USA Auto Sales Brand Rankings - 2014 Year End

2014 Toyota RAV4
As we update GCBC's December 2014 brand-by-brand results page with U.S. auto sales figures, this page will also be updated with a concentration on the year end numbers alone.

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.

Early November 2014 U.S. sales results from Chrysler Group were as expected: much better than they were one year ago. Thanks to strong Jeep SUV sales and surging Ram truck volume, the Chrysler Group has been in rude health in calendar year 2014.

Ford Motor Company sales declined in November 2014 despite a 12% uptick among Ford brand utilities (Escape up 22%), as F-Series sales fell 10% and overall car sales slid 5%.

General Motors, the largest seller of automobiles in the United States, sold 6.5% more new vehicles this November than in November 2013 as Buick (up 27%), Chevrolet (up 3%), and GMC (up 23%) posted meaningful gains. Cadillac was down 19%. Chevrolet sold 2366 Colorados; GMC sold 854 Canyons.

Honda brand sales grew 5% in November 2014 despite losses from the Accord and Civic, the brand's traditional top sellers. For the second consecutive month, the CR-V (up 38%) was the brand's top seller, instead, and now leads the Civic on year-to-date terms.

Toyota brand sales rose 3.1% in November 2014, a month in which Lexus outsold Cadillac by more than two-to-one, even as Toyota's top-selling Camry declined. Corolla sales jumped 14%; RAV4 volume was up 9%.

Therefore, with mostly strong results from the majority of big manufacturers, it's not surprising to see the industry as a whole achieve a high-volume November. 1.3 million new vehicles were sold last month, a 5% year-over-year improvement. Ram was America's fastest-growing volume brand. Scion's decline was worst. 44.8% of the new vehicles sold left GM, Ford, and Chrysler Group showrooms.
