2012 Ford Escape Red Silver

One month ago GoodCarBadCar.net published a list of the 100 best-selling vehicles in America for the first half of 2011. It was interesting. This month The Good Car Guy compiled year-to-date best-selling vehicle information again but split it under vehicle segment headings: cars, SUVs/crossovers, and pickup trucks. 

To start, check out America’s 25 best-selling cars in 2011 from January through July. You’ll find much of this information elsewhere in the July 2011 rundown of U.S. auto sales, but here the 25 most popular passenger cars in America are gathered together and ranked by year-to-date volume, not on July’s sales figures alone.

Once you’ve studied the intricacies of the first table, check out the 20 best-selling sport-utility vehicles in the United States. The Ford Escape is ranked first, as faithful readers would expect. But which vehicle slots into 20th spot? It’s relative popularity will disappoint you.

Finally, check out America’s 16 best-selling trucks. Incidentally, America’s 16 favourite trucks happen to be the only 16 trucks on sale in America, which is convenient for list assembly. Why 25, 20, and 16? Each list in this post simply stretches GoodCarBadCar.net’s normal Best Seller length to include the vast majority of products which have been included in the monthly 20/10/10 lists.
