On the list of best-selling US cars of 2013, full size pickup trucks and utility vehicles have left behind energy-efficient small cars. Ford and GM are 2 giants which sold 20% more large vehicles this year.

There are still 45 days left in this year. But the buying trend and sales rate of vehicles have already decided that who is going to win race this year. Almost 16 million cars were sold this year. This is an upward growth as last year 14.5 million cars were sold. And an interesting article of Forbes depicts that the top selling US cars in 2013 are not just cars at all. What it means? Actually the full size pickup and utility vehicles have taken over small size cars. 20% more large vehicles were sold this year. General Motors and Ford Motor are the two names that have seen 20 percent more sales of full-size pickups this year.

The Forbes top 20 list of best selling cars is almost occupied by large vehicles instead of small lovely cars. And we almost agree with this list despite of few changes and ranking. Our top 10 list is as follows:

1. Ford F-Series

The Ford F-Series is the best selling pickup in the United States from previous 37 years. And it is also America's best-selling vehicle from 32 years in all. It is the #1 selling car in 2013. Its sales is almost 20% up from last year. The best selling Ford F-Series is the Ford F-150 followed by the Ford F-Series Super Duty pickups.

2. Chevrolet Silverado

The 2014 model of Chevrolet Silverado redefines its worth. It is highly improved model than 2013 and boosts the sales by more than 19% from previous year.

3. Toyota Camry 

This year, Toyota Camry has to face tough sales challenge due to redesigned Honda Accord, Ford Fusion and Nissan Altima. Hence the sales of Toyota Camry goes down by more than 2% with its 2014 model. But it is still the best selling passenger car in the US.

4. Honda Accord

The 2014 model of Honda Accord proves lucky for the manufacturer. Its sales goes 20% up in first six months of this year.

5. Ram 1500

Another best selling pickup. The 2014 model of Ram 1500 V6 engine proves to be more efficient due to its 8-speed automatic transmission. Its sales goes up for more than 22% from last year.

6. Nissan Altima

At last a car came up on the list. Americans always love midsize cars and these are best selling. But competition always remain tough for midsize cars. However, Nissan's Altima always there on top selling cars list. This year, Altima sales goes up for more than 6%.

7. Ford Fusion

Fusion sales are up 17 percent this year. Its 2013 model sold well than 2012. But it still have to go a long way to reach height like F-150.

8. Toyota Corolla / Toyota Matrix

Toyota reports both Corolla and Matrix sales together. Its more than 5% up so far this year. But Toyota Corolla sales is much more stronger than Matrix. In fact, Corolla remains the best selling vehicle in its class.  

9. Honda Civic

Honda Civic is one of the America's best-selling small car. But its sales see a negative trend in first half of the year and goes down by more than 2%. The 2013 model did not prove lucky for the car. However, in later half of the year, its sale goes up. Hope that it will score better till end of this year.

10. Ford Escape

The 2013 model Ford Escape is much more modern than previous old fashioned Escape. Its sale are up more than 14% which proves it still a hit among consumers.

And as the large vehicles are in high demand. It means that prices will go higher too. According to Kelley Blue Book, average transaction price for all full-size trucks is $39,189 in October which is 5% up from last year. And Ford is number one on the list of high prices. The average transaction price for Ford is more than $40,000. It might be because of its demand and the high quality of its more luxurious trucks than the others.
