Top 13 Best-Selling Pickup Trucks In Canada - August 2013 YTD

Expecting constant year-over-year improvements from Canada's best-selling pickup trucks is a bit like asking RenĂ©e Fleming to reach higher notes this September than she did last September, higher notes again in October than she did in October 2012, and then to repeat these steps month after month, year after year. 

Admittedly, Ford Canada didn't report stagnant F-Series volume in August 2013. F-Series volume slid 8%, a meaningful 950-unit decline. However, Ford ripped off a record-setting pace in 2012 and is on pace to crush that record this year. Do the 1% and 8% summer declines mean anything? 


Of course they do. Ford Canada isn't selling quite as many trucks this summer as they did last year. But the F-Series is still Canada's best-selling truck, still Canada's best-selling vehicle overall, and the overarching trend speaks more about improvement than it does about decline.

Ram's 24% increase in August was not enough to overcome the F-Series's drop, not since the F-Series' drop was paired with declines from the Chevrolet Silverado and seven other pickups. Canada's pickup market slid 1% in August 2013, a 285-unit drop. 

(UPDATE: Ford released new August numbers for the F-Series in October, changing the overall results in this post. See table below for updated and increased F-Series numbers.)

Remember, the cancelled and/or defunct Avalanche, Escalade EXT, Colorado, Canyon, and Ford Ranger contributed 680 sales in August 2012 but only 177 in August 2013. Removing those trucks from the equation, Canada's truck market grew 0.8% in August.
