The 30 Best-Selling Vehicles of Last Year. Overall vehicle sales for 2018 were up slightly, but they didn't reach record-breaking levels. Having said that, there were a few surprises for automakers. While it has been a trend for a couple of years now, automakers were still taken aback by just how many crossovers and SUVs consumers gobbled up.
So many vehicles have been sold in this segment, in fact, that marques are forgoing sedans altogether and ending production on those types of cars. Ford, for example, will only be selling the Mustang as its single car offering by 2020. Even more surprising, at least to us, is that a minivan is still ranked in the top 30 best-selling vehicles! The lowly Dodge Grand Caravan came in at an impressive #29.
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 32nd 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. (Surprise, surprise. They are Honda and Toyota). Furthermore, the top 3 best-selling vehicles are all trucks, with Ford leading the way followed by Chevrolet and FCA US's Ram Truck Division.
