Our Take On The Pickup Sales Numbers

Pickup Trucks grew 5.8% year-on-year for 2017’s final month, despite a bleak outlook for the auto market heading into December 2017.

With all pickup manufacturers having reported their sales to close out 2017, we now see that the year was also a good one for pickups. Pickup sales grew 4.8% across the entire year when compared with 2016’s totals.

The Ford F-Series fell just short of absorbing one third of the market for the year – it ended the year with a still impressive 31.8% market share.

The Chevrolet Silverado surged to 24.7% year-on-year growth for the month, meaning it finished up 2017 just under 2% ahead of its total for 2016. Its relation the GMC Sierra also had a strong final month of the year, closing out December with 13.5% year-on-year sales growth.

Combined, sales of the Silverado and Sierra are still eclipsed by the F-Series for the year, at 803,807 to the Ford’s 896,764.

Both Full Size and Small / Midsize pickups went green for the month of December 2017, but for the year a 6% lead over 2016 for Full Size pickups outweighed the 1.68% drop in Small / Midsize in the segment’s final total for 2017.
