Canada 2003: Ford F-Series back to #1 above Honda Civic

The Ford F-Series reclaims the top spot in Canada.

The Canadian new light vehicle market slides -4.9% in 2003 to 1.613.299 units, still estimated to be the 2nd largest annual volume in history below last year. Market leader Ford (+1.5%) defies the market decline to improve to 15.5% share whereas Chevrolet (-7.6%) falls faster to 12.4% while Toyota (+7.9%) ignores the depressed context to shoot up to a record third place with 9.7% share, distancing Dodge (-6.7%). Honda (-5.2%) and Pontiac (-14.5%). GMC (-6.7%) bypasses Mazda (-24.7%) and Nissan (+6.8%) is the only other Top 10 carmaker in positive.

In the models ranking, the Ford F-Series (+6.3%) reclaims the top spot for the first time since 1999 with the Honda Civic (-5.2%) remaining at #2. Leader of the past 3 years, the Dodge Caravan (-26%) freefalls to #3. The Toyota Corolla (+8.7%) claims the #2 passenger car spot off the Chevrolet Cavalier (-23.1%) and also overtakes the Mazda Protege (-22.1%) and Pontiac Sunfire (-22.3%). The Dodge Ram (+11.3%) is up 5 spots to #8, posting the largest gain in the Top 14. The Chevrolet Impala (+25%) and Ford Escape (+15.9%) also make themselves noticed in the Top 25.
