Our Take On The Pickup Sales Numbers

It’s a little hard to discuss truck sales numbers in America without Ford and GM sales data, which are both now reported quarterly. However, without them, overall truck sales look strong. Around 4,000 more trucks sold in January than did last year.

Of the data we do have, Ram leads the way in terms of sales volume and sales percentage increase. It saw strong sales over last year’s numbers.

Most other models didn’t experience too dramatic a change when compared with last year, except for the Nissan Titan. It saw a 25.18 percent drop for the month of January.

When Ford and GM’s data comes out in April, we’ll get a true full picture of truck sales.
