Here Are The Best (And Worst) Selling Vehicles In The US For 2017

Sales

Trucks still dominated, but crossovers are here to stay.

Thanks to some statistics that have been published by GoodCarBadCar, we can now look at the sales figures for every vehicle that was sold in the US in 2017. As always, the top of the list was dominated by pickup trucks. The Ford F-Series, Chevy Silverado and Ram trucks sold 896,764, 585,864, and 489,418 units respectively. Full-size pickups have always been the best selling vehicles in the US and the next best selling model has almost always been the Camry, until now that is.

The Camry came in sixth place, with the Toyota RAV4 and Nissan Rogue both outselling it this year. The top ten was rounded out by the Honda CR-V, Honda Civic, Toyota Corolla and Honda Accord. Some other popular vehicles that just missed out on the top 10 included the Ford Escape, Chevy Equinox, Ford Explorer, Nissan Altima, Jeep Grand Cherokee, Nissan Sentra, GMC Sierra, Toyota Highlander, Ford Fusion and Hyundai Elantra. Out of the top 20 best selling models, four were trucks, eight were sedans and eight were crossovers. Clearly crossovers are becoming an integral part of the automotive market whether we like it or not.

On the other end of the spectrum, it was interesting to see what the slowest selling cars of 2017 were. Oddly, there were some outliers that are hard to explain because the list includes cars that have been out of production for several years now. We aren't sure how, but apparently three new LFA supercars were sold in 2017. After ruling out some other outliers such as the Toyota FJ Cruiser, Mazda 5 and Volkswagen Eos, the list of the slowest selling cars wasn't too much of a shock. For example, Ford only sold 89 examples of the GT, which is completely unsurprising considering the car costs $500,000 and was built in a limited production run.

Some other extremely low sellers included the Bentley Mulsanne (98 units), Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV (99 units), Bentley Flying Spur (253 units), Alfa Romeo 4C (407 units), Kia K900 (455 units), BMW i8 (488 units), Nissan GT-R (578 units) and Acura NSX (581 units). We were amazed that the Dodge Viper, which was discontinued earlier this year, actually outsold all of these cars with 585 units. As did the Kia Stinger with 843 units, even though it only became available very late in the year.
