Declines from America’s three best-selling vehicles – all pickup trucks – were counteracted by declines from America’s fourth, fifth, and sixth-best-selling vehicles – all crossovers – in August 2016. Yes, the Toyota Camry, America’s most popular car, was not only outsold by three pickup truck lineups but three small utility vehicles, as well.
As the U.S. new vehicle market declined by nearly 4% in August, the majority of the most popular autos in America also sold less often in August 2016 than in August 2015. The exceptions – in particular the Jeep Cherokee, Chevrolet Cruze, Subaru Outback, and Hyundai Santa Fe – were not successful enough to overcome the losses recorded by top sellers such as the F-Series, Silverado, Ram, and Camry.
