If you're living in Montana, you need a vehicle that'll get you around in some of the most harsh conditions. I mean, sometimes winter can last as long as 9 months, and driving something that either has all-wheel or 4-wheel drive is almost a must.

Some brands are more popular than others and you would be hard-pressed to find a state with more Subaru's on the road than Montana, however, according to one website, Subaru is not the top vehicle of choice when it comes to Montanans.

While Chevy, GMCs, Ram, and Toyota are all popular throughout The Treasure State when it comes to Montana's favorite truck, it just so happens to be the best-selling vehicle not only in Montana but in the United States as well.
