Google has revealed the ten most searched cars in the United States as part of the company's annual "Year in Search" report.

This year's list has a number of surprises so we'll be counting down to the most searched model which will likely come as a surprise.

Starting with number ten, the Hyundai Tucson garnered a lot of attention thanks to its recent redesign.

The Lexus NX came in ninth place and has proved popular with consumers as the company has said they can't build them fast enough to satisfy demand.

The eighth spot goes to the Chevrolet Colorado which has shaken up the mid-size truck market.

Interestingly, the seventh and sixth place winners have a lot in common as they are both based on the same platform.  If you haven't guessed it by now, we're talking about the Jeep Renegade and the Fiat 500X.

Consumer interest in compact crossovers also helped to push the Honda HR-V into the fifth spot.  It debuted late last year with a 1.8-liter four-cylinder engine that develops 138 hp (103 kW) and 127 lb-ft (172 Nm) of torque.

The 2016 Chevrolet Camaro was one of two cars on the list and its recent redesign had fans clamoring for information.  It can be equipped with three different engines including a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder, a 3.6-liter V6, and a 6.2-liter V8 that produces 455 hp (339 kW) and 455 lb-ft (616 Nm) of torque.

The 2016 Toyota Tacoma came in third and it goes head-to-head with the eighth place Chevrolet Colorado.

An even bigger truck came in second place and it's the 2016 Chevrolet Silverado.  

The first place finisher comes as a bit of a surprise but it turns out a lot of people are really excited about the 2016 Chevrolet Malibu.  The car is a big improvement over its predecessor and our own Seyth Miersma called it a "tremendous leap forward for the Malibu badge" following a test drive earlier this year.
