Ford F Series

Trucks are back in fashion this year in the US: for the first time in over decade they monopolise the podium. The Ford F-Series is in the lead again, up 4% at 845,586 units thanks to the new generation arriving in dealerships this year. The Chevrolet Silverado stays #2 with 684,302 sales, up 5% and the Dodge Ram is up 3 spots to #3 at 449,371 units, up an impressive 13%.

Dodge Ram

The Toyota Camry keeps its best-selling passenger car title albeit losing one spot and 5% to 413,296 sales. The Honda Accord is stable in 5th place at 397,750 units while the Ford Explorer is down 2 spots to #6 with 373,118 sales. Below the Toyota Corolla breaking into the Top 10 at #7, the Ford Taurus, still the best-selling US passenger car, continues to slow down slowly but surely to #8 at 300,496 units, down 10%.
