The Top-Selling Vehicles in the U.S Automotive Market for 2014
In 2014, the U.S. auto industry continued its growth trajectory post-recession, with SUVs and trucks seeing increased sales due to improved economic conditions and relatively lower fuel prices. Total sales hit 16.5 million vehicles, the highest sales volume since 2000.
Pickup trucks continued to be the most popular vehicle segment in the U.S. in 2014, with the Ford F-Series and Chevrolet Silverado leading the way. The Toyota Camry was the best-selling passenger car, followed by the Honda Accord and Toyota Corolla. Midsize sedans were popular because they offer a good balance of fuel efficiency, performance, and interior space. They are also relatively affordable. Crossover SUVs picked up steam in terms of popularity because they offer the best of both worlds: the versatility of an SUV and the fuel efficiency of a car. They are also popular with families because they offer more space and seating than traditional sedans.
