In 2015, the Ford F-Series was America’s best-selling vehicle for a 34th consecutive year. In every year since 1982, the F-Series tops the U.S. vehicle sales leaderboard.
2015 was different, relative to recent history. For the first time since 2009, GM’s full-size truck twins – Silverado and Sierra – combined to outsell the Ford F-Series, and by a wide, 44,329-unit margin.
For a second consecutive year, the three top-selling vehicles in America were all pickup trucks. The growth achieved by the top-selling passenger car, Toyota’s Camry – which reigned for a 14th consecutive year – was modest by the standards of the three top players, and the midsize Toyota trailed the third-ranked Ram by nearly 22,000 units.

2015’s list of the 30 best sellers includes five pickup trucks in total, not a single minivan, 14 traditional cars, and 11 utility vehicles. Only one member of the top 30 in 2014, the aging, scandal-afflicted Volkswagen Jetta, failed to crack the top 30 in 2015. The Chrysler 200 took its place.
