In the same time frame, passenger car sales decreased by 1%. Light trucks made up 53.7% of the overall Canadian new vehicle market in March 2011, up from 50.6% in March 2010. 166 out of every 1000 new vehicles sold in Canada last month were either Ford F-Series trucks, Dodge Rams, Chevrolet Silverados, GMC Sierras, Ford Rangers, or Toyota Tacomas.
