Nissan has continually updated the Frontier over the years. For the 2019 model year, the truck now comes with a standard 7-inch infotainment screen. In 2018 it got a standard rearview camera and Bluetooth. The Frontier still has a very low starting price compared to other midsize trucks.

No. 8 - Ford Ranger (89,571 sold)

The Ford Ranger made a big splash when it was introduced, giving American buyers a smaller Ford truck to spend their money on yet again. Though it wasn't a completely new truck when it made its U.S. debut, Ford engineers had significantly modified the model for North American customizers, making it plenty off-road capable and a viable daily driver.

No. 7 - Toyota Tundra (111,673 sold)

There's a redesigned Toyota Tundra on the horizon but that hasn't stopped Toyota from selling a significant number of current model year Tundras. The model has a dated interior and is fuel inefficient, but it's comfortable and has a long list of standard and available features.

No. 6 - Chevrolet Colorado (122,304 sold)

The Chevrolet Colorado benefits from its strong engine lineup, diverse array of build options, comfortable ride, and high towing capacity. For the 2020 model year the Colorado has gotten an updated infotainment system and an extended list of standard and available features.

No. 5 - GMC Sierra (232,323 sold)

Reviewers generally agree that the GMC Sierra has a great exterior but that its interior is lacking the refinement expected at its price point. Still, it's an incredibly capable truck, especially in its heavy-duty variants. The GMC Sierra 2500 AT4 is one of the best trucks you can buy if you want to match off-road prowess with on-road comfort and towing/hauling capability.

No. 4 - Toyota Tacoma (248,801 sold)

The Toyota Tacoma is the top-selling midsize truck in the U.S. It got a host of new equipment for the 2020 model year including standard Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, and Amazon Alexa integration. There's an available 10-way power-adjustable driver's seat and a larger touch screen as well.

No. 3 - Chevrolet Silverado (570,639 sold)

If you're not first, you're last. In the three-way Big Three battle for full-size truck supremacy, Ford has long held the top spot. Now, Ram has creeped on Chevrolet with its refined redesigned Ram 1500. The Silverado is one of the most capable trucks on the market today, but is dogged by its interior design and materials choices.

No. 2 - Ram Pickup (633,694 sold)

With a combination of sales from the Ram 1500 and HD pickups, Ram's pickups take second place in U.S. truck sales. Ram has found a winning formula that combines the expected capability of a truck with the refined interior more commonly found in premium or luxury SUV.

No. 1 - Ford F-Series (896,526 sold)

Ford still reigns supreme. With a diverse lineup of trucks, from the F-150 to the Super Duty and beyond, that features a number of best-in-class descriptions the automaker, Ford continues to give customers the capability and refinement they expect, which adding in fresh technology with every refresh and redesign.

Honda announces new Odyssey Sport

Sport is a new trim for the Odyssey minivan.

Honda

The Honda Odyssey may not be the most exciting vehicle in the world, but it's getting a new Sport model that at least makes it look the part. Honda will release the model for the 2023 model year, and the Odyssey line overall will be offered with a new Honda Service Pass, which includes two years of complimentary scheduled maintenance.

The Odyssey Sport slots into the Honda catalog between the EX-L and Touring trims. It comes with gloss-black exterior trim and black 19-inch wheels outside, and black leather with red stitching inside. The cabin comes with red accent lighting on the dash and in the footwells, and the roof pillars and headliner are both black. Under the hood, the Odyssey Sport gets the same 3.5-liter V6 from years past. It makes 280 horsepower and 262 pound-feet of torque, and comes paired with a ten=speed automatic transmission and front-wheel drive.

All Odyssey models come with Honda Sensing safety equipment, which includes adaptive cruise control and pedestrian detection. The 2023 van hasn't been crash-tested yet, but the 2022 model earned a Top Safety Pick + award, so it's likely the new model will be rated similarly.

Honda Service Pass is a new program for 2023+ Honda vehicles. It covers routine scheduled maintenance for up to two years or 24,000 miles, whichever comes first. Under the program, buyers get free oil changes, tire rotations, and multi-point inspections.
