Ford F-150, Mustang On Edmunds’ List Of Most-Researched Vehicles In 2016

The Ford F-150 full-size pickup and Ford Mustang pony car were among the ten most-researched vehicles on in 2016, injecting some diversity into a list largely dominated by SUVs from Japanese car brands.

In fact, Ford was the only American automaker to make the list this year, as it was last year, too. The Ford F-150 – North America’s best-selling vehicle – moved down in the rankings from No. 5 in 2015 to No. 9 in 2016. The Mustang took the No. 8 spot both years.

Dominating the list was Japanese automaker Honda, which saw four of its models make the list of the ten most-researched passenger vehicles on Edmunds: the Accord, Civic, CR-V, and Pilot. Toyota’s Highlander and RAV4 made the list, as well, along with the Mazda CX-5 and Subaru Forester. Only two of those vehicles – the Accord, and the Civic – aren’t SUVs.

“As SUVs become more fuel efficient, shoppers are finding they can have the best of both worlds – utility and fuel economy,” says Edmunds Senior Analyst Jeremy Acevedo. “But there is still a strong contingent of consumers who love their cars, and it remains an important segment for automakers’ investment.”

Here is the full list of Edmunds‘ most-researched passenger vehicles in 2016:

Position Make, Model Vehicle Type
1 Honda CR-V Compact Crossover
2 Honda Accord Mid-Size Car
3 Honda Civic Compact Car
4 Toyota RAV4 Compact Crossover
5 Honda Pilot Mid-Size Crossover
6 Toyota Highlander Mid-Size Crossover
7 Mazda CX-5 Compact Crossover
8 Ford Mustang Sports Coupe
9 Ford F-150 Light-Duty Truck
10 Subaru Forester Compact Crossover
