GENERAL MOTORS +21% (Buick, Cadillac, Chevrolet, and GMC only)
Although the new GM is undeniably smaller than the eight-brand behemoth of yore, the company's four current brands have all enjoyed a resurgence this year--with Buick earning a special shout-out. Cars, trucks, and crossovers all contributed to GM's sales increase, which suggests that the company is on a more solid footing than in years past.
Silverado +17%, is the #2 best-selling vehicle in America
Camaro +32%, outsold the Mustang for the first time since the mid '80s
Cruze, was Chevrolet's bestselling car in December
Malibu +23%, but only +13% for retail sales, and the Ford Fusion outsold it two to one
STS -26%, yes, they still sell this car
