Our Take On The Pickup Sales Numbers

A segment-wide 8% increase year-on-year in pickup sales is led by the Ford F-Series – which doubles the rate of growth across the sector.

The Toyota Tundra moves up a further place in October’s standings, overtaking the Chevrolet Colorado thanks to a 5.1% year-on-year increase for the Toyota and a 5.6% drop for the Colorado.

Much of the growth across the segment is fueled by September’s momentum as consumers replace pickups that were damaged in the floods earlier in the year.

The GMC Sierra is the standout in the top-5 in terms of growth, with sales increaing by more than 1/4 on its figures for the same month last year. The Nissan Titan, further down the chart, also posts double-figure-percentage growth.

The Honda Ridgeline posts a fourth consecutive month of falling sales, with sales down almost 20% on last October.
