Making for a roaring start to 2015, January new-car sales closed the month up 14.8 percent, with the largest seven automakers reporting figures. Demand for pickup trucks, SUVs and small cars drove sales nationwide, with the Ford F-Series retaining its top stop as the leader in total monthly sales.
Cold temperatures across much of the United Sates did little to hinder eager-to-buy shoppers, particularly in comparison to the bitter winter of 2014; however, even with an increased volume of sales, average transaction prices remained largely flat compared to this time last year.
At a make/model-level, the Ford F-Series, Chevrolet Silverado and Ram Pickup were the top three sellers in January nationwide, all posting double-digit gains. And with a January SAAR of 16.7 million units and healthy growth for nearly every manufacturer, signs point to another very positive year for franchise dealerships.
