It seems that low gas prices are fueling truck sales, as the two best-selling vehicles are once again full-size pickups. However, the Dodge Ram, usually a staple of this top 10 list, has fallen off, just barely beaten out by the Ford Escape. Ford had three of the top 10 best-sellers, including a sales record for the Fusion; the redesigned sedan seems to be attracting shoppers.
While sales for nearly every brand were down, GM, Ford and Hyundai stayed competitive, seeing sales losses of 29%, 25.5% and 20% from last May, respectively. That’s competitive when you compare them to Chrysler, Toyota and Honda, which saw mind-boggling falls of 47%, 39.7% and 38%. Of course, Honda and Toyota were setting sales records at this time last year, so their negatives are a bit higher than you'd expect.
