U.S. Auto Sales Figures by Brand

The GCBC Analysis

When you at the data below for the U.S. market, the thing you’ll notice first is that more brands saw sales decreases than saw increases. This is true both for the month and for YTD.

Leading the pack in terms of overall sales volume was Ford. It was closely followed by Toyota. Both brands saw sales decreases for the month and for YTD. In fact, the top six brands in terms of sales volume all saw sales decreases for the month and YTD. The same is true if you just look at quarter two of 2019.

With all that said, some brands did see significant increases for both the last month and YTD. These include Ram, Hyundai, Subaru, Kia, Volkswagen, BMW, Tesla, Mitsubishi, Volvo, and Genesis.

Overall the industry is down on sales, we expect this to continue as the year progresses. It will be interesting to see which brands and if any more start to see notable declines in sales as the year moves forward.


Below you will find US sales figures for all of the major auto brands broken down by month and by quarter. Brands differ from Manufacturers, for example, Ford Motor Co manufacturers both Ford and Lincoln brands. If you are looking for U.S. sales figures by auto manufacturer check out this page instead.

GCBC is also happy to announce that we will be adding quarterly sales reports and comparisons in addition to monthly sales comparisons beginning this quarter. We will also be adding monthly sales tables and charts to the mix as well.

Note: FCA US LLC will end its practice of reporting U.S. and Canada sales on a monthly basis following June results. FCA US and FCA Canada will report monthly sales for May and June. The first quarterly report will occur on October 1, 2019, covering the months of July, August, and September.

Important note: Both Ford, GM, and FCA have switched to quarterly reporting, making it more difficult to accurately gauge sales. We won’t have results to report for Buick, Cadillac, Chevrolet, GMC, Ford, Lincoln, Jeep, Chrysler, Fiat, Alfa Romeo, Dodge, and Ram until the end of each quarter.
