Written By: CarPro | Feb 12, 2024 2:29:57 PM

As we know, pickup trucks are hugely popular in the U.S. So much so they were the three top-selling vehicles in 2023, with the Ford F-150 leading the way for the 47th straight year, followed by the Chevrolet Silverado and Ram 1500.

iSeeCars says pickup trucks account for 16.5 percent of all vehicles on the road. So which states drive the most pickups? iSeeCars is sharing its latest rankings by state. Wyoming is #1. Texas #19. California  is near the bottom of the list at #47.

Here are some of the study highlights:

  • Wyoming is the state with the most pickup trucks and has 2.2 more pickup trucks on the road than the average state. Known as "the Cowboy State", Wyoming is a Western Rocky Mountain state with plenty of unpaved roads, rugged terrain and harsh winters, all of which require off-road and foul-weather capability. 
  • Texas, which leads the nation in pickup truck sales volume, ranks 19th in the nation for the state’s total vehicle share.
  • The top 10 states with the highest share of pickup trucks are Northern and mountainous states.
  • New Jersey has the lowest share of pickup trucks at 7.9 percent, which is more than half the national average.
  • With the exception of Illinois, the 10 states with the lowest shares of pickup trucks are all coastal states.

Here's a look at the Top 5 states as ranked by iSeeCars:

1 Wyoming 37.1%
2 Montana 34.7%
3 North Dakota 32.2%
4 Idaho 29.3%
5 South Dakota 28.8%
