USA 2004: Best year ever for the Ford F-Series!

Ford F-Series

2004 will be remembered as the year the Ford F-Series reached its best-ever volume. At 939,511 units, Ford’s best-selling truck is up 11% on 2003 and lodges a record year for the nameplate, on sale since 1948 in the country. So a benchmark year for the automobile industry in the US! This is however not an all-time record, with the Chevrolet Impala still holding the title of biggest yearly volume in the US with over 1 million units in 1965. The F-Series reached 99,720 sales in September and 95,392 in December, its 2nd and 3rd best months ever.

Chevrolet Silverado

The Chevrolet Silverado stays #2 with sales down 1% at 680,768 units. The Toyota Camry is the best-selling passenger car in the country for the 3rd year in a row and back on the podium at #3 with 426,990 sales (+3%). The Dodge Ram is down 1 spot to #4 (-5%) while the Honda Accord (#5), Ford Explorer (#6) and Toyota Corolla (#7) all hold onto their 2003 ranking.

Notice the Ford Taurus kicked out of the Top 10 for the first time in…actually probably ever! Newcomers in the Top 30 include the Chevrolet Malibu up 13 spots to #20, the Toyota Sienna up 21 spots to #25 and the Dodge Durango up 12 spots to #30.
