Best-Selling Cars and Trucks in America: June 2015

Each and every month, we see a similar story playing out on dealerships across the United States. People flock to dealerships in near record numbers to buy new vehicles, and more of them are choosing fullsize pickup trucks than anything else.

Generally low fuel prices are a big contributing factor to the popularity of these not-so-eco-friendly choices, to be sure, but we also understand the desire for a modern truck – these do-it-all machines are equally as adept comforting passengers as they are hauling heavy loads.

The list of best-sellers looks mostly as we've come to expect, though the finishing order shuffled a bit in June. Behind the top trucks, Japanese sedans continue to attract buyers in droves, and there's a new Korean sedan on the list.

Without further ado, click through to see the most popular cars in the US, according to Autodata.

2015 Ford F-150 truck at Alamo

1. Ford F-Series

June 2015 Sales: 55,171
Change vs. June 2014: -8.9%

Sticker Price: $25,420 - $54,680
Fuel Economy: 18 mpg city, 25 mpg highway

The all new and redesigned 2015 Ford F-150 is a revolutionary step forward in the full-size pickup truck market. The F-150 has set itself apart from the competition by rethinking the entire segment and offering an all-aluminum body on all of its models to reduce the curb weight while maintaining both the payload and the towing values. The all-aluminum body and pickup box shaves up to 700 lb. from the curb weight and the availability of four efficient gasoline engines paired to a 6-speed automatic transmission provides remarkable fuel economy.

The F-150 is available with three cab styles (regular, super and crew) with either a 4x2 or 4x4 drive train and three pickup box lengths. Five distinct trims are offered depending on the cab style and they include the XL, XLT, Lariat, King Ranch and Platinum, but all of these trims are further enhanced by optional equipment packages. The exterior of the F-150 presents a more aggressive appearance with the arrangement of the bold grille and headlight configuration. The new exterior pays homage to the rugged Atlas concept vehicle. The four engine choices available on the F-150 include a 283-hp 3.5-liter flex-fuel V6, a 325-hp 2.7-liter EcoBoost V6, a 365-hp 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 and a 385-hp 5.0-liter flex-fuel V8. The new 2.7-liter engine includes stop/start technology and active grill shutters are available with all engine choices to further improve fuel economy. New features that are available on the various F-150 models include Active Park Assist, Blind Spot and Cross-Traffic Alert, adaptive cruise control with collision mitigation, inflatable rear safety belts, stowable loading ramps, LED headlights and pickup box lights, a revised tailgate step, a remote tailgate release and a twin panel moonroof on the SuperCrews.

For 2015, the Ford F-150 has introduced a new pickup truck that incorporates the exclusive use of military grade aluminum for the entire cab and pickup box while still utilizing a steel frame for strength and rigidity. This innovation with the introduction of fuel efficient power trains has allowed the new F-150 to improve its fuel economy while retaining its impressive payload and towing values.

      The Tale of an Old Man.  I am now 75 yrs old.  I have had more cars to list.  When boys were my age we had Auto Shop in school and learned the working on a engine and other parts but importantly how to repair them. The Auto Makers took that away.  I have restored many English sports cars and repaired my own cars until about 20 years ago.  Part of owning and enjoying a car was you and friends working on them. People don't even change their own oil today.

        You are right but also wrong in some cases. I am 70 years young and just sold my Chrysler 300 and my new car is a Cadillac CTS-4 (all wheel drive). I can change my oil, still do my own brake jobs, tune uos, belts, hoses, etc. Will even do diagnostics if the check engine light is on. There is tons of information on the Internet for individuals that still want to fix their own cars but lack the up to date knowledge. I will probably die with a wrench in my hand but I still enjoy working on my vehicles even though the technology has changed. It's just like having a land line phone versus a cell phone. The world is changing and I am determined to keep up with it for as long as I can......

          I am 77.5. I own the 2004 Chevy Astro (s) and do ALL my maintenance except tires. That van can carry a 4 X 8 sheet of plywood flat on the floor with the seats removed. I do NOT need all the crappy extras that simply do not work or fail. It also has a full box frame, the last mid size van to have one. I do not desire to drive in a crushable tin can from Toyota or others. I also own a CTS Caddy for fun drives. I note that Lexus and others with the auto on lights are a road hazard. They may have driving front lights BUT have NO rear lights.. You cannot see them in rain. I have my own diagnostic analyzer tools and shop manuals. I do not trust most newby "mechanics".

