Culture Shock: these have been the 10 best vehicles sold in the united States in 2015

a long time Ago you were talking about the sales ranking in Spain in 2015. A top 10 dominated by suvs, compact crossovers, which are cars like the SEAT Ibiza, the Nissan Qashqai or Opel Astra. In Spain have been sold 1.034.232 passenger cars in 2015, while in the united States, the figure is a dizzying 17.470.659 vehicles. Despite the fact that its population is about seven times higher, they sell about 17 times more vehicles. Be that as it may, we come to speak of their Top Ten, and their cultural differences.

2015 has been a year of record in the U.S., The economic boom has beaten the historical record of sales of new vehicles.

The king of the united States is without a doubt and any surprise the Ford F-Series. Includes not only the F-150, but larger models and capable as the Ford F-350 Super Duty. In 2015 they have beaten its historical record of sales, with nothing less than 780.354 units. Do you had mentioned that has been the vehicle most sold in the U.S. during 34 consecutive years? This type of vehicles are used as passenger cars as commercial vehicles, and are the living symbol of the american way of life, to the level of apple pie or baseball.

2015 Ram 1500 Rebelthis should not be surprising that the second place is for the family of the Chevrolet Silverado, with 600.544 units. Like the Ford F-150 have been recently renovated and its appeal is obvious to many customers, both individuals and corporate. Just adding up these two families, have been sold in one year more vehicles than in the best year of economic boom in Spain. The RAM – formerly known as Dodge – occupy the third place of the podium, with total sales of 451.116 units. Almost nothing.

If you consider that the GMC Sierra are nearly identical to the Chevrolet Silverado, General Motors would overtake the F-Series of Ford.

Your sales have not grown as much as they are reaching the end of its life cycle, and are not as popular in fleets such as Ford or Chevrolet. The podium of sales of pick-ups in the united States now exceeds two million units. The fourth vehicle in the ranking, it is the non-combustible Toyota Camry. Yes, it is a mere appliance transport, a regular fleet of rental and parking garages to corporate. But it is affordable, spacious, practical and very reliable. Even sells a version 3.5 V6 268 HP.

Thanks to generational change, have been sold 429.355 Toyota Camry – only available in one body style – in the united States. The fifth place is for another Toyota, the Corolla in this case. It is the model of car most sold in history on a global level, and only in the united States have been sold a whopping 363.332 units. Nothing to highlight about this car, a boring but practical and affordable Toyota Camry in miniature, all the effects.

The Top 10 vehicles sold in the U.S. is still full of sedans and traditional japanese products.

Honda Accord is the sixth best selling car in the country. Honda has been renovated to the full recently and it is one of the offers most dynamic in the segment.

It has been renovated by the end of 2015, after a ninth-generation disappointing. With turbo engines and a body much more appealing, 2016 will be a much better year for one of the institutions of the american market of cars. A very short distance, in ninth position, the Nissan Altima offers the same as the Toyota Camry or the Honda Accord.

Only two SUV (Honda CR-V and Toyota RAV4) occupy positions of honor in this Top 10.

Is a product that is more simple and lower quality, but with a very competitive price and a great interior spaciousness. It is the favorite of many rental fleets, and 333.398 units sold demonstrate your success.
