The military loves trucks, according to a report released by the United Services Automobile Association.

SAA’s top 10 list of vehicles is based on internal data compiled from its members, who are service members, veterans or their family members.

The data is based on what vehicle was added to the members’ insurance policies between Jan. 1 to Dec. 31, 2020.

Earning the top spot was the Ford F-150, according to the ranking list released by the insurer this month.

Other trucks making the top four spots included the Dodge Ram, Chevrolet Silverado and Toyota Tacoma — earning the No. 2, 3 and 4 spots respectively.

USAA’s top three spots mirror Kelly Blue Book’s assessment of the best full-sized trucks for 2021 based on consumer and expert ratings. USAA also lists the Ford F-150 in its No. 1 spot, the Dodge Ram as No. 2 and the Chevrolet Silverado as No. 3.

The top 10 vehicles purchased by active and former military USAA members and their family members are:

1. Ford F-150

2. Dodge Ram

3. Chevy Silverado

4. Toyota Tacoma

5. Jeep Wrangler

6. Toyota Camry

7. Subaru Outback

8. Toyota Corolla

9. Honda Accord

10. Subaru Forester
