In the US the 2011 sales figures are as follows (thru March 31) according to cars.com
Ford F Series - 126,627
Chevy Silverado - 92,455
Toyota Camry - 76,821
Toyota Corolla - 76,675
Honda Accord - 71,544
Nissan Altima - 69,551
Ford Fusion - 65,023
Honda Civic - 64,968
Ford Escape - 55,953
Hyundai Sonata - 51,878
At least in this country we only have one GM vehicle in the top ten sales in the last 3 months. Worldwide GM is doing a lot better.
The Japan disaster is already reducing Toyota vehicle sales in April and will likely continue that trend for at least several months. Note that Ford had the most vehicles in the top ten (3) including the top seller.
