The first four months of 2013 have been good to automakers and sales of full-size pickup trucks appear to be on the rebound.  The Ford F-Series took the number one spot of top selling vehicles in the U.S. with nearly a quarter of a million sold, up 19.1 percent from 2012. The Chevy Silverado took the second slot with a 23 percent increase in year-over-year sales.  Dodge Ram pickups made the list at number five.

The top selling car was the Toyota Camry, which actually saw declining sales over the previous year, as did the Nissan Altima at number six and the Honda Civic rounding out the top 10.  The biggest leap in year-over-year sales was realized by the Ford Escape with a 30.7 percent increase in sales for the totally redesigned crossover. Also redesigned, the 2013 Ford Fusion leads all American-made cars and is starting to take on long-time best selling cars like the Toyota Camry and the Honda Accord.

The top seven automakers reported overall new-car sales increases of 9.5 percent in April even with manufacturers holding the line on discounts and incentives.  In fact, new car prices were up 2% in April compared to 2012 prices.
