The Ford F-Series was yet again the best-selling vehicle in the United States by a large margin in November with the Chevrolet Silverado a distant second. Outside of the top two slots, there was a lot of jockeying among the remaining eight, ultimately resulting in the Honda Civic earning third place last month – ahead of midsize entries including the Toyota Camry and Honda Accord.
Ford’s F-Series (including the F-150 and Super Duty models) retained the number one spot with a staggering 56,299 sales in November, bringing its year-to-date total to a commanding 576,529. Second place again went to the Silverado lineup (which includes the Silverado HD), with 30,674 sales, keeping the Chevrolet Silverado the second-best-selling vehicle in the U.S.
Third place saw the Honda Civic leaping up from eighth place to earn the bronze medal with 30,075 sales. The Civic sales jump can likely be explained by incentives, as Honda clears 2012 Civic inventories ahead of the refreshed 2013 Civic’s launch. Fourth place went to last month’s third-place finisher, the Toyota Camry, with 28,765 sedans sold. Through the first 11 months of 2012, the Camry remains the third-best-selling vehicle and the best-selling car in the U.S.
Fifth place went to the Honda Accord, with 26,248 sales. Honda has seen Accord sales soar this year, thanks to the well-received new model. The Ram pickup lineup (including the 1500, 2500, and 3500) earned sixth place with 24,337 vehicles sold. The biggest change among the remaining best-sellers was the Nissan Altima’s fall from sixth to tenth place; Nissan sold just 20,305 Altimas last month, allowing it to remain one of November’s best-sellers.
