USA Full Year 2021: Exclusive State by State rankings now available

The Jeep Grand Cherokee is #1 in the state of New York.

After a one-year hiatus and in partnership with JATO Dynamics, we can share with you today separate rankings of the Top 10 best-selling vehicles for each U.S. State over the Full Year 2021. This data is exclusive to BSCB, you won’t find it anywhere else. The methodology for this ranking is different from the monthly U.S. data we publish, with pickup variants counted separately – which makes a lot of sense as they are basically different vehicles altogether. This way, the Ford F-Series is split into F-150, F-250 Super Duty, F-350 Super Duty and up, the Chevrolet Silverado into 1500, 2500HD and up, Ram 1500, 2500 and up, etc.

Light trucks win 50 out of 52 states vs. 49 in 2019 and 2018, 47 in 2017, 45 in 2016, 43 in 2015 and 39 in 2014. Among these trucks, 30 wins go to pickups vs. 36 in 2019 and 19 go to crossovers vs. 14 in 2019 and 16 in 2018. Like in 2019 and 2018, only two cars win a state: the Toyota Corolla in Florida and Camry in Oklahoma vs. 4 in 2017, 6 in 2016, 8 in 2015 and 12 in 2014. One van is #1 in one state this year.

The Ford F-150 wins 26 states in 2021.

Like in 2018 and 2019, there are no States with no light truck in the Top 5. Two states have only pickups in their Top 5 (Louisiana and Wyoming) vs. 3 in 2019. 6 states have no pickup in their Top 5 vs. 5 in 2019: California, Connecticut, District of Columbia, Massachusetts, New Jersey and Virginia. Louisiana, Michigan, Missouri and North Dakota, South Dakota and Wyoming only have U.S. models in their Top 5 vs. just 2 in 2019. There are no states with no U.S. model in its Top 5 vs. one in 2019 (California).

The Ford F-150 is once again the most prolific winner in 2021 with 26 state wins but this number is in decline vs. 28 in 2019 and 31 in 2018 and 2017. Reversely the Toyota RAV4 continues to add to its tally at 10 state wins vs. 8 in 2019, 7 in 2018 and 5 in 2017. The Honda CR-V also progresses at 7 state wins vs. 4 in both 2019 and 2018. The Chevrolet Silverado 1500 manages to notch two state wins this year. All other state winners have only one win: the Ram 1500 (Alaska), Toyota Corolla (Florida), Toyota Tacoma (Hawaii), Toyota Camry (Oklahoma), Tesla Model Y (California), Mercedes Sprinter (New Hampshire) and Jeep Grand Cherokee (New York).

The Ram 2500 is #2 in Utah.

Looking at the heavy duty pickup segment, we notice the Ram 2500 #2 in Utah, #3 in Wyoming and #4 in Alaska and Oklahoma, the Ford F-250 Super Duty #4 in Missouri and Texas and #5 in Kansas and Louisiana, the Ford F-350 Super Duty #4 in Montana and #5 in Wyoming and the Chevrolet Silverado 2500 HD #4 in Utah.
