U.S. Auto Sales Brand Rankings – May 2017 YTD


With the Ford F-Series hitting it’s best May in 13 years and Ford Brand SUV’s setting a record up 4.2%, The Ford Motor Company is the leader in May 2017 sales among all brands. 

Coming in at a close second was GMC with Buick showing a 28.5% YOY increase in sales. 

BMW was the worst performer of the month coming in at an 11% decrease from May of 2016.

If you don’t wish to see automakers arranged alphabetically, click column headers to sort automakers by May sales, year-over-year change, year-to-date totals, or any other order. Best seller lists for cars, trucks, and SUVs will be added later this afternoon. In the coming days, GCBC will also publish a complete list of year-to-date sales for every single vehicle line, a list which includes brand results. (Check out the 2016 version here.) You can always find historical monthly and yearly sales figures for any brand by clicking the brand name in the table below or by selecting a make (or model) at GCBC’s Sales Stats page.

Click column headers to sort by specific categories. Using the mobile version of GoodCarBadCar? Thumb across the table for full-width visibility or switch to the web version at the bottom of the page, at which point columns will be sortable.
