About This Statistic

The statistic shows the leading North American car brands in January 2017, based on the number of vehicles sold in the United States. In January 2017, some 162,401 vehicles were sold under the Ford brand.


Vehicle sales of American car brands

The love affair between U.S. customers and light trucks came to a halt when fuel prices peaked in 2009 and miles per gallon costs soared. As a result, the industry sold less light trucks in 2009 than it did in 1995. In 2015, U.S. car buyers and American light truck manufacturers have rekindled their love and both SUVs and light trucks are in high demand: Among the Detroit Three automakers, shipments of pickup trucks and SUVs rose by double digit percentages between 2015 and 2014. To a large extent, these models are brands manufactured and sold by American original equipment manufacturers (OEMs). In 2015, Ford’s F-Series truck was the best-selling light truck in the United States, while GM’s Chevrolet Silverado and FCA’s Ram P/U came in second and third. The increase in light truck sales comes at the disadvantage of other segments, including midsized and compact cars, which are mainly produced by Asian OEMs, including Toyota, Honda and Nissan. General Motors was the largest North America-based car manufacturer in December 2016. During this month, the company sold just under 320,000 light vehicles in the United States. GM sells vehicles under its various brands, including Chevrolet, Buick, GMC, Cadillac, Opel and Vauxhall, Wuling, Baojun and Jie Fang. General Motors is the North American car manufacturer with the largest range of brands. Although under the wing of a European carmaker, Chrysler is often still considered one of the Detroit Big Three automakers; Chrysler’s holding company, FCA, sells owns the Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, and Ram brands. Ford sells vehicles mainly under its Ford and Lincoln brands.
