US sales: September 2017, models

After discussing the US auto brand sales ranking for September, let’s zoom in on the models ranking.

Top 10

For the fifth time in the past nine months there’s no sedan in the Top 5, as behind the traditional three pick up trucks we find two crossovers. The Ford F-series improves more than 21% to top 80,000 sales for the second time this year, and for only the third September ever. It’s also the third-best month in the last decade for the pick up truck, after December 2016 and December 2015. The Chevy Silverado improves by a similar figure to its best September in a decade, while the Ram Pickup stays behind with a small loss. After two consecutive months of new volume records, the Toyota RAV4 takes a breather to make this month its second-best ever after August. It’s also the third straight month of 40,000+ sales for the nameplate, a figure it had never reached before. This keeps it ahead of its rival Nissan Rogue, which sets its third-best ever month, after December 2016 and last March. Keep in mind these figures now include sales of the Rogue Sport, a.k.a. Qashqai in Europe, which Nissan unfortunately does not split, despite it really being two different models. That leaves Honda as the first brand whose best seller is still a sedan, as the Civic outsells the CR-V thanks to a gain of almost 26% for the former vs. a loss of almost 3% for the latter despite a new generation. In the struggling mid-sized sedan segment, the Toyota Camry remains on top with its second consecutive month of double digit gains, while the all-new Honda Accord still needs to gain momentum in customer deliveries.

Top 10-50

Chevy Equinox

Once again, the Chevrolet Equinox is the best performer in the top-50 with a gain of more than 80% thanks to the new generation. It outsells the Ford Escape for the third time this year. Other notable performers are the Toyota Highlander at +36.3% and the Nissan Sentra with a gain of almost 40%. The latter’s gain is explained by Nissan by claiming it has pulled out of the incentive game in the lower end of the midsized segment with the Altima (down almost 34% to #21) and instead focused its marketing on the Sentra, as a better equipped compact sedan delivers more margin than a basic midsized sedan at a similar price point. New generations of the Subaru XV Crosstrek and Chevrolet Traverse help those nameplates to gains of just over 50% each, while the new generation Jeep Compass sells 75% more than the previous version last year, but when combined with the Patriot, which is also replaced by the new Compass, sales are actually down by 29% as the Patriot had its second-best ever month in September 2016 with over 12,000 sales, but is not down to #164 with less than 2,000 sales. The Hyundai Tucson enjoys its 5th consecutive month of 10,000+ sales, whereas it had never passed that threshold before. The Mazda CX-5 gains 32.6% thanks to the new model and moves up to #30.

Not all models are winners, and besides the aforementioned Altima, we also see depressed figures for the Hyundai Sonata (-35.6% at #47), which is outsold by its platform sibling Kia Optima (#46) for only the second time ever after last June, and for its smaller sister Hyundai Elantra (-25.7% at #25). After losing more than half of its volume in August, the Jeep Cherokee slightly recovers in September but is still down 29% on its sales of last year.

Top 50-100

Nissan Armada

Among the best performers in the top 50-100 were the Nissan Armada (up 160% to #89) and the Nissan Titan (up 52% to #99) which both benefit from their second generations having arrived in showrooms since last year, while the Nissan Frontier is down by almost 33% as the brand has given the antediluvian model yet another minor update before finally launching an all-new generation next year. Other big winners in September were the GMC Terrain (+61,2% at #55 thanks to the new generation) and the Cadillac XT5 with a gain of 58.5% in 66th place, making this the third consecutive month that the XT5 by itself sells more than all of the brand’s sedan models combined.

The Dodge Durango is up 45% to #72, just behind the Dodge Journey, which loses almost half of its volume and is down to #71 and now also in the red year-to-date. The Jeep Renegade has a stellar month after showing some signs of struggling pace in recent months. The smallest of Jeeps gained 38% in September, moving into 51st place. Also worth mentioning: the Nissan Maxima (#57) is back into the black YTD after its 28% increase in September, which was the 5th time this year it outsold its rival Chevrolet Impala (stable in 68th place). Continued low gas prices hurt the Toyota Prius, as the nameplate is down by more than a quarter in 52nd place. The plug-in version, now called Prius Prime, is the only version to improve on last year, when the previous generation sold only a handful of units, but the other 3 versions are all down by siginificant figures.

