It was a great year for trucks in the auto industry, and this is proven by AutoTrader's list of the 20 most popular new vehicles of the year, half of which are trucks.

No surprise as the Ford F-150 remains in the top spot, followed by the jeep Wrangler, and then the Ram 1500.

"The full-size truck segment is historically the most popular vehicle segment on our site, but it grew this year to garner more than 20 percent share of shopper interest," said Isabelle Helms, vice president of Research and Market Intelligence at AutoTrader. "We believe this is due to a combination of growth in the housing and construction sectors and the number of models that were all-new for the 2013 and 2014 model years."

The list is compiled by analyzing the number of car shoppers who click on a listing for a new car for sale on AutoTrader.

Most popular vehicles on AutoTrader of 2013:
1.Ford F-150
2.Jeep Wrangler
3.Ram 1500
4.Ford Mustang
5.Chevrolet Silverado 1500
6.Chevrolet Camaro
7.Jeep Grand Cherokee
8.Ford F-250
9.Chevrolet Corvette
10.Ram 2500
11.Toyota Tacoma
12.Dodge Challenger
13.GMC Sierra C/K1500
14.Honda Accord
15.Chevrolet Silverado 2500
16.Ford Fusion
17.Toyota Tundra
18.Ford F-350
19.Dodge Charger
20.Ford Focus

I was very surprised that the Wrangler ranked above the Mustang. Both are really popular niche cars, but I thought far more people would be interested in the Mustang. No Jeep Cherokee on the list either. Maybe that's because it wasn't actually on sale until the very end of 2013.
