November 2013 Auto Sales

#Ford, #Ford

Chrysler boasted the biggest gain among the domestic automakers, and added market share in the process.

Chrysler +12%
Again this month, the Town & Country (+70%) was the engine driving the Chrysler division, while the 200 (-24%) and the 300 (-14%) were the brakes.

Dodge +4%
The Dart (+45%) darted ahead in November, while the Avenger, unsurprisingly, declined (-32%). With a push from Ron Burgundy, the Durango (+36%) saw gains.

Jeep +30%
The long-awaited new Jeep Cherokee finally arrived in quantity in November -- and it sold in quantity, too, topping 10,000 units. Other Jeeps pitched in as well: the Compass (+31%), Patriot (+23%), Wrangler (+14%), and Grand Cherokee (+9%).

Ram +25%
The big Ram pickup (+22%) looks to be closing in on the Silverado; in any event, it was the number four nameplate (behind Camry, Silverado, and F-series) overall.

Fiat -15%
Fiat's decline has got to be sounding some alarms in Auburn Hills. It would have been much worse (-41%) had it not been for the arrival of the 500L.

Honda was stagnant in a surging market.

Honda -2%
The Civic and the Accord flip-flopped, with the Accord again out in front of its smaller sibling, although the pair remained in 5th and 6th place overall. The CR-V was again the bestselling SUV. So where did Honda lose ground? The Civic and the Pilot (both -13%), and the Crosstour (-31%).

Acura +19%
Acura added to its total thanks entirely to the MDX (+81%) and the RDX (+21%). For the passenger cars, it was all bad news. The ILX was back in negative territory (-25%), along with the TL (-24%) and the TSX (-39%). Meanwhile, the new RLX did little to help, selling 676 units.

The Koreans beat their November 2012 total, as Hyundai posted another modest gain and Kia swung from negative in October to positive last month.

Hyundai +5%
The new Santa Fe (+43%) and the Accent (+42%) led the charge for Hyundai, while the Azera (-32%), and the Genesis (-17%) were down.

Kia +11%
With the Sportage doubling, the new Soul up significantly (+77%), and the Cadenza adding 913 units, Kia easily beat its year-ago total in November, despite declines for the Sedona (-57%), the Sorento (-20%), and the Optima (-15%).

Nissan was able to beat the market again in November, with both Nissan and Infiniti divisions up by the same 11%.

Nissan +11%
The new Sentra (+63%) led the gains at Nissan. The Altima (+21%) surged to the number seven spot among all nameplates. And the Frontier (+55%) was buoyed by strong demand for pickups -- and by the departure of the Ford Ranger. The Titan (-33%) and the Armada (-31%), meanwhile, are looking old, and the Cube (-61%) looks to be dissolving.

Infiniti +11%
The new Q50 and the JX pushed Infiniti ahead, despite slippage for lesser models like the FX and the M.

Amazing facts of auto verkopen (auto sales). Sad to see Ford doing not as expected. GMC, Lexus and Lincoln have done considerably a good job.
