Top 5 Best-Selling Trucks In Canada – March 2012


2013 Dodge Ram 1500 Interior

While the Toyota Tacoma is the leader of the pack when it comes to non-full-size trucks, the drop-off from March 2012’s fourth-ranked truck to the fifth-ranked Tacoma is an astounding 2465 units. In other words, for the Tacoma to have risen to the Chevrolet Silverado’s level, sales would have needed to rise 276% from March 2011 levels. Instead, Tacoma sales dropped 7% year-over-year. 

Ignoring the basement dwellers – the Tacoma sort of sits at the top of the stairs peeking out the basement door – the four best-selling trucks in Canada accounted for 15.1% of all new vehicle sales in Canada in March 2012. The Ford F-Series alone brought in more than 6% of the approximately 158,000 auto sales last month. 

GM’s twins didn’t succumb to the ignominy of February’s rankings. A month ago GoodCarBadCar reported that both the Ford F-Series and Dodge Ram out-sold the GMC Sierra and Chevrolet Silverado combined. In March, during the Ram pickup’s best-ever Canadian sales month, the GM trucks fought back and beat the Ram by 784 sales.
