What are the most popular vehicles in America? We can get an idea of which new cars and SUVs by checking the Edmunds website. With about 18 million shoppers visiting Edmunds.com each month to find the car or SUV that's right for them, they know which vehicles people are looking to buy in 2021.
It's no surprise that SUVs and pickups make up the top-10 most popular models. It is a surprise that a wagon, the 2021 Subaru Outback, is number nine on the list to start the new year. The Outback is even ahead of the number one selling vehicle in America, the Ford F-150.
The SUVs and trucks researched most often that attracted the most car-shopper consideration in 2021 are the Jeep Wrangler, Kia Telluride, Honda CR-V, Ram 1500, Toyota RAV4, Jeep Grand Cherokee, Mazda CX-5, Toyota Highlander, Subaru Outback, and Ford F-150.
What makes the new-generation 2021 Outback so popular?
The SUV/Wagon features standard Symmetrical all-wheel-drive, high ground clearance for recreation, a new 2.4-liter turbocharged engine in the Outback XT. X Mode for off-road adventures, heated front seats, and plenty of cargo-carrying ability.
The Outback has attracted customers with active lifestyles for decades who use their vehicles for recreation on the weekends, and it's what sets it apart from the crowd. The Outback delivers all this along with a car-like ride you won't find in a typical SUV.
The 2021 Subaru Outback gets the highest crash scores of any SUV. The Outback earned a Top Safety Pick + winner from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), and all trims come with Subaru's EyeSight driver-assist technology.
The next-generation 2021 Subaru Outback is rugged, fuel-efficient, family-friendly, safe, and it's fun to drive, which makes it one of the top researched new SUVs on Edmunds.com. Outback is popular because of its "go anywhere" attitude.
What is the price of the 2021 Subaru Outback?
The 2021 Outback comes in seven trim levels, base $27,845, Premium ($30,095), Limited ($34,645), Onyx Edition XT ($36,195), Limited XT ($38,545), Touring ($39,045), and Touring XT ($40,995).
