Car companies are always trying to stay one step ahead of each other to build the vehicles consumers will like the best. Some nameplates (see Lincoln Blackwood) are only around for a single year, while others rack up millions of sales over the course of several decades. These 10 cars are the world’s best-selling vehicles of all time, and each has become an international icon in its own right.
The Impala has been on the American car scene in one form or another for almost 70 years. What used to be a gaudy halo sedan is today much more often bought by practical middle-aged people and rental car fleets, but stack up all those sales since 1948 and you get a lot of Impalas. The most recent model has been highly improved in every regard. The previous Impala ranked dead last among large family sedans in Consumer Reports ratings. Chevy's latest? First.
Total Sales: 14 million
