After Ford suffered a fire at the automaker’s Michigan headquarters Monday, we did not receive Ford F-Series sales figures until Wednesday, a day later than other automakers reported.

The outcome? F-Series sales declined sharply, but it was still the best-selling pickup truck line in Canada.

Canada Vehicle Sales Rankings By Model – October 2016 YTD

In September, the F-Series, Canada’s best-selling line of vehicles, set an all-time monthly sales record, outselling its three top rivals combined. Through the first three-quarters of 2016, four out of every ten pickup trucks sold in Canada were F-150s or F-Series Super Dutys. The level of domination was not nearly so obvious in October. The F-Series’ full-size market share fell to 37% from 48% a month earlier.

Canadian sales of small/midsize pickups took an 8% dive in October 2016, a slowdown caused by the top-selling Toyota Tacoma and slowest-selling Nissan Frontier.

Tacoma sales slid 39% in October 2016, one year after rising 86% from 929 units in October 2014. The Tacoma maintained its grip on the top spot, 39 sales ahead of the GM midsize twins: Colorado and Canyon. Honda reported 471 Ridgeline sales, a massive boost for the segment – the Ridgeline wasn’t on sale last year – but the second consecutive month in which Honda Canada delivered fewer Ridgelines. 

Meanwhile, Ram full-size truck sales slid 16%, surrendering its position as Canada’s second-best-selling vehicle to the Honda Civic. GM Canada’s full-size twins fell 24%.
