- GM surpassed Toyota in 2022 U.S. vehicle sales to record 2.2 million units.
- Toyota will beat out GM in 2021, displacing an American automaker from the top spot for the first time since 1931.
- Chevrolet’s Silverado pickup was the best-selling GM model, and the RAV4 was Toyota’s top.
Order has been restored in the U.S. auto sales competition. After Toyota’s 2021 totals surpassed General Motors and broke GM’s long winning streak since 1931, the American automaker has overtaken his Japanese rival again in 2022. GM will sell his 2,274,088 in 2022 and 165,630.
Three of GM’s four brands will see year-over-year growth in 2022, with Buick the only brand to see a 42% decline. Chevrolet sales increased 6%, GMC sales increased 7% and Cadillac sales increased 13%. Unsurprisingly, the Chevrolet Silverado full-size pickup led the way with 513,354 units sold, followed by Equinox SUVs (up 28% to 212,072 units) and Malibu sedans (up 193% to 115,467 units). GM believes the 2.5% overall increase from 2021 was a combination of strong demand and additional manufacturing capacity.
Toyota, on the other hand, declined almost across the board, citing continued parts shortages that forced it to revise its production plans downwards for the rest of the year. The Toyota brand fell 9% of his, while the Lexus luxury brand fell 15%. The only mass-produced model within Toyota’s portfolio to see sales increase compared to last year was the Tundra full-size pickup, which recorded sales of his 104,246 units, up 27%. The RAV4 compact crossover was Toyota’s top seller, with 399,941 units sold, down 2% compared to 2021.
