Large car sales in the U.S. looked pretty bad in the month of December and when you look at the 2019 year as a whole. When you look at just the month of December, the Dodge Charger was the only model that saw sales go up. When you look at the whole year, you’ll see that only the Dodge Charger and Kia K900 saw sales rise.
When you look at the December sales only, the segment was down by about 8,000 sales. When you look at sales for the entire year, you’ll see that the segment was down by about 63,000 sales.
The Dodge Charger was the winner in terms of overall sales volume. The car saw sales rise by about 17 percent in the month of December and sales rise by about 21 percent for the year. Despite the car’s old age in terms of design, it’s still selling extremely well, and this could continue in the coming year.
2020 will likely be more of the same. The Kia K900 and the Dodge Charger will continue to see sales rise and the rest of the field will see sales drop further.
