The Good Car Guy’s favourites? Well, apart from the obvious first-place and Good 12-winning Ford F-150, members of The Good 12 are also positioned in 96th, 95th, 94th (sort of), 90th, 80th, 77th, 71st, 37th, and 23rd.
Understand two final things before you analyze the findings. Not present on this list is the Hyundai Genesis. If counted as one car – as it always is in America because that’s how Hyundai USA releases data – the Genesis would slot in at 97th. But since we possess separate Canadian sales statistics for the Genesis and the Genesis Coupe, it seems as though it’d be a mistake to combine such different, if related, automotive product lines. Hyundai sold 1394 Genesis Coupes in the first half of 2011 along with 317 Genesis sedans.
Also missing are commercial vans like the Ford E-Series (5126 sales), GMC Savana (2760 sales), Chevrolet Express (2607 sales), and Ford Transit Connect (2163 sales). Sure, they can be acquired as passenger vehicles, and if you want to see it this way, you can imagine the E-Series ahead of the Jeep Grand Cherokee, the Savana and Express alongside the Chevrolet Traverse and GMC Acadia, and the Transit Connect mixing it up with the Dodge Charger.
