Trucks are Still King

Though gas prices have come down somewhat from their high this year, I think I speak for everyone when I say the dinosaur juice doesn’t come cheap these days. In spite of that, the two best selling vehicles year to date in the United States are, by far, pickup trucks. Full size pickup trucks, at that.

TTAC has a nifty chart with all the details, if you’re into that sort of thing. The short version has the Silverado in second place, outselling #3 (Toyota Camry) by a healthy 35,000 units. The Silverado is being crushed by the Ford F-150 though, which is in first place by over 80,000 units. Ford has managed to find homes for over 264,000 F-150’s so far this year. I guess $4 per gallon gas really isn’t that big of a deal, after all.
