The Hilux claws its way back to #1 in February at 7.3% share but with January at #9 it is #2 YTD at 1,086 units and 5.1%.

Mitsubishi Pajero

The Nissan D22 pick-up rounds up the podium in February with 641 sales and 5.9% and is now #5 year-to-date at 3.1% vs. #15 and 1.4% in 2011. The Mitsubishi Pajero also performs really well: #4 in January at 3.8% and #5 in February at 2.7% vs. #12 over the Full Year 2011.

    Paul :
    Which Crown Victoria is that? I thought the classic (sic) rear drive Crown Vic was gone and I didn’t think the name was still active.

    It is still the old one. A few remainders are still around.
