With the 4th of July creeping upon us and the 1st half of the year almost behind us, there is reportedly some wind that has faded from the auto industry sales. Overall car sales are down about 3%, compared to the same time period in 2018. The sale of passenger cars continues to trend downwards, while popular crossovers and SUV sales have seen a rise. Continuing its tradition for another year, the top 3 best-selling vehicles in the USA are all pickups.
Several major brands saw a big sales increase in the 1st quarter of 2019, including Kia, Ram, Subaru, and Volkswagen. But General Motors continued to lead all other manufacturers in the U.S with a 17% market share, followed by Ford Motors, Toyota and Chrysler/FCA group. Have a look at some of the most popular cars in America right now.
Most Popular Cars in America 2019
The Ford F-Series
Owing to its strong sales in 2018, The Ford F-Series continued its streak as the best-selling vehicle in America. Even though sales in 2019 are relatively flat, they certainly were enough to keep F-150 at the top. The vehicle is driving strong sales with updated styling, added convenience and safety features as well as the latest 3.3-liter V6 engine that generates 290 horsepower, adding to the Ford line-up of already powerful, turbocharged EcoBoost power plants.

The Ram’s latest features include chic interiors and updated exterior styling. There are 6 trim levels that are available, as well as a new line-up of powertrains that will eventually include a Hybrid System. Find out best car deals on Ram Truck.
Even though Chevrolet introduced a new model in 2019, it seems like the consumers did not embrace it well, as sales went down in the 1st quarter of 2019.
