Taking a glance at the Bloomberg industry analyst roundup for December car sales reveals one obvious expected winner in Chrysler, who may have sold as many as 25% more cars last month than December 2013. That's huge if it's true and bodes well for the industry as a whole.
This time last year we were talking about slow sales thanks to a winter that never wanted to end, but since about March auto sales have done nothing but climb. With the exception of Ford (who hasn't fully pushed out Mustangs and F-150s yet), every major car company is expected to see an increase and the seasonally adjusted selling rate should hit 16.9 million, up 1.4 million year-over-year.
It's a good time to be selling cars.
