Compared with October of last year, the Nissan Versa, Kia Optima, and Ford Focus have all been knocked out of the top 30. In their place, you'll instead find the 30th-ranked Chevrolet Tahoe, 29th-ranked Kia Soul, and the 18th-ranked Toyota Highlander.

We've already published October lists for the 20 best-selling cars, 20 best-selling SUVs and crossovers, and complete figures for every pickup truck, links to which you'll find below. Throwing all those vehicles into one group results in this list of the 30 best-selling vehicles overall. We end up with five pickup trucks, 12 cars, and 13 utility vehicles.

Historical monthly and yearly sales figures for any of these top-selling vehicles can always be accessed through the dropdown menu at GCBC's Sales Stats page, and for those not viewing the mobile version of this site, near the top right of this page, as well. Mobile users can now thumb across the table for full-width access.
