USA Auto Sales Brand Rankings - March 2014 YTD

2014 Dodge Grand Caravan red
March 2014 Was Chrysler's Best Dodge Grand
Caravan U.S. Sales Month Since December 2010
As auto industry forecasters predict a narrow 2% gain in total U.S. auto sales in March 2014, the early tone set by Fiat Chrysler's American operations was seen as an anomaly. Seemingly unaffected by poor weather in January and February, Chrysler's surge continued unabated in March.

The Chrysler Group relied on light trucks and SUVs for its 13% year-over-year March 2014 increase as car sales at Fiat, Chrysler, and Dodge slid 25%, according to Chrysler Group LLC's press release. 

In the history of Jeep, brand-wide sales have never been higher on a monthly basis than they were in March 2014, and it wasn't all down to the Cherokee, as even the Patriot and Compass produced their highest-volume months ever. Fiat also enjoyed its best ever sales month, although sales of the 500 were down 13%.


The Ford Motor Company, however, did begin to see sales improvements in March as the midsize Fusion set a record for monthly sales and the F-Series climbed above 70,000 units, generating a 5% increase. Ford brand utility vehicle sales were up 3.2%.

Excluding Sprinter, BMW outsold the Mercedes-Benz division by 4706 units in March but trails Mercedes-Benz, the premium brand leader, by 237 units at the end of Q1.

Toyota says no automaker sold more new vehicles to retail customers last month than, you guessed it, Toyota. The Ford brand outsold the Toyota brand by 53,610 units overall, but March most definitely marked a bright end to the first quarter for Toyota as the Camry surged to 41,953 units and "light trucks" shot up 10%. American Honda, outsold by the Nissan USA for the second consecutive month, did produce a 10.5% increase with its Acura brand and a 6.5% increase with its CR-V, one of America's leading SUVs.

Aside from the fact that the Ram P/U outsold the Chevrolet Silverado, GM's delayed sales release didn't reveal anything that horrific. Across the board, GM sales were up 4%, with increases from Buick, Chevrolet, and GMC. Maligned of late, Cruze sales increased 14%. Silverado and Sierra sales improved, year-over-year. Chevrolet sold 3480 Corvettes.

More details after the results.

USA Auto Sales Brand Rankings - February 2014 YTD

2014 Nissan Rogue Red
In Total, Nissan USA Sold 17,197 Rogues In February 2014
America's February 2014 auto sales reports were released by every automaker today. 

Early results were almost prophetically mixed, as Hyundai blames the weather, in part, for a 6% decline, even as the Nissan brand set a February sales record with nearly 106,000 sales. In the end, relatively substantial increases from Jeep, Ram, Nissan, Subaru, Buick, Lincoln, and Jaguar - among others - were offset by substantial decreases from many big brands, including Honda, Toyota, Volkswagen, and Ford.


The Chrysler Group reported an 11% year-over-year increase in total volume. The Jeep brand posted gains of 14,782 units as Cherokee/Liberty sales rose by more than 10,000 units.

Ford Motor Company says fleet sales lost from bad weather in February will be made up in  March; it won't be hard to test that claim if we wait four weeks. Sales of the F-Series rose 3% to 55,882 units, 32% of the Ford brand's February 2014 total. For Volkswagen, a 14% year-over-year decline was traced back to the disappearance of outgoing models and the lack of incoming replacements, for now. General Motors enjoyed an Encore-fuelled boost at Buick but sales at GM's other three brands decreased last month. 

The Toyota brand is down by nearly 20,000 sales through the first two months of 2014, compared with the first one-sixth of 2013. Harsh declines from the Yaris, Prius, Avalon, Venza, and Sienna hurt Toyota in February 2014, although positive signs continue to be lit up by the RAV4. American Honda enjoyed a slim uptick in Acura sales despite the Acura division's 27% decline in car sales, but total Honda brand sales slid 8% as Honda's cars fell 10%.

More details after the results.