Other notable developments

The BMW 5-series showed strong form thanks to its new generation, closing in on the top-100 with sales up 144%. The venerable GMC Savana (#106) wants to let the world know it’s still not dead yet, more than tripling its sales of last year, Toyota iA sees its sales rise by over 160%, suggesting that Toyota was right to shut down its Scion brand and take over its more successful cars. Further down, the new Volvo XC60 is clearly a hit with the buyers, and comes very close to outselling its glamorous big sister XC90, something it hasn’t done in almost two years, while their Volvo S90 sister continues to gather more and more sales. After a low summer, when sales dipped below 1,000 per month, Infiniti QX30 is also back in the groove, while the new generations of Porsche Panamera and Kia Cadenza are enjoying sales growth of over 100%.

On the other side, sales of the Dodge Grand Caravan have collapsed to just over 3,000 in September, the first time in many years they have been this low, as the geriatric van that was scheduled to finally go out of production has gotten a new lease on life when FCA realized the new Chrysler Pacifica is too expensive to appeal to the bottom end of the minivan market (read: fleet buyers and rental companies). However, the current Caravan does not meet the stricter crash test standards that have just gone into effect because it was never designed to be fitted with side airbags. Production has been stopped temporarily to redesign the van to equip it with those side airbags and it will be continued for at least one more Model Year. September was also a very bad month for Ford Expedition and BMW X3, suggesting that consumers may be holding out till the new models arrive in showrooms. No such excuses for Chevrolet CorvetteChevrolet Volt and Cadillac XTS, all of which suffered uncharacteristically bad months, while the collapse in sales of the old VW Tiguan calls into question just how long VW plans to keep the older model around now that the new Tiguan L has successfully entered the market.

New nameplates

September did not see any new nameplates make their debut, but the one from last month, Range Rover Velar, did extremely well with sales of over 1,200 in just its second month on the market. September was also a very good month for VW’s two new SUVs, with the Atlas breaking into the Top 100 for the first time with just over 4,000 unit sales, while the VW Tiguan L achieved its best ranking yet at 114th spot with just over 3,000 sales. Chevrolet Bolt also sets another new record with just over 2,600 sales, cracked 2,000 units for the first time as the model is now available to buy in all US states. The sales figures are less good for the Alfa twins, with the (slow) rise in sales of the Stelvio barely making up for the fall in sales of its Giulia sister.

About Krzysztof Wozniak

Kriss grew up in Poland reading German car magazines, before moving to England and graduating to the British magazines, which he still considers the best in the world and continues reading them after he'd moved to the US. In college he promised himself he's buy himself a used Porsche before he turned 30 (not to be accused of having a mid-life crisis), but instead family needs dictated a Subaru Outback. Still waiting for that perfect moment to buy a used 2008-ish Cayman...

  1. Juicy video’s on YT showcasing the archetype Pick -Up Driver involved in a “Road Rage” incident.

    Given the zillion bold, white, fifty something gents dragging their belly fat from mall to stadium to bar use these monster trucks in a “Don’t Mess With Me – Me King!” attitude, incidents seem to be abound. Hilarious. Until someone draws a gun. Or 6000 lbs of truck veers of the road, leaving 280 pounds of blubbery Yank a visitor of his own movie.

    Sorry, watched a few episodes of Family Guy lately 😉

  2. Speaking of Size does Matter:
    The recent Belly Bentayga struggles: – 41%
    Idem the new Maserati Ghibli: -18% (-16% YTD) and Bimmer X6

  3. Hi Kris,

    There’s a couple of month’s data missing for the Jaguar F-PACE (unless they just haven’t sold any :-)).

Let me know what you think of this article. Thanks!
