America is an attractive market for companies when it comes to the automobile industry. The market size itself is an attraction for many companies to venture into the US market. But the US is known for protectionism and they are often seen promoting their brands. To the surprise of many Americans, many foreign car brands are more popular than Americans. The following are the car brands that are popular in America.
1. Toyota Camry
Camry is an iconic vehicle, and it has been loved by generations in the US. With a rating of 8.4 out of 10, Toyota Camry is considered to be one of the top-selling vehicles in America. It is reliable, comfortable, and is expected to run long miles before it breaks down. The brand has captured the buyers’ attention because of its reliability. It is a common phrase about the brand that ‘It is impossible to kill a Toyota.’
2. Ford F-Series
When it comes to trucks, consumers prefer their car manufacturers. For a long time, GMC trucks have ruled in the US. But in the past decade, Ford F-series caught the eye of the consumers. They are attractive yet practical which makes it a consumer’s first choice. The Ford F-150 is the most common and most selling Truck of the series. It has an overall rating of 9.1 out of 10. This means that people are safe in this vehicle.
3. Honda Civic
Civic is not a direct competitor of Camry in the segment, but as the new look of the Honda Civic was introduced in 2016, many consumers flooded the Honda Dealerships for pre-bookings. Hondas are sold in America as hotcakes. Like Toyota, Honda has a reputation for safety and reliability because it is a Japanese Brand. Honda Accord is another vehicle in the Honda’s Line-up which is popular in the US, but the likes of New Honda Civic cannibalizes its own brand. It is rated at 8.2 out of 10 which shows the trust people put in Honda.
4. Mercedes E-Class
This is a German brand that has been in the US market for quite a long period now. The luxury car segment is ruled by the Mercedes as they are known for their over-engineered cars and this is attractive for many consumers in the US. Mercedes E-Class was rated by critics at 9.0 out of 10. It is an excellent score for a car in this segment.
5. Chevrolet Silverado
The discussion of popular car brands in the US is incomplete without a car model from the GMC Line-up. In the Truck segment, the other ruling name after Ford is Chevrolet. The Silverado is rated at 8.4 which is a significant score for this segment. The truck segment is dominated by American Brands and there is a little contribution of foreign brands in this category.