          I too, use to work on my cars in the 60's,70's and 80s. In some cases, doing your own work on a newer car may "VOID" the warranty. A record at an "authorized" dealership may be required as proof if you have a powertrain (engine/transmission/gear) problem which may run into thousands and thousands of dollars. I'd rather be safe than sorry and I take my car to the dealership for regular maintenance.

          with that 12.99 you get bulk oil and some kid that doesnt care if the drain plug is started strait and runs it on any how so the next person will strip it taking it off. or better yet put the wrong weight oil or amount in. They will never be anybody treat your stuff the way that you will, because they dont make the payments.

        Not only do they not change their own oil, they have no clue as to where the dipstick is or what it is used for. As a 64 year old, I am continuously amazed at the almost total lack automotive knowledge from anyone under the age of 40. We have an entire generation that is clueless as to how to take care of virtually anything mechanical.

        It was good starting and reading so many reply posts.  I joined the Marine Corps when I was 17 years old ( I did give 20+ years) I made less than a $100. dollars a month.  I got married at 19 (pretty dumb).  Our combindeed income was under $200. a month.  I could not afford to pay someone fix my cars.  Later in life I went to Harley Motorcycles.  After riding 40+ years I shatterd my knees (NOT on a Bike).  The VA told me I had to give up Motorcycles.or I was going to kill myself.  2 years ago I had the urge to build a Trike (Motorcycle with training wheels).  I am in the process now of building it but it is taking a lot of time.  I have the knowledge but not the energy.  Most of the work I pay for.  But, SOON I will ride again and the Hell with the VA.

        It wasn't totally the fault of the auto makers.Government safety,fuel mileage,and emissions

        requirements have played a significant part in the complexity of modern automobiles.

        A manufacturer has to take the contemporary consumer's demands into consideration

        too.Give the people what they want or lose their business.

        Well I'm right behind you at 74,  I loved the cars of the '50'-60's but mostly the memories.  Today's cars are so great compared to them in so many ways.  Yep, I still change my own oil but that's about it. Cars today don't need much attention. I still work on my  '81 F250 which I bought new.  I grew up only driving convertibles and coupes.  To this day I've never owned a door model (that means a four door to the younger generations.)  My latest car is a 2010 Nisssan Altima coupe with every extra available except the 3.5L.  The 2.5L is quite enough power for me and the MPG is great. LONG LIVE COUPES.  Hey Chevy, bring out a Cruze Coupe and I'll buy one.

          I've owned 3 Cadillacs, 2 Lincolns, 1 Chrysler New Yorker, and 1 Olds 98. All are classified as "Luxury" cars. After that, I've owned 4 Camrys and 2 Accords! As far as quality goes, there is no comparison. One Camry had 349,000 miles on it and I gave it to a Nephew. I currently have 2 Camry's that have 167,000 miles and the other has 142,000 miles. I believe both of those will last as long as I want to keep them! I have an Accord with 12,000 miles on it. The Japanese autos are far superior to anything I've ever owned in the past. The Accord is O.K., but from here on out, I will buy strictly Toyota Camry!

      One thing is certain. I will never, EVER buy a German car again.  After two failed ownerships, I was done.  By the time my BMW and MB were approaching 100K, the cars were literally falling apart. A thousand for this, fifteen hundred for that.  Something is wrong in the universe when you're on a first name basis with the service manager.  So now, the current rides in my family's fleet are a 1999 Bonneville, 226,000 miles and a 2001 Acura 3.2TL with just over 200,000 miles.

        German cars, mainly MB BMW - are not really "Hold-On" cars!! It's not a smart idea to hold these cars forever, unless you know how to take care of your car and/or have extended warranty/or cash on hand.    The true object of possessing a high-end car, is via a lease!! After lease term, simply hop in another. BMW/MB are simply too costly trying to outright own.

          The older BMWs are "hold on" cars. But, I agree, anything made after, say 2000 - drive it for 100K and DUMP it.
          For what it's worth, we have a 1974 BMW 2002tii. Not one ounce of trouble. The trouble started with sophisticated electronics and computers - and outsourcing parts to Eastern Europe.

