Top Selling Vehicles
According to Business Insider, three American-made vehicles took the top three spots in the first half of 2019. Two Japanese makes and models rounded out the top five.

Now, this isn’t to say that a car didn’t make the list; the ever-popular Toyota Camry ranked sixth in overall sales during the first two quarters of the year last year. Still, People are buying crossover SUVs and trucks by the millions in the States, which likely helped Ford, Dodge, and Chevrolet take the top three spots over Japanese and European competitors.
