To the surprise of just about no one, Ford’s F-Series full-size trucks sit in a distant first place in the recently-announced annual sales figures. Despite being down 1.4 percent year over year, Ford sold 896,526 F-150s and Super Dutys in 2019. The Ford F-Series has been the best-selling truck line for 43 years now, and this is the 38th year that it’s been the best-selling vehicle of any in the Unites States. Despite the predictability of this result, it’s still an impressive record, and one that’s not likely to break soon.
Ford’s cross-town rivals are putting forward their best efforts to catch up, and for 2019, Ram has done the best work. Coming in at second place in sales, the Ram Pickups sold 633,694 units, surpassing Chevrolet’s Silverado for the first time since Good Car Bad Car’s records start in 2005. The newly redesigned Ram 1500 is a thoroughly impressive rig. While it might not have the same on-paper stats as the Ford or Chevy, it has a more luxurious cabin, higher quality materials, and rides better thanks to its air suspension.
2019 best-selling vehicle that isn’t a truck is the Toyota RAV4. It was a big deal when the RAV4 surpassed Toyota’s previous sales leader, the Camry, a few years ago, but given the market’s unstoppable shift toward SUVs and crossovers, it is also not a big surprise. The Honda CR-V, Nissan Rouge, Chevy Equinox, Toyota Camry, Honda Civic, and Toyota Corolla round out the top ten.
