Here is more information about the Top 5:
Depending on which list you read (it’s not over until it’s over), it appears that the Ford F-Series will retain its top title for the 43rd year, outselling the Ram Pickup, so far, by nearly 150,000 units (through September). The starting price for this truck is below-average, making it a solid value. (usnews.com, 2019)
Pros: Best in class towing and hauling, powerful engine
Cons: Middle of the road interior compared to its competitors
The Ram Pickup, fully re-designed for 2019, so far, has only slightly outsold the Chevy Silverado by a handful of units. The new design features reduced weight, increased payload and towing capacity, and more rear seat space. (edmunds.com, 2019)
Pros: smooth-riding suspension, quiet cabin
Cons: driver assist bells and whistles are limited to the higher trims
The Silverado’s place on the list includes six months of sales for the HD model relative to the way that Dodge and Ford report deliveries. The 2019 model hauls more and weighs less and features Chevy’s new Dynamic Fuel Management (DFM) technology. (caranddriver.com, 2019)
Pros: powerful engine, user-friendly tech features
Cons: interior, obvious badging, price (High Country – $66,900)
Buyers responded to the RAV4’s new look and award-winning interior. Changes to this year’s model include improved dynamics and active safety equipment. (usnews.com, 2019)
Pros: gas mileage, cargo space
Cons: loud engine, lackluster infotainment, pricey ($40,000)
The Honda CR-V has remained essentially the same since 2017 but is still a big hit with consumers. Experts recommend a pass on the base model (LX) and opt for the EX. With its more powerful engine and better fuel efficiency, you’d expect a significant price-jump but the EX still sports a reasonable sticker price. (edmunds.com, 2019)
Pros: turbocharged engine, comfortable ride, roomy interior
Cons: finicky interior touchscreen, unreliable navigation system (optional), base trim’s engine
