We know... the suspense was killing us, too. We'll spare you the sleepless nights and get right to the list of America's best-selling cars and trucks for 2010:

1. Ford F-Series (528,349 +27.7%) 6. Honda Civic (260,218 +0.8%)
2. Chevrolet Silverado (370,135 +16.9%) 7. Nissan Altima (229,263 +12.6%)
3. Toyota Camry (327,804 -7.5%) 8. Ford Fusion (219,219 +21.3%)
4. Honda Accord (311,381 +8.1%) 9. Honda CR-V (203,714 +7.2%)
5. Toyota Corolla (266,082 -9.8%) 10. Dodge Ram (199,652 +13%)

As you can see, the Ford F-Series was the best-selling nameplate in 2010 for the 34th straight year, followed by the Chevrolet Silverado. The Toyota Camry, which managed to edge out the Silverado for second place in 2009, came in as the third-best-seller in 2010, its numbers down by about 7.5 percent from 2009. Also down were sales of the fifth-place Corolla (by nearly 10 percent).

We're just speculating here, but we'd guess there's one rather obvious reason Team Toyota's sales figures have fallen, and it's spelled R-E-C-A-L-L. Even so, those are still mighty impressive numbers, particularly in light of the amount of bad ink the Japanese automaker has endured this year. Every other vehicle in the top ten was up in sales, with the two Ford models earning gains of over 20 percent each. For reference, click here to see last year's list of best-sellers.

      No Chevy or Chrysler sedan made the list. Ford made it with the Fusion. Americans continue to build the best pick up trucks in the universe. Market share for the Big 3 and the biggest sellers in the U.S. looked liked this for year ending 2010: Chevy DOWN .7%; Ford UP 1.2%; Chrysler UP .5%' Toyota DOWN 1.8%; Honda DOWN .4%; Nissan and Hyundai UP .4%.

      Go figure. We stimulate other economies, but ours with crap foreign cars!
        • 4 Years Ago
        Do you mean Foreign cars like the new Fiesta? Engineered, designed, tested in Europe, then built in Mexico and imported to the USA?

      Geographical stratification would be an interesting supplement to sales charts.

      More importantly. It's Japanese manufacturers that dominate the car sales. The only US entry is Fusion (and that's a close relative of Mazda 6, using Mazda's 2.5 liter MZR engine). Other US entries are trucks.

      GM closed their Canadian, Oshawa truck plant in 2009. So now most of the Silverados/Sierras are sourced from Fort Wayne, MI and Flint, Michigan. I believe the Silao, Mexico plant makes a few trucks as well. Just a fact check.

      I purchased a 2010 Toyota Corolla S model on November26, 2010 and I'm extremely satisfied with my purchase.

      Goes to show how lame American car buyers are.
        • 4 Years Ago
        No one suggested vettes and stangs.

        Lame is lame. Let's be honest here.

        It just goes to show that most of the cars on the list are basically appliance-type cars, which are going to sell better than niche products.

        Do you expect the list to be all Corvettes and Mustangs?

      But what about the Toyota Tundra and Nissan Titan pick up trucks lol? Nice to see the Fusion is moving on up. Maybe one day it will live up to the Taurus sales of yesteryear.

      wouldn't GM trucks blow ford outta the water if they were combined?

      If I recall right, the GM twins have ALWAYS outsold Ford when combined?

      correct me if I am wrong.


      Good to see 2 Domestic automakers in the top 2 spots regardless!
        • 4 Years Ago
        Typically you would be correct, but not this year according to pickuptrucks.com
        • 4 Years Ago
        Not sure historically, but for as long as I've been paying attention, GMC+Silverado < F series.
      • 4 Years Ago
      GO FUSION!

      There really aren't any surprises here, though next year when a similar list comes out I suspect the Hyundai Sonata or KIA Optima (or both) will make it as well. (The reason why they didn't this year is because the new models didn't start selling until around the middle of the year.)
        • 4 Years Ago
        Sorry, but the previous Sonata and Optima sales are also included into those numbers.
