The Chevrolet Cavalier is the best-selling car in the US in 1984.
New light vehicles in the US score a second consecutive double-digit gain in 1984 at +17.6% to 14.483.141 units including 10.323.695 cars (+12.8%) and 4.159.446 trucks (+31.5%). This is the largest annual volume since 1978 (15.4m), the largest car total since 1979 (10.67m) and the highest ever truck annual sales volume. No doubt the truck figure is helped by a third consecutive year by the Ford F-Series in the overall pole position. The Chevrolet Cavalier overtakes the Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme to become the most popular passenger car in the country this year with 383.752 units.
