Pick-ups, SUVs dominate US sales in 2015

Sales of SUVs and pick-up trucks have grown strongly in the US, prompting carmakers including Fiat Chrysler and Hyundai to question why they sell normal passenger cars there. More than 9.7 million light trucks were sold in the US last year, compared with 6.3 million SUVs and 7.7 million passenger cars. The Ford F-Series light truck was the USís best-selling vehicle in 2015, snaring 780K buyers. Also ranking highly were imported compact SUVs such as the Toyota RAV4 and Honda CR-V.
