Illustration for article titled Top Ten Best Selling Cars: May 2009

Parsing the sales numbers from May, the boys at put together this month's list of the top ten best selling cars. They found lower gas prices increase U.S. sales of trucks and SUVs. America! Truck yeah!

As we've seen almost every month since the huge drop in fuel prices, the biggest sellers are the biggest vehicles — the Ford F-series and Chevy Silverado pickups. Heck, even at the foreign automakers, we're seeing mid-size sedans beating out small sedans with the Camry outselling the Corolla and the Accord outselling the Civic.

1.) Ford F-Series: 33,381
2.) Chevy Silverado: 31,463
3.) Toyota Camry: 31,325
4.) Toyota Corolla: 23,576
5.) Honda Accord: 22,597
6.) Honda Civic: 20,723
7.) Ford Fusion: 19,786
8.) Chevy Impala: 18,709
9.) Nissan Altima: 18,408
10.) Ford Escape: 16,391

What I am most surprised at is the Ford Escape. The little SUV is what, 9 years old, with relatively few changes? The fact that the Edge isn't outselling it speaks volumes. And I see the Altima is right up there with the Camry and Accord.
