The Most Popular Cars by State

Car buyers on OfferUp have a diverse set of preferences, and are buying SUVs, trucks and sedans in large numbers

As more and more people get back to work, chip shortages continuing to impact supply chains, and no drop in used car pricing for the foreseeable future, used cars remain as popular as ever. As the nation's #1 mobile marketplace, OfferUp is the defacto choice for used car private listings and dealers who are looking to sell their vehicles in their communities and across the nation. This year, we wanted to give our dealers a head start going into the holiday and let you know what types of vehicles car buyers are looking at, engaging on, and buying from dealers.

While there are some surprise names on the list, there are also many names we all know and love on the list. In fact, recent Offerup user surveys show that many vehicles on the top cars of the 2021 list are also are receiving high buyer engagement due to their perceived reliability, price, and resale value.
