Ford F-150 Most-Appraised Vehicle in 2013
After giving up a few months to smaller models, the Ford F-150 reclaimed its spot as the most-appraised vehicle in Canada, according to the December TradeTracker Used Vehicle Market Report.
The F-150 was followed by the Honda Civic Sedan (No. 2) and the Toyota Corolla (No. 3).
In the November report, the Civic Sedan topped the list as the most-appraised vehicle in Canada, ousting the Corolla from the No. 1 spot.
The battle for the top three spots has included these three units for the majority of 2013.
And the F-150 came in as the most appraised vehicles for the whole year, as well.
Not surprisingly, in second place for all of 2013 was the Civic Sedan, followed by the Corolla.
