Big Pickup Trucks Rule 2016 Auto Sales

With lower gas prices, Americans are now proving how much they adore owning big, new pickup trucks.

The top-selling new vehicles show that Detroit’s Big three automakers are still the king of the road as far as pickup trucks.

Ford’s F-150 is the nation’s best-selling vehicle; General Motors is next with the Chevrolet Silverado, and in third is Fiat Chrysler with their Ram 1500. All three truck sales increased for the year with the Ram truck seeing the biggest improvement, up 8.6%, compared to the same time last year.

The same vehicles were also in the top three places just as solid last year.

In fourth place overall, the nation’s top-selling car is the Toyota Camry. In a serious rivalry, Honda’s redesigned Civic increased sales to 13.6%, pushing out the Toyota Corolla for fifth place.

SUV’s, which are also top sellers, show up in seventh place with the Honda CR-V and the Toyota RAV4 in eighth place. Sales for the CR-V are up 1.5% and the RAV4 rose up to 14.2%.

Finally, the Honda Accord and the Nissan Altima, two midsize sedans, wrap up the Top 10. Before truck sales became popular again, midsize sedans were topping the auto industry. However, as the sales numbers show, they are losing their shine.
