More specifically, a number of high-volume models produced industry-powering gains in September. Together, the Chevrolet Silverado (+17,670), Ram P/U (+8467), Honda Accord (+7780), Toyota RAV4 (+6796), Nissan Rogue (+5876), Chevrolet Cruze (+5685), BMW 3-Series (+4302), and Nissan Sentra (+4768) added 61,344 sales to the auto industry’s total.
Meanwhile, new models which weren’t available in September of last year – i3, 98, X4, ProMaster, GLA-Class, Transit, MKC, ELR, SS, TLX, K900, Q3, Macan, V60 – contributed 13,186 sales in September. Jeep’s Cherokee, the brand’s top seller in September and America’s 22nd-best-selling vehicle overall last month, threw in another 14,639 sales.
But even without the 27,825 sales provided by new nameplates, the industry grew 7% in September 2014. There were slowdowns, of course. Two such vehicles, the Ford F-Series and Toyota Camry, are typically the first and third-best-selling vehicles in the country. They ranked first and fifth, respectively, in September, and sales of the pair fell 1% and 11% as they both approach replacement.
We’ve already published September lists for the 20 best-selling cars, 20 best-selling SUVs and crossovers, and complete figures for every pickup truck, links to which you’ll find below. Throwing all those vehicles into one group results in this list of the 30 best-selling vehicles overall. We end up with five pickup trucks, one minivan, 14 cars, and ten utility vehicles.
Historical monthly and yearly sales figures for any of these top-selling vehicles can always be accessed through the dropdown menu at GCBC’s Sales Stats page, and for those not viewing the mobile version of this site, near the top right of this page, as well.
