Automotive industry experts have put on their rosy shades to announce that 2013 will indeed be a fine year for sales of new cars in America. In fact, many analysts are predicting that 2013 will be the year that the total number of new units moved once again reach pre-recession levels.
If these projections are correct, the increase will continue the positive trend that brought smiles to car lots across the nation in 2012. Last year, 14.5 million new cars and light trucks were sold in the U.S., with 1.5 million of them being moved in December.
TrueCar’s Jesse Toprak believes that 15.3 million cars and light trucks will be sold in 2013, while GE Capital is calling its 15.2 million call an “increasingly conservative.”
