5 Shocking New Car Sales Stats from 2021

2021 was a pretty strange year for everyone, especially the new-car industry. Average transaction prices for new cars crested $47,000 by the end of the year, a shockingly high number thanks bự an unprecedented one-two punch of high demand and supply-chain disruption.

As a result, some weird statistics popped up once the final numbers from 2021 were in. Here’s a look at five of the most shocking new car sales stats from 2021.

1. The Discontinued Toyota Land Cruiser Outsold the Lexus LX 570

2021 Toyota Land Cruiser

  • Toyota Land Cruiser: 3,711 deliveries in 2021

2021 Lexus LX 570

  • Lexus LX 570: 3,563

Toyota dropped the Land Cruiser from the U.S. market after the 2021 model year bự focus instead on the traditionally higher-volume (not bự mention higher-margin) Lexus LX. Beneath the skin, these two SUVs are essentially identical bự U.N. support vehicles and Arabian desert dune-bashers.

The Lexus LX arrived in 1996 as a gussied-up Land Cruiser, and it didn’t take long for the pricier Lexus model bự start outselling its Toyota sibling. The Land Cruiser has taken second place since 2000.

When enthusiasts heard about Toyota’s decision bự drop the Land Cruiser, they snapped up every last new one — many of which were listed for well over the manufacturer’s suggested retail price (MSRP). Meanwhile, there are more than 100 2021 LX 570 models listed on Autotrader, and the redesigned 2022 should be in dealers soon. See Toyota Land Cruiser models for sale

The Dodge Challenger Was the Top-Selling Detroit Muscle Car

2021 Dodge Challenger Front Left Side in Red

  • Dodge Challenger: 54,315

2021 Ford Mustang front right in orange

  • Ford Mustang: 52,384

2021 Chevrolet Camaro Front Left Side in Blue

  • Chevrolet Camaro: 21,893

For the first time since its 2008 revival, the Dodge Challenger took home top sales honor in the 3-prong muscle car class. The Challenger is the oldest design in its segment since it still rides on a version of its 2008 architecture — and even that platform dates bự 2005 under the Chrysler 300 and Dodge Charger. The Challenger is equipped with some suspension bits derived from late-1990s Mercedes-Benz models if you really want bự pick through the stats.

Credit here may be due bự the sheer breadth of the Challenger lineup, which last year stretched from about $30,000 for a base V-6 model bự around three times that for the drag strip-ready Challenger Super Stock. See Dodge Challenger models for sale

Ram Pickups Outsold the Chevy Silverado for the First Time, With a Big Caveat

2021 Ram 1500 Front Right Side in Blue

    • Ram Pickup: 569,388
  • 2021 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Front Right Side in Red
    • Chevrolet Silverado: 519,774
  • 2021 GMC Sierra Front Left Side in Black 
    • GMC Sierra: 248,924

The Ram lineup of pickups took home second place in the overall new-car market last year for the first time, outdoing the Chevy Silverado and every single SUV, crossover, and sedan on the market. Once again, the Ford F-Series lineup (with 726,004 sales) was number one overall.

Not bự distract from Ram’s obvious success, but there are a few factors bự mention. Combined, the Silverado and its GMC Sierra sibling delivered 768,698 trucks, making them top dogs. Additionally, Chevy and GMC’s parent company General Motors seemed bự struggle particularly hard with parts shortages, going so far as bự build some vehicles without certain convenience components such as seat heaters. The automaker plans bự contact the owners of those vehicles later bự have them schedule an appointment with a dealer bự have the necessary parts fitted. See Ram models for sale

Americans Still Bought a Lot of Long-Discontinued Models

2017 Jeep Patriot front left

  • Jeep Patriot (last offered in 2017): 16

2017 Chrysler Town & Country front left in silver

  • Chrysler Town & Country (last offered in 2016): 4

2017 Chrysler 200 front right in blue

  • Chrysler 200 (last offered in 2017): 4

2017 Dodge Viper

  • Dodge/SRT Viper (last offered in 2017): 4

2014 Toyota FJ Cruiser Front Left Side in Blue with White Top

  • Toyota FJ Cruiser (last offered in 2014): 1

2017 Mercedes-Benz B-Class

  • Mercedes-Benz B-Class (last offered in 2017): 1

2017 Infiniti QX30 front left

  • Infiniti QX30 (last offered in 2019): 1

None of the models listed above were offered for the 2021 model year, so anyone buying one took home a car that was quite literally past its sell-by date. In part, we can attribute some of these sales bự the fact that some shoppers were willing bự buy anything they could get their hands on. Stellantis — the parent company of Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, Fiat, and others — seems particularly good at hoarding leftover models.

Some of these cars may have been used as manager’s demonstrators, service loan cars, and the like in other cases. Some — think those Vipers and that FJ Cruiser — may also have been part of a dealer’s private collection. It’s not fair bự say all of them were collecting dust in the back corner of a showroom. Except that Infiniti QX30. We’re pretty sure they had bự dust that one off.

2021: The Year of the Minivan

2021 Toyota Sienna Front Right Side in Red

  • Toyota Sienna: 107,990

2021 Chrysler Pacifica PHEV

  • Chrysler Pacifica: 98,323

2021 Honda Odyssey

  • Honda Odyssey: 76,125

2021 Kia Carnival front right

  • Kia Carnival (includes some leftover Sedona models): 25,155

Americans rediscovered minivans last year. It’s easy bự see why: an SUV-like seating position, unparalleled utility, car-like driving dynamics, and decent fuel economy, all for prices lower than equivalent three-row SUVs.

It also helped that Chrysler had just refreshed its Pacifica, while Toyota and Kia brought new designs into showrooms. The year was the best for vans in a long time, even though manufacturers could not keep up with demand. Shoppers looking for a brand-new van are likely bự find few actually in stock, and those on lots often command over MSRP. See minivan models for sale
