Car brands - vehicle sales in the U.S. 2018

Leading car brands in the United States in 2018, based on vehicle sales (in units)

by I. Wagner, last edited Aug 23, 2019
Car brands - vehicle sales in the U.S. 2018 In 2018, Ford delivered about 2.4 million units to U.S. customers, and was thus the leading car brand in the United States based on vehicle sales during that year. The United States is the largest market for Ford: wholesales to U.S. dealerships reached 2.5 million vehicles in 2018.

Car sales among major manufacturers

The top three U.S. car brands are assembled and distributed by the leading manufacturers in the U.S. market: Ford Motor Company, Toyota Motor Corporation, and General Motors (GM). As of early 2019, GM's largest segment of sales was attributable to its Chevrolet-badged vehicles. Within the Ford Motor Corporation, the Ford division accounted for the largest number of vehicle sales. And finally, Toyota’s largest distribution of sales were attributable to the Toyota brand vehicles.

Automotive industry overview

Production and sales volumes are plateauing among the key automotive brands in the United States, as the automotive manufacturing and sales market is highly competitive both within the U.S. and globally. It is forecast that autonomous vehicles will disrupt the U.S. market between 2020 and 2030.
