The Best Selling Cars in the United States for 2016

Are you thinking about buying a new vehicle, but you’re not really sure what vehicle is right for you? Whether you plan to go the popular route, or go against the grain, it doesn’t hurt to get an idea as to what cars are flying off dealer’s lots, and what cars are being left behind.

It is important to note that a car’s sales numbers are not always indicative of performance and quality. In fact, every year there are a few diamonds in the rough that simply don’t have the sales numbers to match the overall quality of the car and some with high insurance rates. In any case, we’ve compiled a list of the best selling cars over the past month to assist you as you begin or continue your search for the perfect car for your needs.

Ford F-Series

1. Ford F-Series

With gas prices continuing to drop thanks to a quiet Atlantic hurricane season, pickup trucks have seen a very healthy boost in sales. The Ford F-Series leads the way, and comes in as the number one selling vehicle over the past month. It nearly doubled the sales of its closest competitor, with just over 60,000 pickups moving off the lot and into the driveways of new car owners.

The Ford F-150 comes available n 5 different types of engine: A 3.7L V6, a 3.5L V6 EcoBoost, a 5.0L V8, a 6.2L V8, and a 6.2L V8 SVT Raptor. It has been highly regarded in each review that has been published, as experts and drivers alike love its well-built interior and top-notch material quality.

Chevrolet Silverado

2. Chevrolet Silverado

Coming in at number two is the Chevrolet Silverado. This pickup enjoyed just over 31,000 sales in the past month, allowing it to narrowly beat out the Toyota Camry for the runner-up slot. Like the Ford F-150, the 2017 model Silverado has enjoyed some stellar reviews. While many consider its design to be a bit dated, there’s no denying that the Silverado has excellent towing and hauling capabilities. It also has a powerful engine, and a very comfortable interior. One could only imagine how well the Silverado would be selling if it had a more up-to-date looking exterior and interior.

Toyota Camry

3. Toyota Camry

As the first non-pickup truck vehicle on the best selling list, the Toyota Camry continues to enjoy yet another successful year. The car has sold well all year, and it will continue to sell well due to its top reliability rating and superior fuel economy. While the 2014 model will hit dealers’ lots fairly soon, the 2017 model is sure to hit solid sales numbers. In the last month, more than 30,000 Camrys were sold. While the Camry isn’t doing the numbers that the F-150 is, Toyota and its loyal customers have plenty of reasons to be optimistic when it comes to the 2017 model.

4. Ram Pickup

As the number one rated pickup truck on the market, it is surprising to see the Ram Pickup coming in at number four on this list (behind the F-150 and Silverado). The Ram Pickup has enjoyed superior customer ratings, and it has garnered a great deal of praise thanks to its great fuel economy, comfortable ride, and well-built interior. Just under 30,000 Ram Pickups were sold in the past month.

Honda Accord

5. Honda Accord

Not to be outdone by its competitor, the Camry, the Honda Accord checks in at number 5 on this list with roughly 25,000 Accords being sold in the past month and also the most stolen vehicle. The 2017 Honda Accord is widely considered to equal to the Camry. It has one of the industry’s best safety ratings, and the car is one of the most reliable on the market. However, many aren’t overly thrilled about its most recent redesign, which could be the reason for it lagging slightly behind the Camry in terms of recent sales.
