Our Take On The Pickup Sales Numbers

It’s tough to get a true look at pickup truck sales in America right now because Ford and GM are reporting sales numbers quarterly.

Excluding those two companies from the data shown below, the segment leaders saw pretty notable sales increases in February 2019 over this time last year.

Both the Ram Pickup and the Toyota Tacoma saw double digit increases for the month. Those positive sales increases were seen in the YTD numbers as well, though not quite as dramatic.

The big sales decreases in the truck segment came from Nissan. Both the Frontier and the Titan saw sales declines well into the double digits when compared to this time last year.

It will be interesting to see where Ford and GM’s pickup trucks fall come the end of the first quarter of 2019.
