F-150 Tops Most-Searched List

By Staff Writer June 03, 2020

According to a new report published by ValuePenguin/LendingTree, the Ford F-150, Chevrolet Silverado and Honda Civic are the most searched cars in America. And while searches for cars, especially pickup trucks, trended downward during the onset of the COVID-19 epidemic in the United States, recent data suggests that searches for these popular models may be hitting annual highs. America’s five most searched cars are: Ford F-150; Chevrolet Silverado; Honda Civic; Toyota Tacoma and  Honda Accord.

Outside of the Northeast and California, a pickup truck was the most searched car in every state. High population density in the Northeast is why sedans like the Honda Civic and Honda Accord are more popular, whereas more open space out West and in the rest of the country makes driving a pickup more attractive and accessible.

According to Michael Hoffman, senior research analyst at ValuePenguin, “these findings provide a pulse on consumer demand trends in the U.S. auto industry, at a critical moment for the economy and auto manufacturers following several years of record-breaking vehicle sales.” He adds, “Several manufacturers like GM and Fiat Chrysler have expressed concern that demand may outstrip supply amid factory shutdowns due to the novel coronavirus.”
