It’s no surprise. Pickup trucks remained the country’s most popular vehicles in 2020.
The Ford-150, Chevrolet Silverado and Ram Pickup 1500 ranked first through third overall among the top-10 best-selling vehicles last year, according to the car engine iSeeCars.com.
The study looked at over 12.9 million vehicle sales in 2020 to determine the most popular vehicles throughout the United States. The data was tabulated nationally, state and metro area.
“The Ford F-150 has been America’s undisputed best-selling new vehicle for over 40 years, and the popularity of pickup trucks help contribute to its high volume of sales,” said Karl Brauer, iSeeCars Executive Analyst.
Three compact SUVs made the list: the fourth-ranked Ford Escape, fifth-ranked Nissan Rogue and eighth-ranked Chevrolet Equinox.
Pickup Trucks Led Auto Sales Again
“Compact SUVs are popular among used car buyers due to their versatility and value,” said Brauer. “Because they have been a rapidly growing segment among new car buyers for so long, there are a lot of these small crossovers available in the used car market.”
Completing the top-10 new car list for 2020 were three sedans: the seventh-ranked Toyota Camry, ninth-ranked Nissan Altima and the tenth-ranked Nissan Sentra.
“These sedans are popular among first-time car buyers who are looking for affordable vehicles, and with commuters, thanks to their strong MPG ratings,” said Brauer.
Here’s the list of the most popular new vehicles in the United States in 2020:
1. Ford F-150; 2. Chevrolet Silverado 1500; 3. Ram Pickup 1500; 4. Ford Escape; 5. Nissan Rogue; 6. Honda Civic; 7. Toyota Camry; 8. Chevrolet Equinox; 9. Nissan Altima; 10. Nissan Sentra.
