Top 11 Best-Selling Pickup Trucks In America – January 2017


2017 Chevrolet Silverado red

Pickup truck sales jumped 4% in the United States in January 2017, a positive start to a year that hasn’t started nearly so positively for many automakers. Lexus and Acura, for instance, suffered their lowest-volume months since January 2012. 

U.S. Vehicle Sales Rankings By Model – January 2017

But trucks, and full-size trucks in particular, generated more American sales activity in January 2017 than in January 2016. Thank the Ford F-Series, America’s best-selling vehicle line, most of all. F-Series sales jumped 13% while sales of its prime competitor, the Chevrolet Silverado, slid 6%. 

Midsize trucks, meanwhile, grew only 2.5% after surging throughout 2016. The Toyota Tacoma and Nissan Frontier, the latter most especially, couldn’t match January 2016’s pace. The gains produced by GM’s midsize twins and the Honda Ridgeline only barely counteracted the Tacoma/Frontier losses. 

Midsize pickup truck market share slid to 15.5% in January 2017 from 15.7% in January 2016 and 16.7% in the 2016 calendar year.
