Large car sales in the U.S. do not look good. All models on sale saw declines in sales for the month of October when compared with this month last year. When you look at YTD numbers, you’ll see that all models have seen significant sales drops.
The monthly sales numbers show the segment is down by about 250 sales. The YTD sales numbers show that the segment is down by about 3,100 sales.
The leader for the segment was the Dodge Charger. The car saw sales drop by over 17 percent for the month of October and by over eight percent YTD. Other models experience similar or worse sales declines.
We fully expect the sales declines to continue in the remaining months of 2019. The segment should continue to struggle in 2020 as well.
Data will trickle in throughout the day with the numbers being finalized by EOD. 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.
