Who's buying trucks in America? It’s an interesting question. There are some locations that one might naturally assume. Hopefully the answer will amuse you as you continue your search for a new or used vehicle at Duncanville Dodge.
Money Spent Per State
There are a few states specifically that tend to spend more money overall on new vehicles each year. California, Texas, New Mexico, North Dakota, Hawaii, and Alaska are all at the top for different reasons. Some locations in the north either require trucks and larger vehicles for work on farmland or to be able to endure the cold weather elements. Also, Alaska’s population is incredibly fluid, with new residents leaving and arriving every year. What about Texas?
Trucks for Sale
Ten out of fifty states towards the end of 2014 had top selling vehicles in their state, new and used, that weren’t trucks. That’s right—trucks outsold cars that year by the thousands, with North Dakota and Texas being the two regions to buy the most trucks. Texas culture promotes the importance of truck driving, as does the need in both Texas and the Dakotas to be properly outfitted for farm life.
A Funny Turn
For that year, Texas was also on the list of top 10 states where minivans were sold. Perhaps it’s a result of large families. Unsurprisingly, Florida was at the very top of this list to accommodate all of those vacationing families and caravanning retirees.
Trucks, especially oversized trucks with a myriad of hauling and weight-bearing capacities, are an unmistakable aspect of Texas culture. It’s why major car companies in America target their new trucks to the Texas market—because that’s where most of the new trucks in the United States are purchased. It’s an interesting thought to consider as you continue your vehicle search with Duncanville Dodge.
