The Top 5 Selling Cars in Alabama in 2012

Top five Alabama

2012 was a great year in Alabama for auto manufacturing, but that wasn’t the only bright spot. Vehicle sales in Alabama were also robust in 2012. Nothing much changed in terms of the vehicle types that were most popular – people wanted, generally speaking, either work trucks or reliable family vehicles. And to no one’s surprise, the Toyota Camry continued to be the most popular car, not just in Alabama, but across the country. So, which cars did best in Alabama in 2012?

Here are the top five best selling cars in Alabama:

  • Honda Accord: This popular family-size sedan garnered 3.02% of sales in the new vehicle market in Alabama for 2012. With its sleek lines, low price point and good fuel economy, the Accord was a favorite with Alabama drivers, and is now a favorite on the used car market.

  • Chevrolet Silverado: This workhorse of a full-size pickup hasn’t changed all that much over the years, and 2012 was no exception. Still, buyers looking for a good, reliable work truck apparently believed there was still much to appreciate in the always-popular Silverado. It captured 3.17% of new vehicle sales in the Alabama market.

  • Nissan Altima: Obviously Alabama buyers wanted affordable family sedans. The Altima was an attractive offering, with a low price point, good fuel economy and plenty of trunk space. The Altima accounted for 3.51% of new car purchases in Alabama in 2012.

  • Ford F-150: The F-150 almost always tops full-size pickup sales, and it was no different in 2012. There has always been a great deal to appreciate in the F-150 – great handling, plenty of towing capacity, and an interior that you might expect to see in a luxury sedan. In Alabama, the Ford F-150 accounted for 3.59% of new vehicle sales in 2012.

  • Toyota Camry: It is doubtful that we will see a vehicle that can knock the Toyota Camry off the top-seller lists any time soon. With elegant looks, great fuel economy and loads of features, the Camry dominated in a huge way in 2012, capturing an incredible 5.78% of new vehicle sales in Alabama.

These are the vehicles you’ll want to look for when it comes time to shop for a great used car. With sales figures like these, you can anticipate that you’ll have a lot to choose from as new vehicle buyers look to trade up with the arrival of the new model year.
