Most Popular New Cars Right Now

February 11, 2016

As we begin 2016, the Ford F-Series continues its reign as the best-selling vehicle in the United States. The Chevrolet Silverado continued its hold on the #2 spot in January, and the Ram Pickup continued to claim #3. The Toyota Camry and Honda Civic round out the top five.

Although sales were mainly flat in January, car shoppers had renewed interest in smaller SUVs thanks to lower gas prices. Additionally large snow storms on the East Coast in January also impacted sales, keeping potential shoppers at home.

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.
