The Bestselling New and Used Cars in Every State

ford

There are a few regular favorites, but for the most part, America’s best-selling used and new cars vary from state to state. For example, in the Great Plains, trucks dominate because they fit both the lifestyle and job requirements of the area. In other states, trucks are still popular, but they are also giving way to compact and midsize SUVs such as the Honda CR-V and Toyota RAV4.

One car dominates the used car market, and the Ford F-150 is the most popular used car in 38 states. Some trucks are the best sellers in 33 states, but the new car market is even wider.

No matter where you live, the vehicle you buy should be the one that best fits your needs within your budget. To get the best price, buy at the time of the year when you’re most likely to get the best deals.

To find the most popular cars in each state, GOBankingRates consulted iseecars.com data on the most popular used and new cars by state in 2021.
