America, These Are Your 10 Best Selling Models of 2012

|

You've already read that 2012 was the best year for the automotive industry in the United States since the 2007 fallout with close to 14.5 million passenger and light commercial vehicle deliveries, but which ones were the best of the best in terms of sales?

The answer to the question comes from Car's Kicking Tires blog that has compiled a list with the 10 top sellers of the year.

There's no surprise with the overall winner, which for the umpteenth time is the Ford F-Series pickup truck range that easily beat the rest boasting a sales difference in excess of 50% from the runner up, the Chevrolet Silverado truck.

Japanese carmakers occupy six places in the top 10 list with the rest going to American brands.

Cars missing from 2011's top 10 include the Ford Fusion and the Chevrolet Cruze, which were replaced by two Honda models, the Civic compact and the CR-V.

A detailed view of this year's winners follows below.
