The Ford F-Series leads the US models ranking for the 26th time in a row with 680,589 sales, down 13%, however the fight with the Chevrolet Silverado was a little less one-sided this year. The F-Series peaked at 71,481 units in March, but the Silverado managed to rank #1 in February and May and otherwise trailed the Ford very closely throughout the year, peaking at 67,486 sales in August.

The Toyota Camry is the best-selling passenger car in the US for the 6th year in a row, up 5% to 473,108 sales, still to this date its highest ever year-end volume in the country. It peaked at 50,126 units in May. The Honda Accord, thanks to the new generation launched this year, reclaims its #2 passenger car spot at 392,231 units, up 11%. It peaked at 47,360 sales in August, the only time it managed to pass the Camry in the monthly ranking.

Toyota Tundra

2007 is the year Toyota nailed trucks. The new generation Tundra is the first Japanese pick-up truck to break into the monthly US Top 10, ranking #9 in July with 23,150 sales. It finishes the year at #13 with 196,255 sales, up 58% and 24 spots.

Toyota Prius

2007 is also the year Toyota nailed hybrids… The Prius also breaks into the US Top 10 for the first time, up to #9 in May at 24,009 units, and ranks 14th over the full year with 181,221 sales, up 69% and 31 spots. Other great performers this year include the Honda CR-V, up 29% and 10 spots to #10 and 219,160 units, the BMW 3 Series, up 19% and 14 spots to #25 and 142,490 sales. The best newcomer in the Top 50 is the Ford Edge launched in December 2006, ranking #32 at 130,125 units.
