Overall vehicle sales for 2019 were down slightly (-1.6%), but raw sales numbers surpassed 17 million for the 5th straight year in a row. That's unprecedented. A couple of years ago, automakers were taken aback by just how many crossovers and SUVs consumers gobbled up. That's no longer the case, now, as many carmakers have scrapped passenger cars from their lineups completely. Ford, for example, will only be selling the Mustang as its single car offering in 2020.
On the other hand, there are some resoundingly familiar names that remain unchanged. Ford's F-150 is, yet again, the best-selling vehicle in America for the 33rd year in a row. And yes, you read that right. It's not just the best-selling truck; it's the best-selling overall vehicle of any that are sold in the U.S. Honestly, that should tell you all you need to know about America's driving sensibilities. Only 3 of the top 10 are passenger cars.
