A lot may have changed in 2020, but one thing that remained constant was Americans' love of the pickup truck. The experts at iSeeCars.com analyzed more than 12.9 million vehicle sales in 2020 and has released a study listing the most popular vehicle overall, by state, and even down to by metropolitan region. The study found, unsurprisingly, that Ford's F-150 pickup proved to be both the most popular new vehicle sold, along with the most popular used vehicle sold in 2020.
"The Ford F-150 has been America's undisputed best-selling new car for over 40 years, and the popularity of pickup trucks help contribute to its high volume of sales," said iSeeCars executive analyst Karl Brauer.
Ford's F-150 was the most popular used vehicle in 31 of the top 50 metropolitan areas and 39 out of the 50 United States. The Ford F-150 was also the most popular new vehicle sold in 25 of the top 50 metros and 22 of 50 states.
Chevrolet's Silverado 1500 landed at number two on both the lists of most popular new and used vehicles sold in 2020. In contrast to the F-150, Silverado finds itself as the most popular new vehicle in just five of the top 50 metropolitan areas and doesn't make the list of used vehicles. Silverado was the most popular used vehicle in the state of New Hampshire, and it topped the list of new vehicles in Iowa, Indiana, Missouri, North Carolina, and Oklahoma.
Also making the list of most popular trucks was the Ram 1500 at third on the used vehicles list and fifth of new vehicles sold in 2020. Toyota's Tacoma found itself in the tenth-place slot on the new vehicle list. The Ram 1500 was the most popular new vehicle sold in Alaska, Arizona, Michigan, and North Dakota. The GMC Sierra was the most popular vehicle sold in Arkansas and South Dakota. And the Nissan Frontier was the most popular vehicle sold in Hawaii.

Despite the success of the Chevrolet Silverado 1500, its platform mate and cousin, the GMC Sierra 1500, only manages to be the most popular new vehicle sold in two states. It misses both top ten lists entirely.
