Most Popular New Cars Right Now

December 6, 2018

New car sales slowed down slightly last month due to higher interest rates and lower incentives.

The Toyota RAV4 and Honda CR-V were the two non-pickups making the top 5 list again. The Ford F-Series was #1 as usual, selling over 72,000 units.

Please note that I included Chevrolet on this list with an asterik, that's because they only report sales once a quarter. I used their previous sales figures to show where they're likely to fall on the list.

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.
