The Camry looks like it will once again finish the year as the best-selling passenger car in America. Here are the top 10:
The long-running sales champ in the U.S. is still the clear No. 1 in 2013, despite newly redesigned trucks from Chevrolet and Ram. Ford’s F-150 sales are up almost 20 percent for the year, thanks to a rebound in the housing industry.
Chevrolet’s long-overdue redesign of its Silverado was well-timed to coincide with a rebound in housing, which fuels pickup truck sales. Sales are up 19.7 percent through October.
Toyota’s mid-sized flagship is still the best-selling passenger car in America.
Honda Accord sales are up 11 percent following last year’s redesign.
Ram sales are up 22.5 percent thanks to bold new styling, advanced technology and improved gas mileage. Sales are growing even faster than the red-hot market for pickups.
America’s best-selling small car got pushed down the list by stronger-selling pickups, but Civic sales are still up 10.3% for the year.
The mid-sized car segment is one of the industry’s most competitive, but Nissan’s competent Altima is always near the top of the heap.
Toyota’s trusty compact got a makeover for the 2014 model year as Toyota vowed to make its cars more emotional. Corolla/Matrix sales are up 5.6% for the year.
Honda’s CRV is the leader in the hot market for compact crossover utilities, but it’s fighting off strong contenders, including the redesigned Ford Escape.
Ford’s curvy redesign of the Escape crossover is a hit with consumers, with sales up 14 percent so far this year. It’s closing in on the segment leader, Honda CR-V. It’ll be a dogfight to the end.
