With such a wide range of results and relatively flat sales for the industry overall, analysts have not yet established a consensus on their full-year outlook.

Many automakers experienced another tough month for US sales, though a few companies emerged with double-digit gains.

Among Detroit's Big Three, General Motors was the big winner with GMC and Chevrolet gains more than offsetting a slide in Buick and Cadillac sales. Ford ended up down for the month, despite a nine-percent jump for Lincoln, while Ram was the only Fiat Chrysler Automobiles brand to achieve positive growth.

The luxury segment experienced an even wider spread. Audi topped the list with a 17-percent climb, more than doubling Mercedes-Benz' growth rate, while BMW was nearly flat for the month.

Lexus sales dropped by nearly 21 percent, slightly worse than Acura's 15-percent falloff, but Infiniti managed to post a 33-percent climb. Jaguar's deliveries skyrocketed by 130 percent, thanks to the F-Pace.
