Tracking actual sales is becoming more difficult without Ford and General Motors reporting monthly, and now we don’t have figures for Fiat Chrysler either. All three of the Detroit-based automakers will report sales after the end of the third quarter.

Of the automakers that still report their sales, 784,914 new vehicles were sold versus 775,162 in July of 2018. That represents an increase of 1.3%. The big question is: will the Detroit car companies drag that down into a negative number? We’ll know at the end of next month.

Toyota was the big volume winner with 184,179 sales last month, although that represents a 15% decline from a year ago. Subaru continued its streak of monthly sales to 92 straight months of increases.

In the luxury car races year-to-date, Mercedes-Benz leads the way with 186,620 sales, followed by BMW at 179,454, and Lexus finishes up the top three with 160,760.
