Mid-Year U.S. Auto Sales Report Including GM Numbers

Auto sales winners and losers

Half of 2018 is in the history books now, even including the second quarter numbers from General Motors.

For the month of June, the auto industry showed strong growth in the United States, up 5.2% versus June 2017.  When all the smoke cleared, Americans bought 1,551,399 new vehicles last month.

This June, FCA had strong increases in the Ram and Jeep brands, and Ford had a slight increase due to pickup and SUV sales.  Most automakers that offer pickups were up for the month with the average price of trucks topping over $49,000.

We got to see General Motors numbers for the first time in three months and they were better than I expected to see.  GM offered strong incentives during the second quarter and during that timeframe increased sales 5.7%.
