November 2012 Pickup Truck Sales In America


2014 Chevrolet Silverado crew cab red
2014 GMC Sierra interior

15 pickup truck nameplates collected 154,369 U.S. buyers in November 2012. 36% of those sales occurred in Ford showrooms. Sales of Ford’s F-Series jumped 18% last month. Year-to-date, the F-Series’ growth of 12% is slightly below the overall industry’s 14% gains, but it’s hugely impressive nonetheless.

General Motors collected a total of 45,991 pickup truck sales in November 2012. That’s 25% of the company’s total U.S. volume. GM has improved incentives of late, but even with sufficient inventory, sales have been in decline. The trucks are old; this isn’t surprising. But now that GM has shown the 2014 Chevrolet Silverado and the 2014 GMC Sierra, it isn’t going to get any easier to convince customers to buy the aging GMT900 truck twins, not if they can wait a few months for the much improved 2014s.
18% of the new pickup trucks registered in America last month were sold by import brands. Sales of the Honda Ridgeline, Toyota Tundra, and fifth-ranked Toyota Tacoma are all growing at an above-average clip this year.
