Automotive research firm iSeeCars.com has compiled a list of the most popular new cars by state.
Pickup trucks dominate the list: the Ford F-150 appears 22 times, while Chevrolet Silverado 1500 appears nine. ISeeCars CEO Phong Ly claims this is because these working trucks are likely bought new for “professional purposes.”
“The Ford F-150 and Chevrolet Silverado 1500 are among the best-rated vehicles in their class for towing capacity and are not as luxurious as their competitors, which makes them popular work vehicles or family vehicles for those who want something more rugged than an SUV or minivan,” Ly continued.
ISeeCars.com analyzed over 10.9 million new car sales in 2019. Heavy-duty vehicles were not included in the study.
