US Auto Sales rose a little in June 2015 ending the almost positive first half with one of the best level ever at 8.5 million sales. Jeep, Chrysler and Nissan shine among brands while Silverado reduced the gap from F Series.

Economic Outlook

Recent data suggest that the U.S. economy rebounded as expected in Q2 after a notably weak Q1 showing. In May, payroll growth surged to a five-month high, retail sales accelerated and consumer confidence recovered slightly after a large loss in April.

These developments, alongside relatively low energy prices, point to an increase in consumer spending, which is the main driver of the economy. In contrast, even though the ISM manufacturing index picked up in May, a flash PMI estimate for June points to ongoing sluggishness in the manufacturing sector, due in part to the effect of a strong dollar on export competitiveness as well as slow growth in global demand.
