America Actually Buying Fewer Massively Unnecessary Trucks

In a commercial shift attributed to rising gas prices, the Ford F-series of trucks (symbolically say F-you with your American car?) is no longer the top selling automobile. For the last two months some moderate and sensible foreign car is leading the way. So does this mean we're finally moving past 1997 buying habits?

Sales numbers for June are rolling in, and the list of the top 10 sellers in the country has once again shifted. Last month the Honda Civic took the top spot away from the Ford F-150, and now the Toyota Corolla has taken the No. 1 mantle. Before Toyota can claim the spot, though, we must tell readers that Toyota includes Matrix sales along with that Corolla number because they’re built on the same platform.


1. Toyota Corolla: 42,180 (includes Matrix)
2. Toyota Camry: 41,572
3. Honda Civic: 39,967
4. Honda Accord: 39,704
5. Ford F-Series: 38,789
6. Chevrolet Silverado: 34,290
7. Nissan Altima:
8. Chevrolet Cobalt: 20,888
9. Ford Focus: 17,950
10. Hyundai Sonata: 16,875
