Chevrolet Cruze overtakes the mighty Camry to be the best-selling vehicle in America
The Chevrolet Cruze has hit the No. 1 spot in the list of U.S. best-selling vehicles in June. The Toyota Camry which held the No. 1 spot for sometime lost its top spot when the March 11 Japan disaster struck and supplies fell. The Camry still made it to the list even if sales had fallen by 27.7% compared to last June. It ranked No. 4 and the only Japanese vehicle in the top 10 list.
However, Toyota is confident that the Camry will regain the top spot once again since production will soon normalize and also the redesigned Camry for 2012 is expected to roll out in a few months. Not one of Honda’s or Nissan’s models was able to reach the top 10 list. The Civic, which ranked 15th, is the highest Honda placed vehicle. Chevy’s new Malibu sedan ranked fourth overall as its sales placed it behind the Cruze. The updated 2013 model will start selling in the first quarter of 2012, only a few months after the release of the new Camry.
