Depending on where you live in Arizona, the weather is either arid or there may be periods of heavy snow – such as in the mountain areas. The vehicles that have been popular in previous years for the area, such as the Toyota Camry and the Chevy Silverado, still have a strong showing for 2012.
The following are the top five selling cars in Arizona in 2012:
Dodge Ram 1500 – The Ram makes the list thanks to its optional four-wheel drive and the more than 10,000-pound tow rating. It also has a luxurious interior, making it great for both work and play all over Arizona.
Honda Civic – The Civic offers decent fuel economy, which is always important for those with long commutes in the flatter areas of the state. However, it also provides a more comfortable ride and handling due to its shorter wheelbase.
Honda CR-V – Honda made the list twice thanks to the CR-V, which combines comfort and the ability to handle a wide range of terrain with no issues. That makes this a good option for those in the higher elevations to make sure they’re prepared when the weather changes.
Toyota Camry – The Camry is a midsize, front-wheel drive sedan that delivers excellent handling and body control. Throw in great gas mileage and a wealth of standard features and it works well for the lower areas of Arizona.
Ford F-Series – The F-Series is a popular option both in and outside of Arizona thanks to its fuel economy and overall design as a workhorse. Add on the fact that Ford included an electronic locking rear axle, and this truck handles both work and play like a champ – no matter where you’re headed in the state.
These five top selling vehicles for 2012 offer a variety of options that are perfect for many areas of Arizona. From the workhorse to the family car, these top picks will get you where you need to go.
