Most Popular New Cars Right Now

June 7, 2018

New car sales have come back strong last month compared to a year ago, mainly due to higher incentives and higher consumer confidence.

GM has stopped reporting monthly sales figures, so Chevrolet, Cadillac, Buick, and GMC are not included in this list. Pickup trucks took the top 2 spots, with the Nissan Rogue taking #3. The Toyota RAV4 and Honda CR-V round out the top 5. The Ford F-Series was #1 as usual, selling a whopping 84,639 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.
