Gen Z loves a Japanese car.

Different generations love different cars, according to a new report by Insider, although some groups (millennials and boomers) are closer in taste than one would expect.

The Toyota Camry (the 2023 model starts at $26,200 while used versions from 2014 are going for about $9,000) is a favorite of Gen Z (aged 18 to 24) as are two other Toyota models. Millennials and older Boomers both love the Toyota RAV4, an SUV with outdoor and hybrid versions.

Generation X is driving the Chevrolet Silverado. Boomers, which were spilt into two categories, also liked the Ford F-Series, a.k.a., the Ford family of pickup trucks, like the F-150 LARIAT, whose 2023 model starts at over $57,000.

A report from Hagerty, a company that insures specialty cars, also found that younger people are interested in Asian cars, particularly Toyotas.

"Gen–Z is the only generation who call Hagerty for insurance quotes on more Asian cars than European," the company wrote in a summary of the results.
