Last year was another banner year for the Ford F-Series pickup truck.

Do you have your sights set on buying a new vehicle this year? If so, then chances are you’ll be taking one of these best-sellers for a spin. But before you do, compare auto insurance quotes ahead of your test drive for a truer picture of the cost of ownership. Don’t wait to fall in love with a new set of wheels, only to find out it costs a lot to insure, after you’ve purchased it.

Top 10 Selling Vehicles in Canada

Without question, the best-selling vehicle in Canada is the Ford F-Series pickup truck, according to sales information from Good Car Bad Car. In fact, the competition isn’t even close. With more than 155,000 new trucks sold in 2017, the Ford pickup outsold the Ram pickup—its closest competitor—by almost 57,000 units.

Shopping for a New Vehicle? Shop for Car Insurance Too

New or used, what you park in your driveway is one of the key factors in calculating your car insurance rate. But, not all insurers will rate your new set of wheels equally, which is why you can’t assume your current insurer will continue to offer you the best price for your coverage. When shopping for a new car this year, keep in mind to shop for insurance too.
