Automakers have just released their April 2007 U.S. sales figures. Here is the list of the top 10 best selling vehicles last month (in order by number of sales). The bottom of the list may surprise you.
There are a few surprises on the list for last month. The CR-V made it to the top 10? I wonder if this is the first generation to ever perform this well. I guess the public has spoken and they do not require a V6 engine. A lot of people complained about the fact that Honda only offers a 4-cylinder, while its competition offers V6 engines.
The Chevy Impala is almost selling as well as the Accord? Who would have thought the day would happen that a Chevy sedan would almost beat out a Honda. Luckily for Honda the Accord will be redesigned this fall. It is also surprising to see that the Civic is outselling the Accord as well.
The Ford F-Series and Chevrolet Silverado have consistently been the top selling vehicles in the U.S. The fact that they are at the top of the list for last month is not a surprise. Although sales of the big trucks have been declining due to high gas prices and the housing market decline.
Toyota’s Camry and Corolla top the passenger car sales. It is interesting that the Corolla is selling so well considering how old the current design is. The Corolla is out selling the newer Civic.
The one vehicle missing from this month’s list is the Nissan Altima, which was in the number nine spot last month.
