American automakers have every reason to rejoice as consumers are now more oriented in buying American-made cars for the whole of 2011.
The trend is expected to continue until 2012. Chevrolet, Ford, and General Motors are now finally enjoying one of their best sales years since 2008.
Leading the pack is the Ford F-150. With a revised architecture, redesigned interior, the use of better quality materials, and new engines, the new Ford F-150 reigned supreme during 2011. Credit should be given to the new Ford EcoBoost engine. Utilizing twin turbochargers (that have oil-fed and water cooled turbo bearings), twin variable cam timing, and direct injection, the Ford F-150 with the EcoBoost engine produces a stout 420 lb.ft of torque. This will allow the EcoBoost F-150 to tow a maximum weight of 11,300 lbs. while still returning 18mpg in combined city/highway driving.
The 2012 Ford F-150 XLT Super Cab and Super Crew is now offered with a $4,500 cash back offer, and up to $1,500 bonus customer cash and retail cash. See the latest offers and the true dealer cost for the new Ford F-150 in your zip code with a free online price quote.
The number 2 spot belongs to another pick up truck, the Chevrolet Silverado. The good thing about the Silverado is that consumers can configure the right trim level and equipment according to your needs, along with a host of body styles that includes a crew cab version.
The Chevrolet Silverado 1500 and 2500 HD now comes with $2,000 consumer cash and with a low APR rate available for well-qualified buyers.
Here is the list of the 10 bestselling cars in America for 2011.
1. Ford F-150
2. Chevrolet Silverado
3. Toyota Camry
4. Nissan Altima
5. Ford Escape
6. Ford Fusion
7. Honda Accord
8. Toyota Corolla
9. Chevrolet Cruze
10. Dodge Ram
The Honda CR-V and the Honda Civic, despite being perennial favorites, failed to make the list as the Accord was the only Honda to be included in the top 10 list. This is due to Honda's failure to cope up with demand due to the earthquake in Japan and catastrophic flooding in Thailand.
The list is further proof that American car makers are back in the selling game. They did this by producing cars that are not only powerful and well-designed, but by increasing the reliability factor while making them more affordable as well.
