USA Auto Sales Brand Rankings - March 2015 YTD

2016 Cadillac CT6
Automakers were expected to report a slight overall decrease in Mach U.S. auto sales in the third month of 2015 in part due to a month with fewer weekends than the same period possessed one year ago. Was March to mean more, a potential beginning of a levelling-off of auto sales demand? 

With one fewer day of sales than in March 2014, auto sales actually increased slightly in March 2015, rising against expectations thanks to especially strong results from a number of higher-volume premium brands. And, of course, Jeep.

Hyundai's March 2015 sales shot to the highest level ever for the brand regardless of month. For FCA, formerly known as the Chrysler Group, sales increased for the 60th consecutive month in March 2015, a 2% increase to more than 197,000 units despite a sharp Dodge brand decrease and falling Fiat sales.

Ford, on the other hand, failed to post improved sales as both an overall manufacturer and with the Ford brand. FoMoCo says a sharp drop in fleet volume overcame a slight 1% retail increase to bring the Blue Oval down in March 2015. GM sales slid 2.4% in March 2015, but don't blame the pickup trucks: they sold 9055 midsize trucks, Silverado volume jumped 7%, and Sierra sales were up 3%. 

Nissan produced a 15% "light truck" improvement at its namesake Nissan brand, but car sales slid 13%, dragging the brand down 3%. Stellar results at Toyota meant the Toyota brand outsold Chevrolet by 16,595 units. Scion sales plunged 25%. Lexus jumped 9% to more than 31,000 sales in March.

Automakers anticipated a strong February 2015, and it was, but it wasn't quite as strong as anticipated as weather wreaked havoc in certain corners of the United States.

The 5% year-over-year improvement translated to nearly 64,000 extra sales compared with February 2014. The fastest-growing auto brand was Mini, although Jeep's 21% jump was tops among volume brands. Smart and Maserati posted the worst decreases, but Jeep's Dodge partner brand was down 15%, worst among volume brands.

General Motors, the top-selling manufacturer of automobiles in America, posted harsh declines with its smaller Buick and Cadillac brands but a meaningful Chevrolet improvement and a 19% jump in GMC sales. GM sold 69,628 pickup trucks in February 2015.

FCA's 6% increase occurred despite falling Fiat and Dodge sales. As we've come to expect, the brand's biggest seller was Jeep, the same brand responsible for much of FCA/Chrysler Group's U.S. sales growth. 


The Ford Motor Company reported a 2% decrease as the Lincoln brand took a sharp dive and Ford brand sales slid slightly: Ford cars fell 6%, Ford utilities slid 4%, Ford F-Series volume was down 1%.

Toyota Motor Sales, USA was the second-best seller of automobiles in the United States in February 2015. Toyota hadn't outsold the typical number two, Dearborn's Ford Motor Company, since August of last year, and hasn't outsold FoMoCo on an annual basis since 2009.

U.S. sales at FCA U.S. LLC, what you know better as the Chrysler Group, jumped 14% in January 2015 thanks to a big improvement at Jeep, meaningful gains at Ram and Chrysler, and smaller improvements at Dodge and Fiat.

The Ford Motor Company reported its best January since 2004 thanks to F-Series which sales which did the same and best-ever January Escape volume. 

Meanwhile, General Motors January volume reached a seven-year high despite modest gains from Cadillac and a Buick loss. Combined, Chevrolet and GMC were up by nearly 32,000 units, year-over-year.

The first record reported belonged to Nissan, which despite disappointing Infiniti figures, recorded record Nissan Group and record Nissan division sales in calendar year 2014. U.S. sales of the Altima, Rogue, Versa, Juke, and Leaf all rose to new highs, as well.

The Chrysler Group's (FCA US's) 16% improvement was powered in large part by Jeep and Ram as the contributions from Alfa Romeo, Fiat, and Chrysler were small, while Dodge sales decreased. Honda sales were basically flat, but encouraging signs from Acura late in the year and steadily improving CR-V volume lifted spirits. Cadillac sales slid 6.5% in 2014, but GM's other three brands posted meaningful improvements. At the Ford Motor Company, sales declined slightly in 2014 as the F-Series pickup line aged and declined modestly and cars dropped more sharply. Toyota ended the year on a high note with best-ever Lexus sales, and the calendar year as a whole was certainly not unkind to the world's largest automaker.


U.S. Auto Brand Sales Results: December 2014 & Year End


Ford will go down as America's top-selling auto brand in 2014 with modest year-over-year growth. General Motors is the top-selling overall manufacturer. Look for the most exciting improvements to come from FCA/Chrysler Group's Jeep and Ram brands.

USA Auto Sales Brand Rankings - December 2014 & Year End

Automobile manufacturers collectively reported an 11% year-over-year sales increase in the United States during the month of December 2014. Calendar year sales rose 6% to more than 16 million for the first time since 2007.

Nissan began the day with disappointing Infiniti figures but predictable Nissan brand growth. Infiniti did report year-over-year growth for the calendar year, but sales are down compared with 2012, not to mention the 136K Infinitis sold in 2005. Honda's Acura division helped push the overall company forward in December but both brands struggled to put up signficant increases in calendar year 2014. FCA US's 20% December jump (FCA US LLC is Chrysler Group to you) was helped along by approximately 10,000 extra sales from Chrysler, 10,000 extra sales from Ram, and 10,000 extra sales from Jeep. General Motors led all manufacturers with 2.9 million sales in 2014. Three of the company's four brands reported December and year-end improvements. 

At the Ford Motor Company, December presented modest increases for the Ford brand thanks in large part to a big boost from the Mustang. Lincoln sales jumped 21%. Toyota, the planet's largest automobile manufacturer, produced a big December, especially with its Lexus brand: never in any prior month had Lexus sold this many new vehicles.
