The end of the year is here which means lots of top this and that lists to end off the year. Google has just released its top searched results from 2014.
For non-car related searches, the late Robin Williams took the honour for most searched term. Apple’s new iPhone 6 got the nod for most searched gadget and “Ebola symptoms” was the most searched disease. Any shockers here? Likely not.
Same goes for the most searched automaker: Ford. It’s really no surprised with the new F-150 bowing this year (which is the best selling vehicle in North America) and the new Mustang, which always makes a splash, especially when a new version is introduced like it was this year.
Jeep took second place for most searched automaker, and that likely has to do with the reintroduction of the Cherokee with its un-Jeep-like styling cues as well as the introduction of the Renegade. Dode took third place and that almost certainly has to do with the fact that the refreshed Charger and Challenger also pack over 700 horsepower in Hellcat form.
For Canada specifically, the F-150 took honours for most searched for and unsurprisingly the Honda Civic took second place with the Mazda3, Porsche 911 and Ford Escape rounding out the top five.
Any surprises on the list? Sound off in the comments.
