2022 GMC Sierra 1500 Denali Ultimate
DETROIT – General Motors reclaimed its American sales crown from Toyota Motor last year when the Detroit automaker posted a small gain in its annual U.S. car sales despite supply chain problems.
GM said Wednesday it sold 2.27 million vehicles in the U.S. in 2022, up 2.5% from 2021[ads1], including a 41.4% increase during the fourth quarter. Analysts expect total US auto industry sales to fall between 8% and 10% last year compared to 2021.

Toyota said it sold 2.1 million vehicles in the U.S. last year, down 9.6 percent from 2021.
Toyota edged out GM in sales by 114,034 vehicles in 2021 — dethroning the Detroit automaker for the first time since 1931 when it surpassed Ford Motor. Toyota executives previously said the top sales spot was unattainable, but CEO Akio Toyoda told dealers last year he did a “happy dance” when he heard the news.
