Our Take Brand & Corporation Rankings

November 2016 was the best November in recorded history for the US auto sales market. November 2017 pushes that record even higher, with 1.385 million vehicles sold to last year’s 1.37 million.

FCA’s struggles were less pronounced in November than in recent months, with the automaker remaining fourth in the overall rankings, though last November was not a particularly month for them. This November, FCA is down 3.79% overall, following last year’s drops of 14.3% for this month.

The Fiat brand itself was one of the biggest losers for FCA – sales are down 28% year-on-year of the Italian marque, while Dodge also suffered with 15% fewer vehicles sold than were last November.

Ford Motor Company posted steady growth, with sales increasing 6.7% year-on-year. A number of Ford models – the Focus, Transit, Edge and Explorer – posted impressive gains this month to contribute to the blue oval’s increase.

Honda and Nissan both went further in the corporations standings however, with the Japanese brands posting growth of 8.3 and 13.8% year-on-year respectively. Drops for the Lexus and Toyota name badges put Toyota Motor Corporation on a 3% drop.

General Motors, at the top of the table, saw a similar drop to Toyota Motor Corporation.

German premium brands Audi, BMW and Mercedes-Benz all saw increases in November, while the likes of Buick and Lincoln saw drops alongside the aforementioned Lexus brand.

  • ETS00000

    somehow you’ve made a bad site worse.

    • blh

      Agreed. Very difficult to navigate, and stats presented in a format that is not easy to read or manipulate.

    • Joey McClary

      Actually, I enjoyed the site very much before this new format. Now I can’t stand it. It’s not very difficult to navigate, it’s impossible.

  • Frederico

    Subaru has been improving its performance

  • Frederico

    Toyota in the vice leadership in 2017. Subaru almost sold 600 thousand units. Dodge and Chrysler in decline. Bentley losing sales and Mitsubishi almost reaching 100 thousand, the year 2017 brought changes.

    • Walter Meoño Segura

      Sorry, buddy, but if you meant Toyota is the second place, that second place belongs to Ford, so Toyota is third. Just check the numbers. Cheers from Costa Rica.

      • Frederico

        You are wrong. It is not mentioning groups, but brands. Toyota is rather the second best-selling brand in the US in 2017. GM and Ford Group are groups rather than brands.

        • Luca Bartolozzi

          nope, you can’t read numbers? Ford brand of Ford Corp (Lincoln brand not included) and Chevrolet brand of GM are selling more in November than Toyota+Scion Brand of Toyota corp ( Lexus not included). 2017 ytd Toyota+Scion is second. selling more than Chevrolet

          • Frederico

            1th Ford: 2,233 million
            2th Toyota: 2,211 million
            3th Chevrolet: 1,859 million
            4th Honda: 1,352 million

            6th Jeep: 755 thousand
            7th Hyundai: 603,000.

            ————

            Toyota in 2nd place. The automaker Scion ended its activities.

        • Walter Meoño Segura

          Well, it was impossible to define what you were talking about, so I guessed you were talking about groups. And Toyota is also a group, isn’t it?

          • Frederico

            Yes. Scion has been in the US for some time. The Lexus line does not add up to the Toyota line.

      • Frederico

        1th Ford: 2,233 million
        2th Toyota: 2,211 million
