January 2014 U.S. Vehicle Sales Rankings By Model – Top 249 Best-Selling Vehicles In America – Every Vehicle Ranked

2014 Dodge Grand Caravan grey
Minivan Sales Were On The Rise In January 2014 – Grand Caravan
Sales Jumped 47% – After Minivan Sales Fell 7% In January 2013.

As expected, the Ford F-Series took off in 2014 where it left off in 2013, as America’s best-selling vehicle line. The F-Series will be all-new later this year. In January 2014, the F-Series accounted for 34% of the pickups sold in America, up from 33% in January 2013. Both the second and third-ranked vehicles in January were also pickup trucks.

Despite a drastic 27% year-over-year decline, the Toyota Camry was still America’s best-selling car in January. The Honda Accord ranked fourth among midsize cars; the Ford Fusion third; but the second-ranked midsize car, Nissan’s Altima, was the only one of America’s five top-selling midsize cars to sell more often in January 2014 than in January 2013.

Ford’s F-Series wasn’t the brand’s only top seller: the tenth-ranked Ford Escape led the Honda CR-V in the SUV/CUV standings, although the gap was slim. The Honda Odyssey, the 39th-best-selling vehicle in the United States in January, was America’s top-selling minivan. 

The Odyssey wasn’t the only rising minivan. The minivan category as a whole reported a 13% year-over-year increase as the overall auto industry fell by 3%. In fact, even sales of the defunct Volkswagen Routan were on the rise last month.

Twelve different automobile nameplates which weren’t on sale a year ago attracted U.S. buyers in January 2014. The Jeep Cherokee ranked 26th in January. The Infiniti Q50 tied with the Buick LaCrosse for 92nd spot. Mercedes-Benz’s CLA-Class finished just behind the Dodge Challenger in the 106th position. The Mitsubishi Mirage, Kia Cadenza, Fiat 500L, Volvo V60, Chevrolet SS, Jaguar F-Type, Mini Paceman, Dodge Viper, and Cadillac ELR all slid in between the 151st and 237th positions.

There were important improvements introduced in October’s ranking of vehicle sales. Prior year figures now include the actual numbers from last year, not just the percentage increase from last year. As a result, we’ve also included vehicles like the Suzuki SX4 and Dodge Caliber, nameplates which collected sales last January but not this year. More useful, there are now visible brand results, so when you sort the table by vehicle names to showcase all Nissans together, for example, you’ll also see the Nissan brand’s total. Manufacturers are shown in bold for differentiation between makes and models. At any time, click the Rank column to return to the original format. If you’re on a mobile device, you may need to choose the full version of the site (at the bottom of the page) in order to use the sortable function.

You can sort vehicles by January volume by clicking the January column header, or you can rank vehicles by improvements or declines using the % columns. Or, most importantly, you can list automakers together by selecting the Vehicle column header.

As always, you can find historical monthly and yearly sales figures for any of these vehicles by selecting a make and model at GCBC’s Sales Stats page.

* Italicized unranked lines are nothing more than available breakdowns, already included in the model’s total, not in addition to the model’s total.
^ Brand total includes sales of commercial vans
¹ Dodge/Ram sales figures are isolated hereChrysler markets the Ram not as a Dodge but as a Ram, but we show it and the SRT Viper here as Dodges so you can see the vehicles with like-minded products when you sort vehicles alphabetically using the Vehicle column header.
² Total Prius Family sales: down 22.6% to 12,205.
³ BMW has chosen to include sales of the 4-Series within figures for the 3-Series, presumably for year-over-year consistency’s sake, while also combining the 1-Series and 2-Series.
† Total Infiniti G/Q50/Q60 sales: up 51.5% to 4264. G sedan and Q50 sales up 76.3% to 3851.
‡ Acura has chosen to combine sales figures for the RLX and its predecessor, the RL.
Sales data for brands such as Aston Martin, Ferrari, Lamborghini, Lotus, Rolls-Royce etc. are unfortunately not broken down by model. estimates say sales for those brands in January were 70, 164,47, 23, and 86, respectively. Tesla, unfortunately, doesn’t release model-specific monthly U.S. sales data. With hard and fast sales data, we would likely discover that the Tesla Model S is one of America’s 150 best-selling vehicles.
