Quick trivia challenge for the gearhead in your life: what is the most shipped car in America?
The obvious response might be to rattle off the 5 best selling cars in America. The more of a car there are, the more they must be shipped, right? Turns out, it’s a little more complicated than that.
The most shipped cars in America are the cars that are worth shipping. They’re a healthy mix of very popular, reliable cars that last a lifetime; sporty, valuable cars that owners treasure; and practical vehicles that provide utility value.
5. Jeep Wrangler
Driving doesn’t get much more fun than the Jeep Wrangler. It’s the quintessential adventure-mobile, and it’s no surprise that people want to ship them to where the action is.
4. Toyota Camry
Gracing the American family with its refined balance of reliability and reputation, the Camry is an unrivaled favorite among those looking to buy – and ship – a sensible vehicle.
3. Ford Mustang
Another wildly popular Ford vehicle, the Mustang is the embodiment of the traditional American muscle car, and one of the most popular classic cars on the road. Collectors and sellers alike are eager to get their hands on a Mustang, whether brand new or 60 years old.
2. Ford F-150
This one makes perfect sense. The F-150 is the best-selling car in America, and has been for decades. More than 26 million of them since they were introduced in 1948. One of the symbols of America, people are happy to ship their F-150 to wherever they need to be.
1. BMW 3-Series
This German staple has been around since 1975. Enthusiasts and casual drivers alike love this Beamer for its iconic performance and style. Making up 30 percent of BMW’s overall sales, it’s no wonder folks are shipping them across the country in record numbers.
Notably missing from the list is the entire Honda lineup. As some of the most sold cars in America, it’s a surprising stat.
