The Best-Selling Car of 2008 is…

Although 2008 was an extremely tough year for automakers, people still bought cars. Even with gas prices exceeding $4 a gallon, people still bought cars. Here’s the shocker though. The top two best-selling cars of 2008 are not small, fuel efficient hybrids.

The year’s top seller (so far) is the Ford F-150, with the Chevrolet Silverado taking the number two spot. Both are big, heavy-duty trucks. But despite their lack of fuel savings, they were the favorite among Americans who needed the utility of a big truck.
Ford sold 473,933 F-150’s this year, making it the best-seller for 2008, reports Forbes. The F-150 has been the best-selling vehicle in America for 27 years running. The Silverado, the number two best seller, was bought by 431,725 Americans.
