Ford F-Series tops US sales charts for 2012

Beginning with the late 1960s, due to the fact that more people moved into the city, the real need for a pickup truck has been diminished, although pickup trucks still remain very popular in the US. Thus, in 2012, the sales charts were topped by Ford's F-Series trucks with 645,316 units sold, showing that the Americans still love these cars. In terms of sales, since 2007, this has been the best year as the entire number of vehicles sold throughout the territory of the United States rose to 14.5 million units in total, which emphasizes a 13% increase as compared to the 2011 figures. The Chevrolet Silverado represents the second best-selling vehicle in the United States last year as 418,312 units were sold, while the Toyota Camry occupies the third position with a total of 404,886 units sold. The following positions go to two Honda models, the Civic and the Accord with the former selling 317,909 units and the latter topping it with 331,872 units sold. Another key market sector, the compact SUVs/crossover was nabbed by Honda which beated Ford's Escape with its CR-V by 20,000 units, selling in total no more than 281,652 units. The year 2013 is expected to bring considerable developments in the field with the analysts projecting a figure of 15% to 15.5 %.
