For the month of November, Nissan checks in at the 10-spot in sales with its Altima midsize sedan. Engine options range from a base 175-horsepower 2.5L four-cylinder engine mated to a high-tech CVT automatic transmission or a standard six-speed manual transmission. An optional 3.5L V6 offers up a stout 270 horsepower, which is enough grunt to embarrass some sports cars. The Altima was last redesigned in 2007 and is available as both a coupe and sedan.

9: Honda CR-V - 12,153 sold
Honda's first vehicle to show up on our top ten best-sellers list isn't a car at all, but it is the best-selling SUV in the U.S. The Honda CR-V boasts plenty of utility in a small package, with seating for five and a large cargo hold out back. All-wheel-drive adds security for those living in snowy climes, and a four-cylinder engine is rather miserly at the pump to boot. Click here for more high-res shots of the Honda CR-V.
8: Chevy Impala - 12,851 sold
The Impala nameplate has been around in various forms since 1958, back when it was the most expensive sedan that Chevy offered. The current front-wheel-drive model doesn't quite live up to the reputation set by its muscular predecessors, but it still sells in relatively high numbers regardless. A large portion of those sales go to fleet customers, so the chances are good that you'll run across an Impala the next time you need to rent a car. It's a decent vehicle that can usually be picked up at cut-rate pricing, and there's definitely something to be said for that these days.

7: Dodge Ram - 15,538 sold
Dodge shocked the pickup truck world way back in 1994 when it introduced the first major redesign of its Ram truck in a few decades. That model popularized the current "big rig" look that has remained popular ever since. The latest Ram for 2009 keeps the aggressive look of its forebears while adding a great deal more comfort, convenience and capability due to its coil-over rear suspension (the first such system in a full-sized truck) and powerful 5.7L HEMI V8 with 380 HP and 404 ft.-lb. of torque.

6: Honda Accord - 17,430 sold
The Honda Accord comes in many shapes and sizes, including a sporty coupe and a practical sedan, each available with your choice of four-cylinder or six-cylinder engines. Offering more room than any of its closest competitors, along with Honda's well-earned reputation for advanced technology and stellar reliability, it's not surprising that the automaker manages to sell as many of its large sedans as it does.

5: Honda Civic - 17,690 sold
The Accord is definitely a huge seller for the Honda, but the Honda Civic manages to sneak past its big brother by just a few hundred units to snag the fifth spot. The Civic offers a sporty alternative to the standard compact car, and its futuristic styling inside and out has plenty of admirers. An attractive starting price of just over $15,000 makes for a compelling case and a fuel-saving hybrid model only serves to sweeten the deal.Click here for a high-res gallery of the 2009 Honda Civic.
4: Toyota Corolla - 21,807 sold
With a bit over 20,000 sales for the month of November, the Toyota Corolla manages to snag fourth place. It's easy to understand why, as the Corolla is perennially one of the most reliable cars on the road. A complete refresh for the 2009 model year keeps Toyota's compact sedan in the running.

3: Toyota Camry - 24,224 sold
Toyota claims the number three spot with its super-popular Camry midsize sedan. This is the best-selling car in America, with a couple of pickup trucks being the only thing standing in its way of total sales domination. We've put the Camry through its paces a few times and can understand why its attractive as a ridiculously reliable way to get from point A to point B. So, what two trucks managed to snag the victory from the Toyota? Click here for more shots of the 2009 Toyota Camry.
2: Chevy Silverado - 29,534 sold
Each year, Chevrolet's fullsize Silverado pickup truck manages to take home the silver trophy in total vehicle sales in the United States. It's an extremely profitable vehicle for the Bowtie division, so Chevrolet is happy to see its truck regain some sales strength after expensive gasoline wreaked havoc on its figures earlier in the year. To help keep up the momentum, GM has added a new XFE (Extra Fuel Economy) model along with an advanced hybrid drivetrain. Click here for more shots of the Chevrolet Silverado.
1: Ford F-Series - 37,911 sold
After a series of down months this summer when gas prices took their meteoric rise over $4 a gallon, the Ford F-150 has marched back up the ladder to continue its run of sales domination. The Blue Oval has no plans to let the title of Best Selling Vehicle in the United States slip away after 23 straight years of holding the crown. To that end, the pickup got a full makeover for 2009 and a new fuel-saving SFE edition. Click here for more high-res shots of the 2009 Ford F-150.
