The Ford F-150 and its predecessors have been the best-selling vehicles in the U.S. for 26 years in a row, while holding on to the best-selling truck title for 31 years in a row. However, has consumers shift away from pickups and to something more fuel-efficient, analysts are saying that the Toyota Camry could soon take the top spot from the F-150.
According to BusinessWeek, the Toyota Camry has been the number 1 selling car in the U.S. market for 10 to 11 years, besides 2001 when the Accord took the number one spot.
In April, Camry outsold the number 2 Chevrolet Silverado. It has also been outselling the Dodge Ram pickup since 2006, however, this year it outsold the Ram by more than 50,000 units in the first fourth months.
Ford is still outselling the Camry in 2008, but only by about 30 percent. While there is still a lot of time left in 2008, gas-prices don’t seem to be helping out the F-150 retain its number one spot.
