While the government shows some other model as edging out the Ford Focus as the number one vehicle purchased under the Cash for Clunkers program, Edmunds.com and CNNMoney.com found different results altogether.
According to CNN Money, the government considers different powertrains as unique models. This would divide the Ford Escape into six separate models with all of the various drivetrain combinations of two-wheel drive, four-wheel drive and hybrid.
So, according to Edmunds.com, the most-purchased vehicles under the Cash for Clunkers program, are:
1 Ford Escape
2 Ford Focus
3 Jeep Patriot
4 Dodge Caliber
5 Ford F-150
6 Honda Civic
7 Chevrolet Silverado
8 Chevrolet Cobalt
9 Toyota Corolla
10 Ford Fusion
The Senate voted on Friday to provide an additional $2 billion into the Cash for Clunkers program to extend the popular program.
