Ranked: 10 best-selling new trucks in the U.S. in 2021
Dealerships are welcoming 2021 and 2022 models to their lots while some 2020 versions still remain. Before the pandemic, truck sales were rebounding nicely as fleet orders and personal vehicle investments continued.
Below is a list of the best-selling SUVs through March 3, 2021. Many automakers report their sales results quarterly. These rankings have been determined using sales numbers provided by the individual automobile manufacturers.
The vehicles on this list are bound to change order as new information becomes available. Stay tuned!
