10 Best-Selling Cars of 2017...so Far
In the first half of this year, nearly 8.5 million new cars, trucks, SUVs and vans were sold in the United States. And of the more than 300 models out there, the top 10 bestsellers accounted for one out of every four new vehicles sold. While sedans like Camry and Accord have long held the top slots behind the top-selling pickup trucks, they've been displaced for now (forever?) by a trio of compact SUVs. Here are the top-selling models through the first six months of 2017.
The Honda Accord continues to be a strong seller thanks to its hallmark reliability, refinement and efficiency. This KBB Best Buy Award winner broadens its appeal even further with a choice of two gas engines, a hybrid powertrain, three transmissions, and sedan and coupe layouts. (And there's an all-new Accord on the way for 2018.)
Already a perennial bestseller, the Honda Civic’s recent redesign earned it our Small Car Best Buy and Overall Best Buy awards for 2016. And then it went and won both awards again this year.
Spoiler Alert: Toyota and Honda together account for six of the 10 bestselling cars in the country so far this year. The Corolla offers sharp style, modern tech and an impressive suite of standard safety features in a compact sedan that's surprisingly spacious.
The best-selling sedan for the first half of the year, the Camry continues its long-standing tradition of offering buyers comfort, excellent resale value and reliability.
Buoyed by a recent update and the addition of a hybrid option, the RAV4 appeals to buyers with its mix of reliability, fuel efficiency, comfort and interior space.
Honda’s best-selling model is all-new for 2017. More user-friendly and fuel-efficient than ever, the Honda CR-V continues to offer a winning combination of versatility, comfort and refinement.
Through the first half of 2017, the best-selling non-truck in America was the Nissan Rogue. The recently updated SUV has appealing features like an excellent Around View Monitor which makes parking a snap, an available hybrid powertrain and even the option of a (small) third-row seat.
The Ram 1500 offers the most comfortable highway ride you can find in a full-size pickup, a fantastic infotainment system and myriad special edition models. The mighty Power Wagon and the rest of the Heavy-Duty lineup are also key players in a segment where capability is king.
With the highest towing capacity of any crew-cab half-ton pickup and the best 5-Year Cost to Own data in its class, the Silverado is Chevrolet’s top selling vehicle and the second-best-selling vehicle in America.
Ford continues to update and improve its highly capable, tough-yet-luxurious trucks. Recently redesigned with a switch to aluminum bodies for everything from the F-150 to the F-450, Ford trucks show that new thinking and new technology help get the job done. It’s for these reasons that the F-Series has been the best-selling truck in America for 40 years and the best-selling vehicle for 35 years and counting.
