Most Popular New Cars Right Now

April 12, 2018

New car sales were still strong last month compared to a year ago, mainly due to higher incentives.

Pickup trucks took the top 2 spots, with considerably more sales than the month prior, with the continued surprise being the Nissan Rogue taking #3 spot once again from the Ram 1500 for the third month in a row. The Toyota RAV4 rounds out the top 5. The Ford F-Series was #1 as usual, selling over 87,000 units.

If you're considering purchasing any of these popular vehicles, I recommend you use TrueCar No Haggle and Edmunds Price Promise to see the best deals being offered in your area.

My Recommendation for Car Shoppers

TrueCar, Edmunds, and 1-800 Car Show are the quickest way to see the lowest car prices in your area. These sites show you no-haggle prices from dealers closest to you - and the deals are usually really good. This should be the first step you take when negotiating your car price. Follow this up with my checklist to make sure you squeeze out every last bit of savings.

California Residents - Important:

There is a new online car buying service called Roadster, available only to California residents, which I highly recommend you try - especially if you hate the stress of haggling with a car salesman. They provide an expert concierge who negotiates the price of the car and delivers it to your home with zero hassle - you never have to interact with a dealership. Here is my in-depth review of Roadster and why I recommend it.
