U.S. minivan sales chart November 2011

The battle to become America’s best-selling minivan in 2011 could go one of three ways. The Dodge Grand Caravan, currently ranked second in the year-to-date standings, needs to out-sell the top-ranked Toyota Sienna by 883 sales in December to take the crown. The less likely possibility has November’s most popular minivan, the Honda Odyssey, out-selling the Sienna by 4286 sales in December in order to end the year as America’s favourite.

What’s missing from this speculation is the fact that the Dodge Grand Caravan’s January-through-November volume forms just 54% of Chrysler’s true minivan total. When combined with the nearly identical Town & Country, Chrysler and Dodge have sold 183,684 minivans through the first eleven months of 2011, nearly 84,000 more than Toyota achieved with the Sienna.

The Ford F-Series pickup family is more than five times more popular than any single minivan. F-Series sales are up 9% this year. In November, the F-Series beat the GM twins by 1518 sales. Ford’s big truck is America’s best-selling pickup, that’s for certain, and it’s also America’s best-selling vehicle overall.
