Change in buying habits isn’t common in the United States. After all, the Ford F-series of trucks has been the top selling truck in the U.S. for 35 years, not to mention the best selling vehicle, period, for 30 years. In fact the F-Series was the only automobile that broke the half-million sales mark in 2011, and it’s well on the way to eclipsing or at least meeting it as we enter the last six months of 2012 with more than 300,000 sold thus far year to date.

Despite falling to third place for the month of June, it looks like Toyota will once again have the country’s best selling car in their Camry. Chevrolet eked out a slight win for the second best selling vehicle in units sold with their Silverado pickup, but the Camry is still nearly 20,000 units ahead for the year.

Chevrolet also took the fourth spot on the list with the Malibu. Redesigned for 2013, they’re just now trickling into dealerships, and we’re sure that there’s a mix of 2012 and 2013 model year Malibus in the sales figures. But it appears that the bowtie brand has a hit on its hands with their first true “world car.”

Honda makes appearances in slots number five and number seven with their Accord and Civic models respectively with the Ford Escape wedged in between the two. Like the Malibu, the Escape has been redesigned for 2013 and the new models just started hitting dealers in the past month.

After the break, check out the top 10 selling cars in the United States for the month of June 2012, with data courtesy of our friends at the Kicking Tires blog.
