Did You Know?

In spite of a struggling economy and an attitudinal shift toward living a more environmentally friendly lifestyle, the top-selling vehicle of 2009 was the Ford F-Series pickup truck. According to Cars.com, a leading online resource catering to online car shoppers, Ford sold more than 413,000 F-series trucks, easily distancing itself from the runner-up. That distinction belonged to the Toyota Camry, as Toyota sold more than 356,000 Camrys in 2009. Often considered to be in competition with the Honda Accord, the Camry outsold its supposed counterpart by nearly 70,000 units, as Honda sold a little more than 290,000 Accords in 2009. That was good for fifth place on the best seller list, trailing the Chevrolet Silverado and Toyota Corolla, which were third and fourth, respectively. The rest of the top largely reflects a consumer mindset that sought fuel-efficient vehicles, as only one of the remaining 10 best-sellers was a larger vehicle:

6. Honda Civic: 259,722

7. Nissan Altima: 203,568

8. Honda CR-V: 191, 214

9. Ford Fusion: 180,671

10. Dodge Ram: 177,268
