The 10 Hottest Selling Cars In America

ram

July was a great month for pickups and mid-size sedans, according to Cars.com.

Ford F-Series and Chevy Silverado took the first and second spot respectively, and Ram pickups took eighth place. All the other top sellers were mid-size sedans.

However, the tsunami in Japan was still a major setback for Japanese makers. Honda sales were down almost 26% compared to July 2010, Toyota was down 19.7%, and Subaru was down almost 10%. Nissan saw improvements, but only a 2.7% jump.

This is the third month in a row a Honda has not made the top sellers list.
