Top 11 Best-Selling Pickup Trucks In America - August 2016 YTD

2017 Honda Ridgeline
Despite a significant 5.6% drop in full-size pickup truck sales, the U.S. auto industry reported a 0.2% overall uptick in total pickup truck sales in August 2016. That narrow gain of 477 additional sales compared with August 2015 was drawn entirely from a 39% gain amongst midsize pickup trucks.

That 39% gain, an 11,536-unit increase, was powered by four of five competing nameplates. (The class-leading Toyota Tacoma slid 5%.) Honda sold 3437 copies of its new Ridgeline, an increase of 3433 sales compared with August 2015. Chevrolet and GMC's midsize twins combined for 12,605 sales. Nissan Frontier sales nearly tripled to 9537 units, a gain of 5892 sales.

Midsize pickup trucks remain small players overall. 82% of the pickups sold in the United States in August, and 83% through the first eight months of 2016, were full-size trucks. 


Though August was a slower month for the Ford F-Series, America's best-selling line of new vehicles, year-to-date sales of the F-Series are up 7% to 527,847 units, 1.8 times the total achieved by all midsize pickups. 


In August, GM's full-size truck twins outsold the F-Series by 2940 units. Year-to-date, the F-Series leads the GM twins by 1299 sales. GM sold 620,469 pickup trucks in total in 2016's first eight months, 92,622 more than Ford managed without midsize helpers.
