Best-Selling Cars and Trucks in America

Each and every month, we see a similar story playing out on sales floors across the United States. People flock to dealerships in near record numbers to buy new vehicles, and more of them are choosing fullsize pickup trucks than anything else.

Generally low fuel prices are a big contributing factor to the popularity of these not-so-eco-friendly choices, to be sure, but we also understand the desire for a modern truck – these do-it-all machines are equally as adept comforting passengers as they are hauling heavy loads.

The list of best-sellers looks mostly as we’ve come to expect, though the finishing order shuffled a bit. Behind the top trucks, where midsize sedans used to thrive, we see the effects of the crossover’s rise to prominence, taking over as the family car of choice. But compact and midsize sedans still sell well enough to make an appearance in the top 10.

Without further ado, click through to see the most popular cars in the US.

10. Chevy Equinox

October 2017 Sales: 25,272
Change vs. prior year: +28.5%

Sitting at number 10 is the Chevrolet Equinox, a crossover that was completely redesigned for 2018 with a lighter body (by 400 lbs) and chassis, and three new turbocharged engines. A turbocharged 1.5-liter four-cylinder serves as the base engine, and a 1.6-liter turbodiesel that will be available later this summer will be the economy leader. In-between is a 2.0-liter four-cylinder gas engine that replaces the old model’s V6.

October 2017 Sales: 26,252

The Toyota Camry appeals to the average car buyer with its safety, fuel economy, exterior looks and standard features. A standard 2.5-liter four-cylinder puts out 203 horsepower and 184 pound-feet of torque and estimated fuel economy of 28 mpg city, 39 mpg highway, and 32 mpg combined. An optional 3.5-liter V6 makes 301 hp and 267 lb-ft. Finally, a hybrid delivers 51 mpg city, 53 mpg highway, and 52 mpg combined – essentially the same as most Prius trim levels.

7. Honda CR-V

October 2017 Sales: 27,773
Change vs. prior year: -8.4%

The Honda CR-V is roomy and versatile, which is great for today’s family on the go. Major updates mean more space inside for passengers and cargo, a bit more power and efficiency from a new 1.5-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine, and a quieter, more comfortable driving experience. The previous CR-V was already one of the best vehicles in its class, and the fully redesigned 2017 CR-V remains the best bet for your buck.</span>

1. Ford F-Series

October 2017 Sales: 75,974
Change vs. prior year: +15.90%

The latest Ford F-150 represents a revolutionary step forward in the full-size pickup truck market.

The all-aluminum body and pickup box shaves up to 700 lb. from the curb weight and the availability of four efficient gasoline engines paired to a 6-speed automatic transmission provides remarkable fuel economy.

The F-150 is available with three cab styles (regular, super and crew) with either a 4×2 or 4×4 drive train and three pickup box lengths. Five distinct trims include the XL, XLT, Lariat, King Ranch and Platinum. Four engine choices are available: an all-new 3.3-liter V6, a 325-hp 2.7-liter EcoBoost V6, a 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 with 375 horsepower and 470 pound-feet of torque, and a 395-hp 5.0-liter flex-fuel V8.
