It was a big year for car news: new models, new technologies, and new directions for the industry and for the ways we'll move around in the world. Out of the thousands of stories and hundreds of videos we've published this year, there was a lot of great content that got a lot of readership but didn't make this list — reviews, rumors, inside scoops, breaking news, interviews with automotive newsmakers. Think of the stuff that's not here: Nissan Leaf, Chevy Silverado, back-to-back new Volvo crossovers. Greg Migliore drove a Ford GT, for pete's sake, and even that didn't quite hit the top 50. And note the complete and utter absence of Tesla.

So why were these the most-read stories? Sometimes it's obvious: Accord, Bronco, Demon, Stinger, F-150. Sometimes the stuff you liked surprised us. But these are the ones you really latched on to, for whatever reason — stories about cars and trucks, people and pictures, heroes and heels.

In Dick Clark countdown fashion, here are our 50 most-read stories, and a chance to revisit any you might have missed:
