Moreover, even the Impala and GM’s other big sedan, the Buick LaCrosse combined trailed the Canadian-built Fiat Chrysler Automobiles’ duo by 4134 units in the first-quarter of 2016. Chrysler 300 sales are up 23% so far this year; Dodge Charger volume is up 6%.
Ford Taurus volume is rebounding, as well. And the eighth-generation Nissan Maxima continues to make headway. Maxima volume more than doubled in the United States during the first three months of 2016, a year-over-year increase of 9031 sales.
