Top 13 Best-Selling Pickup Trucks In America - August 2015 YTD

2016 Ford F-150 Limited white
Sales of pickup trucks in the United States jumped 8% in August 2015, a figure highlighted by the fact that the overall industry struggled to match August 2014's new vehicle sales volume. Pickup trucks were led by the Ford F-Series, which posted a rare 5% year-over-year gain. F-Series sales are down by half-a-percent so far this year.


U.S. Vehicle Sales Rankings By Model - August 2015 YTD


Ford's full-size truck line was, however, once again outsold by the full-size twins from General Motors. Chevrolet and GMC combined for 76,218 total Silverado and Sierra sales in August 2015, 4886 more than the F-Series managed. Through the first eight months of 2015, the GM twins lead the top-selling Ford F-Series by 34,178 units. Silverado/Sierra volume is up 14% in 2015.

In fact, all five of America's top-selling pickup truck nameplates posted August gains, including the fifth-ranked Toyota Tacoma, America's favourite small/midsize pickup truck. Sales of the Tacoma-led midsize category increased 31% to 29,416 units in August, a gain of 6961 units for market share in the truck arena of 12.6%. Year-to-date, the Tacoma, Colorado, Frontier, Canyon, and Ridgeline are up  49% to 241,213 units.

Full-size pickup trucks, on the other hand, owned 87.4% of the truck category's volume in August 2015 thanks to a 5.3%, 10,188-unit improvement compared with August 2014. Year-to-date, full-size truck sales are up 5.7% to 1,407,848 units, a 76,063 units.
