5 vehicles that rich people love 

Why’s that? Many “regular cars” now offer the same features that come equipped with expensive vehicles.

MaritzCX told USA Today that there’s been a steady shift out of luxury vehicles as more wealthy people opt to buy SUVs and trucks instead.

That’s certainly reflected in the top 5 list below:

1. Ford F-150 (MSRP starting at $26,730)

Although the vehicles on this list have starting prices of $30,000 or less, they can easily cost more than $40,000 once you add on the features that you really want.

USA Today reports that a third of Ford F-150s sell in the “luxury price realm.”

Interestingly, the Honda Civic is also on the list of top-selling vehicles for those making $400,000 or more, behind Lexus RX350 and Tesla Model S.
