That’s right, Chevy is back on top. King of the hill, Leader of the pack, Top of the food chain. Well, at least in two states they are. According to Business Insider the Chevy Silverado was the best selling vehicle in Indiana and Maine from January till August 2013. The GMC Sierra was able to win over only a single state,Vermont.
Unfortunately for us Chevy people, the Ford F-Series smoked everybody, winning over 30 states. The Ford Fusion also snatched up Ford’s home state of Michigan to add insult to injury. Perhaps the higher sticker priced Chevy hurt sales or people really wanted to try out an Eco-Boost F-Series. Whatever the case may be, Chevy got spanked this time. From the list, Nissan is the only company that had less states than General Motors.
What’s interesting to note is the diversity of auto manufactures across the United States. Seems like people closer to the ocean prefer a compact sedan instead of a big burley truck. This might say that these are more rural areas, but that can’t be said either since Nissan won the state of Oklahoma. Something else noteworthy is that the majority here is domestic vehicles and not import companies. While the import companies have definitely made a stake in the American consumers car buying decision, domestic vehicles still ruled out the imports.
