Cruze sales leader for GM

Chevry Cruze has banner year in 2014.

LORDSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) – While General Motors saw slacking sales over all for January , the Chevrolet Cruze continues to break sales records.

GM reported Monday that January sales of the Lordstown-built Cruze were up 16 percent over the same period last year. The compact car sold 16,828 units, compared with 14,524 last January.

Overall, GM sales were down 12 percent last month. The other two top-selling U.S. companies, Ford and Toyota, also saw their sales drop with the temperatures in January.

The Cruze continued to be GM’s second-best selling vehicle. It trailed only the Chevrolet Silverado pickup, which was named the North American Truck of the Year at last month’s North American International Auto Show.
