U.S. Auto Sales: Ford, Chrysler sales up in December and 2013 - table

Good news for the auto industry as two of the biggest carmakers in North America announced strong gains for 2013. Overall, the auto industry sold about 15 million vehicles last year, for the first time since 2007.

Ford Motor Company, on Friday said it sold 2,493,918 million cars and trucks in 2013, a nearly 11 percent increase (10.8 percent) compared to 2012; the best year since 2006. On the same time, the Dearborn based automaker said last month it sold 218,058 vehicles, up 2 percent compared to December 2012.

“December was a strong close to an even better year for Ford Motor Company,” said John Felice, Ford vice president, U.S. Marketing, Sales and Service.

The announcement comes just days after the automaker said Ford brand vehicles retail sales were up 14 percent in 2013 and the company was capable to widen its lead against Toyota. Ford is America’s best-selling brand for fourth consecutive year (GM remains the largest carmaker in the U.S. by sales volume, but GM sell cars under four brands).

According to the official data, Ford brand closes out 2013 with 2,412,224 vehicles sold.
In addition, the F-Series pickup truck remains America’s best-selling truck for 37 straight years and the country’s best-selling vehicle for 32 consecutive years. (763,402 units sold in 2013 / more than 60,000 in December.)
