SUVs and Pick-up Trucks Continue To Drive US Car Sales

Two Detroit automakers on Friday reported an increase in U.S. auto sales for May as demand for sport-utility vehicles and pickup trucks continues to buoy sales despite rising gas prices. May is often the biggest sales month of the year for auto sales, with Memorial Day sales driving car shoppers to dealerships to kick off the summer selling season.

 

 

SUVs and pickup trucks accounted for about 67% of sales in May, according to J.D. Power, the highest level ever for May. The richer mix of SUVs and pickup trucks, which carry higher prices than passenger cars, drove the average transaction price up nearly $1,200 in May compared to last year, while discounts remained flat at about $3,665 per vehicle, J.D. Power said.

 

 

The shift toward trucks and SUVs continues unabated even though consumers are paying more for gas. Regular gasoline surpassed an average of $2.90 a gallon nationally. And prices are expected to continue to rise and could top $3 a gallon through the summer driving season.

  • Fire Risk: BMW Recalls 185,000 Cars TODAY
    19 Apr 2019

    The recall expansion covers 3 Series, 5 Series and Z4 models from the 2006 model year. The problem has been traced to irregularities in the manufacturing process that could allow moisture to occur near the PCV valve heater and lead to a short circuit. The PCV valve is an emissions device that keeps pollutants created by an engine from being released into the atmosphere. It also helps keep the engine oil clean and prevents crankcase pressure from building up. BMW warns its customers to stop driving the vehicle if there is smoke coming from the engine, or if the driver smells smoke or plast...
