Flat sales continue to plague the industry.

Analysts projected yet another unimpressive sales month for June, and returns so far seem to back up those forecasts. As has been the trend so far in 2017, June was another decent month for plenty of premium subsidiaries, with Infiniti, Acura and Buick putting up especially solid months.

Volume manufacturers also continued the trend of mixed results. Toyota and Nissan both had marginally better Junes than they did a year ago, while Honda, Chevrolet and Ford fell off a bit. Hyundai and Kia are both continuing to slide as well, which is likely attributable to their lack of fresh CUV/SUV model lineups.

Mercedes-Benz managed to hold on to the luxury auto sales crown, edging out BMW by just 32 units on the month. The yearly race is a bit less tight, with BMW falling behind by some 20,000 units and Lexus pulling up the rear by a pretty significant margin.

Volkswagen seems to be rebounding toward its pre-Dieselgate volume thanks to Alltrack and some surprising (and likely heavily incentivized, given the current state of sedan sales) numbers from Jetta. Atlas also appeared for the first time on the company's books in June, contributing more than 2,400 units by itself.

On the pickup front, Chevrolet's Silverado lineup managed to maintain a gap ahead of Ram with a surprisingly strong month, but the latter sits only 12,000 units behind in total volume. GMC is likely capable of spending its way ahead of FCA for the remainder of the year if it so chooses, but whether that will happen remains to be seen.
