2013 Most Rented Vehicles In The USA

Hi all,

2013 is coming to an end and its about this time of year we meet up with our convertiblemustangcar hire USA supplier to discuss the year and look to the future. Its in preparation for these meetings that some interesting facts cross my desk.

As with every year we like to take a look at the most popular vehicle types rented on U.S. Rent A Car and compare them to the year before. I started posting these stat’s in 2011, you can view them here - https://blog.usrentacar.co.uk/index.php/2011/11/23/2011-most-rented-vehicles-in-the-usa/

2013 has seen our most varied car mix for a long time the difference between 1st place and 10th was surprisingly small.

Here’s what 2012′s top 10 looked like;

  1. Intermediate Sports Utility – Ford Escape or similar
  2. 7 Seater Minivan – Dodge Caravan or similar
  3. Convertible 2dr – Ford Mustang or similar
  4. Economy 2dr – Chevrolet Aveo or similar
  5. Full Size 4dr – Dodge Charger or similar
  6. Intermediate 4dr – Hyundai Sonata or similar
  7. Standard Sports Utility – Jeep Grand Cherokee or similar
  8. Full Size 7 seater Sports Utility – Ford Explorer or similar
  9. 12 Seater Minivan – Ford E-350 or similar
  10. Full Size 2dr – Dodge Charger or similar

In 2012 the Intermediate Sports Utility was out in front by a long way and the Full Size vehicles claimed 2 places..

Here’s 2013′s Most Rented Vehicles

  1. Convertible 2dr – Ford Mustang or similar
  2. Intermediate Sports Utility – Ford Escape or similar
  3. 7 Seater Minivan – Dodge Caravan or similar
  4. Intermediate 4dr – Hyundai Sonata or similar
  5. Full Size 4dr – Chevrolet Impala or similar
  6. Compact 4dr – Ford Focus or similar
  7. Economy 4dr – Chevrolet Aveo or similar
  8. Intermediate 2dr – Dodge Avenger or similar
  9. Economy 2dr – Chevrolet Aveo or similar
  10. Standard SUV – Grand Jeep Cherokee or similar

So in 3 years we’ve now seen 3 different car groups top the charts, 2011 was ruled by the minivan, 2012 the intermediate sports utility and this year the Convertible.

I wonder what 2014 will bring, I’m putting an early bet on the Intermeidate reclaiming its spot.

Kind regards,