      I cry when i see the cars on the road today, its sad that they cant make more FULL size real cars that actually fit people in them, most are so small that if you get hit in the rear, say good buy to your life. Where is the trunk??? The people in the back seat are 2 feet from the rear bumper, its a joke that the cars they build today, they call cars? On TV you can see people crammed next to each other like a lunch box. And the best is the Honda commercial where the guy is pulling out a weed eater from the so called trunk, but all you see is 1/4 of it and its gone as soon as he puts his hands on it, is a joke how they try to fool people. I bought a Toyota 4-Runner limited SUV, not a cross over, and what is that anyway, cross over? Its ok to make smaller car's, but can we have a choice please? Very few cars are called cars today, they all seem to look alike and no eye popping when you look at them. The few that are still being made, are few and not cheep aka, Dodge challenger, the 300 and a few american sport cars, that's about it. Cadi and lincolin is a joke all together, maybe the SUV, but not at 60-80k, years ago when you bought a cadi or lincoln, YOU BOUGHT A REAL CAR! i miss my 1984 Fleeetwood.

        Hay KND. You're not doing your homework, are you? You can buy a FULL SIZE Cadillac, CTS or ATS and save tons of cash. The secret is 'buy a lease back'. I bought a Cadillac that when new listed for 63K and when I purchased it with only 19k miles on it I paid 29k. It was certified so I got an extra 2 years full warranty with the purchase. The years of buying a Chevy Impala sedan for $2,700 is gone (1960's). Yes the auto unions and the rest of the money grabbers has caused the prices of everything to rise to unrealistic levels. But you go with the flow and find ways to slmost get around it. Yes prices go up but like I mentioned, you have to do your homework to stay ahead.....

          the tip over was caused by bad driving.

          I bought a 2004 Chevy Colorado, the first year out.  First new tires at 62,000 miles, brakes on front lasted until 120,000 (twice the miles of inlaws F150).  Had a front brake sensor replaced at 144,000, no other repairs.  Sold it to get a full size with 198,000 miles.  Didn't use a drop of oil, automatic never slipped, never serviced the tranny.

      I own a 1993, Ford F-150 Flareside, needs a tune up, but for most part works very well!  I love my truck!

        My first PU was a 1076 Toyota.

        8 years ago I had the seat rebuilt and had it painted.

        Gave it to my oldest grand son with the understanding he was to save up and get his own car and give the Toyota to his next youngest brother.

        Now it's being driven by my youngest grand son.

        497,000 mile with only normal maintenance other that 3 clutches since the boys have been driving it.

        My youngest gets to sell it when he has enough to buy his next car.

        He has a standing offer of $2500.00.

        Maybe I'll give him the $2500.00 and start driving it again.

          hey john fairy for every 80's early 90's japanese car you see on the road you will see at least 15 G M  cars of the same vintage so don't think your  non-American p.o.s is the only long lasting vehicle

          We've had good luck with Toyotas as well and have kept them in the family.  Back and forth.  The '91 Celica was the "best car ever"!

          would have been a better story if if it didn't start off with the tale of an economic traitor and his japanese built toyota. you should have bought, say, a 1969 yenko camaro--and gave that to your grandson. that car would be worth $150,000 today.

        Half tons aren't really a truck. Trucks start with the 2500.

        And if it has spark plugs, it isn't a real truck either.

          I have often thought about a diesel, but the $10,000.00 jump in price and the cost of diesel doesn't justify the upgrade.  Did I mention that in the northern climes the fuel has to be treated .  My buddies call me all the time  when the temp is below zero to give them a lift because the block heater failed and the fuel gelled.  Deisels pull great but the cost and upkeep, (16 quarts of oil every chage) and that same Buddy blew his inter cooler and turbo on or about 100,000 miles (a ford Super duty).  Nope I will stick with the Silverado 1500 gas powered.  has never failed me.

          there are some good gas  trucks, and guess what you can put two new motors in them for the price to upgrade to diesel

          He's actually partially correct....1/2 tons have the same axle type as a car. 3/4 have a semi floating hypoid axle, and 1 tons have a full floating hypoid axle....as far as the diesel reference.....no, there are compact cars with diesels, and 5 ton trucks with spark plugs

          Don't know about the spark plug bit (although I regret not getting the Cummins Diesel in my Dodge 2500) but yes, a truck doesn't start until it's 3/4 ton.  Best truck ever was a '78 Chevy Crew Cab Dually with a 454 and turbo 400 tranny.

          What did truckers drive before diesels youngun? I say it isn't a truck unless it was chain driven, but that was before your time! Not mine!
