Ford F-Series Dominates Sales Charts, Silverado in Tight Race with Camry

The Ford F-Series is getting comfortable at the top of the U.S. sales charts — in October, it finished way ahead of the crowd with 56,497 units sold (including F-150 and Super Duty). Although the Toyota Camry outsold the Chevy Silverado in year-to-date sales, the bow-tie branded truck was more popular in October, selling 38,739 units compared to the 29,926 Camrys sold. The Honda Accord, on the other hand, couldn’t beat it with 28,349 units.

The Ram truck again was the fifth-most-popular vehicle with 25,222 sales in October, while the Chevrolet Cruze slipped from sixth to just below tenth place. Despite ending on a low note due to Hurricane Sandy the Nissan Altima managed to fill the sixth spot with 24,623 units sold, just 599 units behind the Ram. The shuffling doesn’t end there: The Toyota Corolla jumped from ninth to seventh, with 20,949 copies sold, while the Civic landed in eighth with 20,687 examples sold. After finishing behind the Ford Escape for a few months now, the Honda CR-V beat it in October by less than 400 units, with 20,205 units sold. As a result, the Escape dropped from ninth to tenth with 19,832 units sold. Although the Chevrolet Cruze didn’t make it into the top 10 this month, the compact was not far behind the Escape with 19,121 copies sold in October.
