In California, for instance, not only is the Toyota (TM - Get Report) 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 - Get Report), 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.
