1. Toyota(TM) Camry
Number sold through September:
Difference from 2012:
Recall? What recall?
The Camry has put some serious mileage between itself and its troubled past and remains the most popular car in the U.S. Its sales are nearly identical to the Chevy Silverado and exceed those of the Dodge Ram. For yet another year, it's going to be the best-selling non-pickup vehicle in the U.S. Is it the combine 30 miles per gallon? The pindrop-quiet interior? The Bluetooth connection or the Entune App Suite entertainment and information center?
Maybe its the fact that it's tied with the soon-to-be-departed Dodge Avenger for the title of Most American-made midsize. A full 75% of its parts are made in the U.S., with the folks on the line in Georgetown, Ky., handling the assembly. Toyota's been churning out the Camry here since 1998 and, unlike its counterparts making the Avenger, doesn't plan to stop any time soon.
