Most Popular New Cars Right Now

August 10, 2017

New car sales were down last month for the seventh month in a row, which is worrying for car makers and dealers (but good news for car shoppers who want the best deal).

Usually pickup trucks take the top 3 spots for most popular vehicles, but the Toyota RAV4 actually ended up beating the Ram 1500 to make it into third place with 41,804 units sold. The Ford F-Series was #1 as usual, selling 69,467 units (which is down from nearly 78K the month prior).

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 No-Haggle, Edmunds Price Promise, 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.
