The segment’s loss of 62 sales wouldn’t mean much if it weren’t for the fact that, as was already mentioned, car sales are rising, as is the overall market.

Instead, mainstream brand large cars, which accounted for 4.6% of the new vehicle market in June 2012, only made up 4.2% of the new vehicle market in June 2013. Last month, America’s two best-selling cars accounted for 4.9% of the overall market.
Three-quarters of the category’s volume was generated by Detroit brands. 757 of the Ford Taurus’s sales came from the Police Interceptor sedan – non-police Taurus sales rose 5.9% in June.
