U.S. auto demand

The Camry ranked in third – best-selling car – with 39.888 sales while Corolla ranked 6th retailing 30.833 units.

Chevrolet slipped in third selling 175.155 units with 12.2% of share, down 1.1 points from June. Year to date sales were 1.203.063 with 12.5% of share, flat from year ago. Chevy best model – the Silverado – was flat on last year volumes with 42.097 retails while Equinox was up 0.9% at 25.321.
