Top 20 Worst-Selling Vehicles In America – March 2017


2017 Acura TLX black

In the lead-up to the now ongoing launch of the all-new, second-generation Jeep Compass, the disappearance of the outgoing Jeep Compass caused the Jeep Compass to be America’s worst-selling vehicle in March 2017, the third consecutive month in which the Compass’s year-over-year decline was worst among volume vehicles.

U.S. Vehicle Sales By Model – April 2017 YTD

Fiat Chrysler Automobiles products also ranked second and seventh on the list. Both of those vehicles, the Chrysler 200 and Jeep Patriot, have been officially killed off. 

GCBC has also compiled lists of the 20 worst-selling vehicles in America regardless of volume and the 20 lowest-volume vehicles. But it’s the higher-volume vehicles that caused the overall market to decline modestly in March 2017. The 20 vehicles on the first list below – Compass to TLX – combined to lose 70,575 sales in March 2017, year-over-year.
