After a one-month stand as the most commonly researched vehicle on GoodCarBadCar, the BMW 3-Series finished May 2016 as the eighth-most-popular vehicle on the site. The Honda Civic, America’s best-selling car in April 2016, led all vehicle sales tracking pages in traffic.
Our review of the 2015 GMC Sierra’s 6.2L V8 engine continues to be more frequently read than any other review on the site, including newer additions such as the Volvo XC90 and the Ford F-150 2.7L.
The U.S. brand-by-brand auto sales recap posted at the beginning of May was the most popular April 2016-related sales article on the site over the course of May. During a month in which the traditionally best-selling Toyota Camry was knocked off its perch, our list of America’s 20 best-selling cars was the second-most-popular article on GCBC.
