2017 GMC Sierra 2500 All Terrain X

Updated with Ford F-Series figures at 10:56 AM AT on 11.02.2016

We won’t have a complete U.S. October 2016 pickup truck sales picture until later this week when Ford releases F-Series sales data – Ford HQ was damaged in a fire, delaying the automaker’s North American sales reports.

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

But we do know that the Ram Pickup’s ascent continued in October after the Ram truck range outsold the Chevrolet Silverado in September. Powered by strong, targeted incentives, Ram sales jumped 7% in October 2016.

In the midsize category, the big story revolved around the big seller. The Toyota Tacoma, long the leader of the class, outsold the GMC Sierra, America’s fourth-best-selling pickup in most months, by 825 units. Together, the Sierra’s 19% drop and the Tacoma’s 4% rise combined to rearrange the usual order.

Midsize pickup truck sales jumped 32% to 38,973 units in October 2016. Year-to-date, they’re up by a quarter.

Now, with Ford figures, we know that U.S. pickup truck sales rose 4% last month even as U.S. auto sales slid 6% in October 2016. Though Ford brand sales tumbled 12%, F-Series sales did not decline. The Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra, combined, trailed the F-Series by 724 units in October; by 6384 units YTD. 2015 was the first year since 2009 that the full-size GM twins outsold the F-Series.
