Texas is Ford F Series country, but one does see many Tundras with the bumper sticker "Born In Texas, Built in Texas." It references the fact that the Toyota is assembled in San Antonio, I think it also helps pick up truck drivers feel better about the fact that they bought a Japanese make vehicle.

I drive a Chevy Silverado in Southern California, I can count more Chevy/GMC trucks down my street than I can Ford trucks.

The silver Toyota Camry seems to be the most generic but popular car everywhere I visit in the USA.

I got three relatives with Tundras. 70k for a truck, lol.

Actually kind of surprising. The Prius is probably the most common car I see. The only cars that gives it a run for it's money is 3 series BMWs and C class Mercedes.

I am astounded at how regional the top vehicle brands are.

Hondas in states with a lot of urban professionals (commuters)

Chevy in the Great Lakes

Ford in the lower Mississippi west to the High Plains/Rockies

Toyota in the coastal SE

Dodge in the West

Subaru in liberal areas with mountains/snow.

I see plenty of Subarus in Indiana since they have the manufacturing plant in Lafayette.

Everywhere in New Mexico has trucks everywhere, they are family vehicles. Texas also.

I haven't been to the Northern Rocky Mountain states but I picture everyone owning a truck up there. Moreso than the South....easily.

Ditto Ford F-150s in Michigan since they are built in Dearborn. At least where I live in Michigan, Ford trucks easily outnumber Chevy trucks at least two to one, it isn't even close, and the Dodge Ram is a distant third. Tundras and Ridgelines are made fun of around here and rarely do you ever see one on the road.
