The Top Ten Car and Truck Searches for August of 2013 Infographic

Wouldn’t it be nice to know what the most popular cars and trucks are among online shoppers for the month of August?  We thought so!  We had our team put together an infographic that displays the top ten cars and trucks searched for on Carsforsale.com.

It will not surprise anyone that Honda, Ford, and Chevy rank as the top three most commonly searched for brands.  However, one of the biggest surprises discovered is that the 2006 Dodge Charger was the car searched for the most during August!  Despite the Dodge Charger not making the list of top ten searches by make and model, the 2006 Dodge Charger model reigns supreme when a year is specified.

 

Top Ten Vehicle Searches of August

Top Ten Vehicle Searches of August

We had expected the Honda Accord (#3 and #9) or the Toyota Camry (#7) to claim the top spot as the car most searched for by year, make, and model, as the Honda Accord is ranked as the Best Mid-sized Sedan of 2013 according to ConsumerReports.org.  Due to the fact the Toyota Camry was the third-highest selling vehicle of 2013 according to MSN Autos, we were surprised that the Toyota Camry did not rank higher in our list of top searched cars by year, make, and model in August.  The Toyota Camry, which has dominated the market as the best-selling sedan for most of the past decade, trails only the Chevy Silverado and Ford F-150 in terms of sales so far in 2013.  It is interesting that no specific year of the Chevy Silverado makes our list of top ten vehicles when a year is specified!

When we take a look at the most popular vehicles searched for by make and model, there is another interesting revelation.  The Ford Mustang ranks at the top of our list, even though it is absent from our top ten rankings when a year is applied!  With hunting season approaching, it is no surprise that two pickup trucks make our list in the Ford F-150 (#4) and the Chevy Silverado (#10).  Assisting Honda in earning the title of most popular brand searched for, the Honda Civic and Honda Accord place in the second and third place spots, respectively.
