February may be the shortest month of the year, but despite deficit of days, plenty of new cars found their way into driveways and garages across the United States. Car blog Kicking Tires recently published the top 10 best selling vehicles for February, and there is plenty to cheer in the data.

Automakers like General Motors and Toyota posted double digit sales gains, while some like Nissan experienced a record February showing. But there’s a real story about the Ford Fusion in the unit numbers as well.

The Ford Fusion made a huge showing in sales month-over-month, selling almost 8,800 more units in February than it did in January. It still trails market leaders Toyota with their best selling Camry and Honda and their Accord, but the Fusion is nipping at their heels. The Fusion now stands less than 500 units away from passing the Accord in total year to date sales, and it managed to pass Nissan’s Altima, despite that automaker’s record month.  The Ford Fusion hybrid recently made our list of the 15 top fuel economy cars as well as our list of the best new cars for teenagers.

Here’s the entire top 10 list of the best selling cars in February:

  1. Ford F-Series: 37,549
  2. Chevy Silverado: 31,728
  3. Toyota Camry: 27,212
  4. Toyota Corolla: 25,860
  5. Ford Fusion: 23,111
  6. Honda Accord: 22,916
  7. Nissan Altima: 20,808
  8. Honda Civic: 19,121
  9. Honda CR-V: 19,096
  10. Chevy Malibu: 19,092
