Auto sales maintain momentum, led by pickups

Posted: Updated:
DETROIT, Mich. -

U.S. buyers snapped up new cars and trucks in June at a pace not seen since before the recession.

Continuing demand for big pickups helped boost sales for Detroit's automakers. Ford said that its sales rose 14 percent, while Chrysler's gained 8 percent and General Motors' rose 6.5 percent.

Japanese automakers reported solid gains as well. Nissan's sales jumped 13 percent, while Toyota's were up 10 percent. But Volkswagen's sales dropped 3 percent, the third straight monthly decline for the German car company.

Other automakers will report sales today.
