August Best and Worst-Selling Cars in the US image

A recent report shows the best and worst selling vehicles in the US over the past month.

As it was expected, the first place in America’s best-selling vehicles is held by Ford with its F-Series pickup, which sold 58,201 units, followed by Chevrolet Silverado on the second place with 38,295 trucks sold. The third and fourth places were held by the redesigned Toyota Camry with 36,720 units and the Honda Accord with sales of 34,848 vehicles.

Ford Escape was the first crossover to make the list, with 28,188 units, followed by another newcomer, the Chevrolet Cruze compact sedan which amassed 25,975 buyers. On the 7th place we see the Nissan Altima with 25,889 sales and the Ram trucks come in 8th position, with 25,215 units sold. The Honda Civic and the old but still popular Toyota Corolla/Matrix were close enough from each other with 24,897 and 24,311 buyers, respectively.

Let’s now see the other side of the coin with the worst-selling vehicles of the month. The Lexus LFA saw a 33% sales decrease in August and the Porsche Cayman was the next with only 14 units sold. The third worst-selling vehicle was Mitsubishi I with 37 units sold.
