Building on a strong January, February new-car sales increased 5.3 percent, compared to a year ago. Though difficult weather conditions maintained throughout much of the country, which put a small damper on overall sales, consumers braved the winter cold to buy up new vehicles in record numbers. Bolstered by consistently low gas prices and positive home construction trends, truck sales rose steadily across the board, with the Ford F-Series, Chevrolet Silverado and Ram Pickup claiming three of the top five slots in this month’s list of best sellers.
February closed with more than 1.2 million new-vehicles sold and a SAAR of 16.24 million. Though the month was tempered by inclement weather, the industry is well on track for a sixth consecutive year of new-car sales growth.
