NADA Used Car Guide News & Analysis
NADA continually gathers and analyzes the latest automotive industry trends in order to keep you informed and to provide crucial guidance for every business decision on the purchase, sale, loan, lease or assessment of a used vehicle. We publish monthly NADA Guidelines, which recaps industry activity, predicts what lies ahead in the marketplace and explains movement in the used vehicle valuation market. Also every month our executive automotive analysts present comprehensive video market overviews and blogs based on this extensive knowledge base and expertise.
The good news never ends―well, at least for the U.S. automotive retail market. January light vehicle sales came in at over 1.1 million units, up almost 14% from January 2014. It is very hard to imagine a better start to the year than a SAAR of 16.56 million. Our light vehicle sales forecast is unchanged at 16.94 million units. Our segment forecast expects a split of 56% light trucks and 44% cars. Even in a growing market, we expect small cars and midsize cars to lose some marginal volumes. Luxury cars will hold their own, but the real growth will be in pickups, CUVs (compact utility vehicles) and SUVs (though CUVs and SUVs are largely indistinguishable now).
