Movement for Trucks and SUVs on New Vehicle List; Pre-Owned Vehicle Lists Stable

Ford was the No. 1 most-searched brand for new and used vehicles in January.  The only change noted for the most-searched vehicle brands was that Volkswagen edged out Hyundai in January to take the No. 10 spot on the list of new-car brands. Those two brands have been in a months-long battle for a spot in the top 10.

On the list of the top 20 most-searched new cars on AutoTrader.com in January, there were five newcomers to the list month-over-month.  The new Chevrolet Camaro came in at No. 11, up 10 spots month-over-month; the new Ford Explorer came in at No. 13, up an impressive 31 places from December; the new Chevrolet Corvette leapt eight places to land at No. 17; the new Toyota Tacoma moved up five places to the No. 19 spot and the new Hyundai Sonata crept up four places to the No. 20 position. Of these newcomers, only the Hyundai Sonata has been aggressively marketed for its fuel economy.

There was little change in the lists of the most-searched used vehicles and most-searched CPO vehicles month-over-month.  With only slight position changes here and there, there was only one newcomer to each of the top 20 pre-owned lists month-over-month—and both were Ford vehicles.  On the list of the most-searched used vehicles, the Ford Explorer rose three places month-over-month to the No. 19 spot.  On the list of most-searched CPO vehicles, the Ford Mustang also rose three places month-over-month, landing at No. 18.

"Throughout the last half of 2010, we were seeing asking prices increase steadily across the board, which really points to healthy signs for the economy," AutoTrader’s Perry continued.  "Prices increase when demand is up and sales are healthy.  Overall, January was a great month for auto sales, so we’ll be keeping a close eye on the average asking prices for CPO vehicles in February to see if this is an anomaly or if the prices continue to fall."

The last time that the majority of average asking prices for CPO vehicles took a year-over-year dip was during September of 2010.  That time, it turned out to be an anomaly, as prices rebounded nicely the next month.
