The most popular cars, trucks and SUVs are usually popular for a reason. They're generally the vehicles that provide the greatest value and meet the needs of those who choose them. Because popularity can vary regionally, if you're in the market for a new car, truck or SUV it's a great idea to know which vehicles are the most popular in your area so you can narrow your focus.
Based on the latest info from USA Today, here are the five most popular cars for sale in Tennessee.
Ford's F-150 is the No. 1-selling pickup in Tennessee, according to Car and Driver. With its high-strength, military-grade aluminum alloy body, the F-150 offers solid performance despite being up to 700 pounds lighter that its competitors. Add Ford's 3.5-liter Ecoboost engine and you'll enjoy 26 miles per gallon on the highway.
The only passenger car to appear on the top five list, the Nissan Altima earned its spot thanks to the great value, style and performance it offers. This IIHS Top Safety Pick Plus award winner features plenty of active safety features like blind spot warning and predictive forward collision warning.
Car and Driver gives the Chevy Colorado 4.5 out of 5 stars and it's well deserved. The Colorado fills the gap between full-size pickup and crossover almost perfectly. With the optional diesel engine the Colorado can tow up to 7,700 pounds, tops in its class.
With 11 different models there's a RAM truck out there for every need. The optional diesel engine offers best-in-class fuel economy, and the air suspension system gives it car-like cruising and handling. In fact, Car and Driver says the ride is “faultless.” Features include Uconnect infotainment system, backup camera, rear-park assist, remote start and dual-zone climate control.
The GMC Sierra 1500 offers rear- and all-wheel drive models, three different body styles, three bed lengths and three different engine choices so you can design the perfect vehicle to meet your needs. With the 6.2-liter V-8 engine, rear wheel drive and trailering package it has a class-leading 12,500 pounds of towing capability.
