In the U.S., the Ford F-150 is purchased every 39.7 seconds. It’s one of 11 vehicles in the 100-second club.
Bloomberg studied 2016 auto sales in the United States, discovering that the top 11 best-selling models in the U.S. accounted for roughly one out of every four vehicles purchased. They nicknamed it the 100-second club, since each of these 11 models are purchased at least once every 100 seconds.
The 11 fastest selling vehicles in the United States:
- Ford F-150
- Chevrolet Silverado
- Ram pickup
- Toyota Camry
- Toyota Corolla
- Honda Civic
- Honda CR-V
- Toyota RAV4
- Honda Accord
- Nissan Altima
- Nissan Rogue
The Ford F-150 easily found itself at the top of the list, with one truck being sold every 39.7 seconds – beating the Silverado by 15.9 seconds. The Nissan Rogue just made its way into the 100-second club, selling one Rogue every 98 seconds.
Consumer Reports tested more than 70 new car models and found the Audi Q7, Lincoln MKX, and Honda Civic to be among the best.
Every year, dozens of new and completely redesigned vehicles are introduced to the automotive marketplace in the United States. Consumer Reports, a nonprofit organization that provides unbiased product testing and ratings, takes these new models and puts them to the test. Every new car is rigorously tested and only the best-of-the-best receive a Consumer Reports top rating.
In 2016, Consumer Reports chose six new models as the best cars of the year. On the list were the Audi Q7, BMW 7 Series, Honda Civic, Kia Optima, Lincoln MKX, and Toyota Prius. Each of these models showed fresh style, excellent functionality, and creative touches.
The three-row Audi SUV made the list, having proven to Consumer Reports that you really can have it all. They praised the SUV for its athletic handling, powerful engine, and commendable 20 mpg. With an inviting interior, “cushy ride”, and standard safety features, the Audi Q7 is great choice for drivers in the luxury SUV market.
The Lincoln MKX is a midsized SUV based off of the non-luxury Ford Edge. Consumer Reports commends the American car company for creating an SUV that “instills confidence and puts a smile on your face”. In the Lincoln MKX, you can expect a quiet, tranquil ride surrounded by a luxury interior and “supremely” comfortable seats.
The Honda compact sedan made its way back to the top of the list, overcoming shortcomings from the previous Civic generations. The sedan offers drivers a refined ride and excellent handling. The interior offers passengers a roomy ride and high-quality materials, which Consumer Reports called a “huge improvement” for the model. With a “sufficiently powerful” engine, the Civic gives you 32 mpg and the option for a stronger turbo.
While Consumer Reports sang praise for these six models, not everyone was feeling the love. Among the vehicles named the worst of 2016 were the Smart ForTwo pint-sized city car, and the similarly fuel-efficient Chevrolet Spark designed for city driving.

Wards 10 Best User Experiences evaluates the user-friendliness of a vehicle’s tech and safety systems.
WardsAuto recently announced the winners of their 2016 Wards 10 Best UX competition, and six Military AutoSource manufacturers made the list: Audi, Chrysler, Ford, Honda, Infiniti, and Mercedes-Benz.
The User Experience competition is a spin-off of Wards 10 Best Interiors, which judges a vehicle’s interior on a more broad spectrum, looking at aesthetic, ergonomic and design aspects. The 10 Best UX list looks at a vehicle’s touchscreens, navigation systems, infotainment, voice controls and smartphone connection efficiency.
Drew Winter, WardsAuto Senior Content Director, said that judges are “trying to quantify how easy it is overall to interact with a vehicle.” They are checking to see if the controls are easy to understand and work as they are designed to. They also check that driver-assistance systems, such as adaptive cruise control and lane warnings, are reliable.
After two months of evaluating 29 all-new or redesigned light vehicles available in the United States, the WardsAuto editors selected their top 10 choices. Among that list are the Audi Q7, Chrysler Pacifica, Ford Escape, Honda Ridgeline, Infiniti Q50, and Mercedes E-Class.
Visit WardsAuto.com to read what made these six vehicles stand out, earning them a spot on the list. To learn about your privileged military pricing on Audi, Chrysler, Ford, Honda, Infiniti, and Mercedes-Benz, visit www.militaryautosource.com .

There are many things to consider when you’re shopping for your next vehicle. But no question is debated as frequently as the decision whether to buy new or used.
It’s commonly thought that buying a used car is the cheapest way into your next vehicle, but that’s not always the case. When you factor in vehicle maintenance and repairs, buying used can actually cost you more over the years.
Buying your new vehicle from Military AutoSource comes with even more advantages, including better prices, more choices, and exclusive safeguards.
Below are six advantages of buying a new car from Military AutoSource
1. Get exactly what you want
You can custom order your vehicle to be exactly the way you want, building your dream car with all your desired options
2. Convenient delivery
You can take delivery of your vehicle overseas, or arrange to pick it up when you return stateside. This allows you to avoid the hassle of rental cars and means your ride is ready to go when you are.
If you deliver overseas, you do not have to pay tax! For stateside delivery, you have the convenience of budgeting up front any costs for state and local taxes, registration, and license fees at the time you pick up/and or register your vehicle stateside.
4. Factory warranty
Your new vehicle comes with a factory warranty from the manufacturer and is valid both stateside and overseas. You may also purchase an extended service plan that includes comprehensive component coverage along with towing, rental and trip interruption. Plan coverage up to 75,000 miles. This coverage is valid both stateside and overseas.
5. Fuel efficiency
Buying a new car means higher Miles Per Gallon (MPG) ratings and lower annual fuel costs. Older cars have lower efficiency that gets less effective over time.
6. Safety and technology features
Your new car will have the newest safety features and innovations, and be equipped with the newest technology and innovations now standard or available.

Edmunds and Parents magazine teamed up to find the top vehicles for families in 2016.
What makes a vehicle a “family car”? That can depend on what you’re looking for. Edmunds and Parents magazine reviewed the top vehicles for families in almost every category, from crossovers to wagons.
See who made the ‘Top 10 Family Vehicles for 2016’ list!
2016 Honda Civic – Best Compact Sedan
Ronald Montoya, Senior Consumer Advice Editor at Edmunds wrote that “The 2016 Honda Civic is perfect for families who want a spacious sedan that is more maneuverable and less expensive than a full-size sedan.”
2016 Nissan Murano – Best Crossovers
“The 2016 Nissan Murano is for families who want a spacious two-row crossover with a bit more premium interior,” wrote Montoya in his review of the Murano. “What it lacks in a third row it makes up for in space and comfortable seats for both front and rear passengers.
2016 Toyota Sienna – Best Minivan
When reviewing the Sienna, Montoya wrote “It’s one of the best minivans in the business, offering seating for up to eight. It’s also the only minivan with available all-wheel drive.”
2016 Honda Pilot – Best SUV
If you’re looking for a great family SUV, Montoya advises “If minivans aren’t for you but you still need to haul the whole family, the 2016 Honda Pilot is our pick among SUVs. The Pilot has the most versatile interior this side of a minivan. There is a multitude of handy bins and twice as many cupholders as seats.”
