Top Five Selling Cars in Colorado in 2012

Colorado offers a varied climate depending on where drivers are located. Those in lower elevations see plenty of sunshine all year, while those in the mountain areas can see as much as 300 inches of snow. Due to this, the top selling vehicles in the past have varied, ranging from Kia to Chrysler to Jeep.

For 2012, the top selling vehicles include:

  • Nissan Altima – The Altima, which is one of the best-selling cars in America, period, had a good showing in Colorado as well – especially for those in lower elevations. With acceptable gas mileage and the redesign for this model year that included firmer suspension and a V6 engine, the Altima is a solid performer.

  • GMC Sierra – The Sierra offers a towing capacity of 10,700 pounds, making it a great option for pulling all those toys through the snow. However, it also has heated and cooled seats available, StabiliTrak and an upgrade package for improved handling.

  • Jeep Grand Cherokee – The Grand Cherokee is a full-size SUV that offers four-wheel drive, making it a great option for those snow-filled days in higher elevations.

  • Toyota Camry – The 2012 Camry is another major contender in Colorado as it offers a luxury sedan with front-wheel drive. This ensures it can handle all that sunny weather, yet still provide the traction needed if heading into a bit of snow.

  • Ford F-Series – The popularity of the F-Series didn’t skip Colorado either, as its fuel economy is great for a truck, and it offers towing capacity and handling with the locking electronic rear axle that can easily handle inclement weather.

The top selling cars in Colorado in 2012 range from sedans to trucks and SUVs, ensuring the right option to fit the needs of most families, regardless of whether they’re closer to the Rockies or not.
