Top 11 Best-Selling Pickup Trucks In America – April 2016 YTD


2016 Ford F-Series Super Duty farm

U.S. sales of pickup trucks grew 12% to more than 232,000 units in April 2016, a rate of expansion that more than tripled the growth rate of the overall auto industry.

U.S. Vehicle Sales Rankings By Model – April 2016 YTD

Ford’s F-Series, the leader among full-size trucks, pickup trucks overall, and overall new vehicle lines, jumped 13% to 70,774 units, the second consecutive month above 70K. Although 2015 ended with GM’s full-size twins, the Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra, outselling the F-Series for the first time since 2009, April 2016 was the 58th month out of the last 80 in which the F-Series outsold the GM twins.

Another pair of GM twins, the Chevrolet Colorado and GMC Canyon, had a huge month with 13,388 sales. This was still well back of the midsize class-leading Toyota Tacoma, but the Colorado’s 48% gain pushed it ahead of Toyota’s full-size Tundra, while both the Colorado and Canyon achieved in April their highest monthly output since returning in late 2014. 

April was the new Canyon’s first month above 3000 units; the new Colorado’s first five-digit sales month.
