USA Vehicles October Sales Chevrolet-Equinox-2018

USA Vehicles October Sales were dragged down by harsh declines at the Ford Motor Company and Fiat Chrysler Automobiles. Chevrolet was the best selling brand, first time in the year.

Market Outlook

The U.S. economy seems to be back on track for robust growth in Q3, as monthly indicators strengthened in September following August’s overall cooldown. Dynamics in private consumption are intact, as evidenced by September’s rise in consumer confidence to a pre-crisis high and an uptick in retail sales. Trump’s victory increase policy uncertainty and lead the U.S. into unchartered waters.

U.S. auto sales were dragged down by harsh declines at the Ford Motor Company and Fiat Chrysler Automobiles ending the long period of strong growth reported under the President Obama, with market growth from 10 to 18 millions in sixth years.

In October sales had been 1.370.721, down 5.8% while the Year to date sales have been 14.474.000, down 0.2% from the last year
