The Chevrolet Impala, still a popular nameplate, suffered a 10.5% year-over-year decrease to 140,280 units. Combined, the Dodge Charger and Chrysler 300 – 147,481 sales between the pair – were down 5.5%. The Ford Taurus took a 22% dive. Hyundai Azera volume tumbled 36%. The Nissan Maxima, approaching replacement, slid 6.5%. Toyota Avalon sales slid 5% following 2013 sales which increased to a six-year high.
With the American market, even the global market, turning toward more practical and similarly fuel-efficient utility vehicles, this will simply not be a growth segment in the near (or likely even distant) future.
