February proved to be another mixed month for automakers, as harsh weather in parts of the country continued to dent sales for some, though others were able to find some diamonds in the rough. Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FIATY.PK) was able to tack on some solid growth thanks to big gains in its Ram and Jeep brands, while Nissan (NSANY.PK) also experienced strong year-on-year growth.

Life was harder for domestic manufacturers, however. Ford’s (NYSE:F) namesake brand struggled, and decent growth in Lincoln wasn’t enough to offset it. For General Motors (NYSE:GM), Buick was the only family of brands to experience positive growth, as Chevrolet, GMC, and Cadillac suffered declines compared to February 2013.

Toyota (NYSE:TM) struggled as well, as did Honda (NYSE:HMC), implying that the cold weather reverberations were felt beyond Detroit.

However, for the best-selling vehicles of February, there were a few surprises among the usual suspects. See where they ranked after the jump.
