Not to be confused with Samoa covered in separate updates, American Samoa is an unincorporated territory of the United States located in the South Pacific and forming the eastern part of the Samoan Islands chain – see exact location on maps below. It consists of five main islands and two coral atolls with a total population of 54.194 as of 2016. American Samoa is the southernmost territory of the U.S. and one of two U.S. territories (with Jarvis Island) south of the Equator.

New car sales in American Samoa are up 6% year-on-year in 2017 to 409 units, and Ford (+7%) is the best-selling manufacturer here with 38.6% share, widening the gap with Toyota (-4%) at 33.3%. Hyundai soars 17% but remains a distant third at 15.4% of the market while Nissan is also impressive at +37% to 11.7%. Being integrated to the U.S., the American Samoan new car landscape differs drastically from that of the rest of the South Pacific nations dominated by Thailand-made pickups such as the Toyota Hilux and Ford Ranger. Instead, similarly to Hawaii the Toyota Tacoma should lead the models charts here followed by the Ford F-Series.
