As expected, the year 2010 marked a turnaround for Detroit’s Big-3 automakers.  Chrysler, Ford and GM all reported nice spikes in sales.

Here are the numbers for new vehicle sales for core models in 2010 compared to 2009.

GM sales shot up by about 21%.  Ford enjoyed an increase of about 19% and sales rose at Chrysler by about 17%.

More specifically, GM is still sorting out the final numbers for 2010 but it would appear as if they sold 2.2 million.  Ford sold roughly 1.9 million vehicles and Chrysler sold 1.1 million.  These figures represent U.S. sales only.

The Big-3 also reported sales increases from December of 2009 to the past year.  In fact, December appears to have been the best month of the year for many models.  And there’s little doubt that 2010 was the best year for Detroit automakers since the great recession hit America.
