Sales Figures & Rankings for Passenger Cars Sold in the United States

2006 Best Selling Passenger Cars In the United States (All Models Ranked)

In 2006, the United States automotive market was dominated by pickup trucks and SUVs. That said, among passenger cars specifically, several sedans were very popular. While these were some of the top-selling passenger cars, remember that the broader vehicle sales charts of 2006 would include trucks like the Ford F-Series and SUVs, which were very popular during that time period.

The Toyota Camry is often among the top-selling cars in the U.S., and 2006 was no exception. The reliability and value proposition of the Camry made it a favorite among American buyers. The Toyota Camry was once again America’s best-selling car in 2006, and its lead over the Honda Accord continued to expand as Camry volume increased and Accord sales decreased. So significant was the Accord’s drop – 14,852 units – and so impressive was the Toyota Corolla/Matrix increase – 46,098 units – that the Accord fell off its usual second-place perch. (The Accord regained second spot in 2007, 2008, 2010, 2012, and 2013.) After climbing from 13th spot in 2004 to the 11th position in 2005, the Ford Mustang was America’s tenth-best-selling car in 2006, fewer than 11,000 sales out of the eighth spot and 2677 sales clear of the 11th-ranked Chevrolet Malibu.
