Update: Chrysler still #1 domestic builder

by David Zatz on

Gerard Wilson wrote that, as of the end of August, Chrysler remained the leading car and truck producer in both the US and Canada for the 2014 model year.


In the United States, Honda, GM, and Ford are close behind Chrysler, and Honda may well end up as the largest domestic assembler of cars and trucks (although most of their engineering is done in Japan).  In Canada, Chrysler is extending 2014 Chrysler 300 production through November, so they will probably keep the # 1 position for the 2014 model year.

Mr. Wilson does not expect Chrysler to retain its # 1 position in either country for 2015.  He wrote, “The U.S. plants have built in excess of 8.3 million vehicles to 2014 specification, the best year since 1979!”

The U.S. score so far:

  1. Chrysler, 1.34 million
  2. Honda, 1.23 million
  3. GM, 1.22 million
  4. Ford, 1.16 million (AutoAlliance adds 192,000 Mustangs and Fusions; if included, this pushes Ford above GM. While the Flat Rock plant has been renamed, it is still half owned by Mazda.)
  5. Toyota, 0.9 million
  6. Nissan, 0.8 million

In Canada:

  1. Chrysler, 704,989
  2. GM, 625,511
  3. Toyota, 457,931
  4. Honda, 356,356
  5. Ford, 159,320
