Cars With Clout
Automakers were forced to adapt and evolve as 2020 kept the unwelcome surprises coming, but all in all, the car industry weathered the storm quite well — and it appears that change is on the horizon.
“Over the past 12 months, we’ve seen a drop in vehicle production with a simultaneous increase in consumer demand for new and used cars,” said Karl Brauer, executive analyst at iSeeCars.com. “This has meant higher transaction prices for car shoppers, particularly in the truck, SUV, and sports car segments. The supply/demand ratio for vehicles will likely mean lower prices over the course of 2021, though it will likely take until the second half of the year to see it.”
Using data from an iSeeCars.com study of 12.9 million vehicle sales, Cheapism created a list of the most popular new and used cars in America for 2020. The list also includes context from the study about regional and nationwide demand for each model. Here’s a look at the cars, trucks, and SUVs that were hot sellers in a strange year when demand soared just as production plummeted.
