Top 11 Best-Selling Pickup Trucks In Canada In 2016
Canada Vehicle Sales Rankings By Model – 2016 Year End

With nearly 10,000 sales in December – nearly double the total put up by GM’s full-size tandem – the Ford F-Series pushed its year end total to an all-time annual record of 145,409 units, 22% ahead of last year’s performance and 15% ahead of the previous annual record set two years ago. 

The F-Series earned 44% of all full-size truck sales in December; 42% in the 2016 calendar year as all three of its top rivals posted declining volume.

Midsize pickup trucks are a growing force, but the quintet remains a relatively low-volume presence in Canada. Only 8.5% of all pickups sold in Canada in 2016 were midsize trucks. The same group owns 17% of the American pickup market.
