was up by more than 13%, according to ALG, and inventories at many automakers is soaring.

Ford Motor Company's Ford division slid 5% because of a sharp drop at the brand's car division, though the Ford F-Series posted a meaningful increase. Ford was the top-selling brand in America in February. 

General Motors topped the auto sales charts thanks to improvements at GMC and Chevrolet, though Buick and Cadillac both fell notably. GM's market share improved by nearly a point, year-over-year.

Mercedes-Benz was the best-selling premium brand. Mitsubishi, Infiniti, Audi, and GMC were the fastest-growing non-niche brands – Alfa Romeo, Bentley, Jaguar, and Maserati posted huge percentage increases. On the other end of the ledger, Chrysler, Mini, and Lexus all slid by more than 20%.
