Top 11 Best-Selling Pickup Trucks In Canada – January 2016


2016 Ford F-150 Platinum rear

Canadian pickup truck sales jumped by more than a fifth to nearly 25,000 units in January 2016 as every continuing nameplate reported significant year-over-year sales increases. Only the Honda Ridgeline, which will depart its on-hiatus status in the next few months – sold less often this January than last, and its decline was hardly consequential in the overall Honda and overall pickup truck pictures.

Ford F-Series sales decreased in 2015 after breaking records in each of the three previous years, but F-Series sales were still strong enough last year to easily top the category. In January, Ford F-Series volume jumped 13%, a gain of 991 units. (Yes, 991 units, the F-Series increase, is greater than the total sales achieved by every truck save for the Ford’s three closest-rivals.) 

Canada Vehicle Sales Rankings By Model – January 2016

The F-Series and its full-size cohorts posted a 19% improvement to 22,888 January sales, equal to 93% of all pickup truck sales.

Midsize pickups, led by the surging Toyota Tacoma, rose 52% to 1772 units. 53% of the sub-segment’s sales were produced by the top-ranked Toyota.

General Motors Canada offers more pickup truck nameplates than any other automaker in Canada. The full-size and small/midsize twins at GM didn’t combine to generate quite as many sales as the second-ranked Ram P/U, but it was an exceptional month of improvement for GM. 

The Sierra and Silverado jumped 28%, a gain of 1328 sales.
