To find how much difference there is in our car-buying habits, we asked Kelley Blue Book to pull the data from the start of the year to find the best-selling ride in each state.

Not surprisingly, Ford F-Series family of trucks dominated the list, coming in at number one in more than 30 states.

Oklahoma bucked the geographic trend—the most popular car there is the Nissan Altima sedan.

Here's the full map, you can click to enlarge.
