    2018 is on pace to be the worst sales year for cars since 1958. That's not to say, though, that the industry is doing poorly. With SUV and truck sales on the rise, and showing no signs of slowing, passenger cars are an increasingly rare item. In fact, so far, for every car sold in America, two...

    January UK sales figures are in, and Chevrolet is probably not going to be happy with the results. Just one single Chevrolet model was sold for the entire month. Even more strangely, that's better than January 2017. When they sold zero. That puts them in last place for major manufacturers in...
