2016 U.S Passenger Car Sales Figures By Model (With Rankings)

Sales Figures & Rankings for Passenger Cars Sold in the United States

2016 Best Selling Passenger Cars In the United States (All Models Ranked)

2016 was not the year of the car. U.S. auto sales rose to an all-time high of some 17.5M units, but passenger cars accounted for just 39% of the industry’s volume, down from 43% in 2015 and 52% as recently as 2012.

Part of that decline can be laid at the feet, or rather the tires, of the Toyota Camry, America’s  best-selling car. To what extent the Camry can recover from these doldrums – sales fell 10% to 388,618 units in 2016, the lowest total and first sub-400K yeear since 2011 – once the all-new model is introduced at this month’s North American International Auto Show in Detroit remains to be seen. New can’t hurt.
