2017 U.S. Auto Industry Sales Winners and Losers By Brand

Top-Selling Pickups Auto Industry Sales National Auto Sales

I saw a real push by the automakers and dealers the last week of 2017, through the evening of January 2, 2018, the deadline for reporting sales.  I don’t think any of us in the industry thought 2017 would beat 2016 considering 2016 was the biggest year in automotive history.

2017 Auto Industry Sales Decline Slightly

When the smoke cleared, the industry was down 1.8% from 2016 and finished at 17,245,000 sales.  However, it was the third straight year the industry surpassed the 17 million-unit mark. Most of us in the industry consider anything plus or minus 2% to be about flat.

We’ll take a deeper dive into the numbers next week, but we know that the Ford F-Series truck was once again the #1 selling vehicle overall and that Camry was the #1 selling car in America.  Subaru had the best month in their history in December and overall had its best year in history.

Here are the auto industry sales winners and losers of the full year 2017 versus the full year of 2016.
