Everyone loves winners, and here’s a quick overview of the year’s top ten cars and trucks so far. Keep in mind that trucks is a big tent as defined by the industry: anything not officially classified as a passenger car. Any surprises?

    I think it's misleading to include a six cylinder, short bed 150 as the same vehicle as a monster dually 350 that is practically a super-duty.

    They sold more Camrys in two weeks then Astras sold in a year and a half.

    To me the most amazing vehicle on these lists is the Focus, in its last year of production for the current generation and IMO not at all competitive with any other offerings in its segment. That a vehicle as old as the Focus is still be a top ten seller is astounding. Guess it says something about the buyers. Actually, it says something about the vehicles. Ford has a good little car in the Focus, and they know it. It also comes with many available options that are simply not available on some other cars in this segment, such as heated seats, leather interior, Sync, traction control, all in a refined-over-the-years package. Doesn't surprise me one bit.

      The last one I test drove was an 07 so I'm not familiar with the changes made in 08. My thought about it is the Focus is a ten year old car about to be replaced and virtually every other entry in this segment is much newer. As I said previously I'm glad it's selling so well as it's built in MI.

    I dunno - I think the Focus is a homely little beast - but women probably love to take them home, dry them off and give them a little dish of cat food...
