Honda’s Civic Was The Only Vehicle In The Top
10 To Post A Year-Over-Year Sales Increase
Americans registered nearly three million fewer vehicles in 2008 than in 2007, and the decline had an impact, in one way or another, on nearly every automaker.
Yet the order of America’s five best-selling vehicles remained the same as the year before. Despite their 25% declines – much worse than the overall market’s 18% drop – the two top-selling trucks held steady as America’s two top-selling vehicles overall.
The exhaustive table below is sortable, so as much as it’s a ranking of U.S. vehicle sales in 2008, it can also be an alphabetical listing of the 279 vehicles nameplates which were sold that year. You can also rank vehicles by year-over-year change, in which you’ll the Dodge Journey near the top and the Buick Rendezvous at the bottom.
