The Ford F-Series’ 5% decline once again allowed the full-size General Motors pickup twins – second-ranked Silverado; 20th-ranked Sierra – to outsell the top-selling vehicle line in America. Combined sales of the Silverado and Sierra rose 7% to 52,244 units in January 2016.
We’ve already published January 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, 12 cars, and 12 utility vehicles.
U.S. auto sales volume was down 0.4% in January 2016, but it’s worth noting that January was an abbreviated sales month. There were only 24 selling days in January 2016, down from 26 one year ago.
As a result, a vehicle like, for instance, the Honda Accord, saw its daily selling rate rise 7.1% in January 2016. But total volume, as shown in this list, was down 1.2%. The Ford F-Series? Its DSR was up 2.7%.
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.
