Chrysler minivans #1 in segment

by David Zatz on

Chrysler minivans have bounced back in U.S. market share in February, both individually and together, easily besting the Honda Odyssey and Toyota Sienna. The Caravan was the 14th most popular vehicle in the US and the most popular minivan; the Town & Country was the 19th most popular vehicle and the second most popular minivan. Together, the pair would have displaced the Nissan Altima as the fifth best seller for the month. (The Camry was the best selling car, followed by the Corolla.) 

While the Wrangler took top sales honors for body-on-frame SUVs and the Ram increased its market share, February saw a surprising number of small cars in the sales top 20: the Corolla, Altima, Civic, Focus, Elantra, and Cobalt were all represented. Trucks still sold better on the whole, with the F-series, Silverado, Ram, and Tacoma all appearing – the Tacoma at #20 with one third the sales of the F-series pickups. The Tundra did not make the list.
