The 21 Best-Selling Cars In America (F, GM)

These cars moved even in a slower market...take a look now

   

U.S. automakers closed out 2013 with weak sales figures, reporting a seasonally-adjusted sales rate of 15.6 million units in December when analysts called for 16.0 million.

Chrysler and Ford (F) were in the green, but both missed analyst expectations. GM tanked 6.3% when analysts were looking for a 1.5% gain.

“An expected post-Christmas surge in [light vehicle] sales fell somewhat short of industry expectations,” according to Wards Auto.

“Renewed upside was expected in the second half of the month, but overall December sales may show a 5% pullback after jumping 8% in November,” Morgan Stanley’s Ted Wieseman wrote clients.
