DETROIT (TheStreet) -- Even a quick glimpse at the top vehicles in each of the five biggest states (population-wise) shows that regional preferences vary widely.
In California, for instance, not only is the Toyota (TM) Camry the state's favorite new car, but also every one of California's top five vehicles is an import, made by either Toyota or Honda (HMC), according to figures compiled by TrueCar.
By contrast, Texas, the second-largest state, is pickup country: the top three vehicles are pickups made by each of the Detroit Three."The differences in buyer behavior based on location can be dramatic," said TrueCar analyst Jesse Toprak, in a prepared statement. "This data shows that the car is a reflection of not just the person, but also where they live."
