Truck sales are struggling to match last year’s sales numbers. Sales numbers for both the month of October and YTD show that the segment is behind 2018’s sales numbers.
When you look at the month of October alone, you’ll see that the segment is down by about 600 units. When you look at the YTD numbers, you’ll notice that the segment sits about 4,400 units behind the previous year’s numbers.
Leading the pack in terms of overall sales volume is the Ford F-Series pickup truck. The truck has managed to squeak out a sales increase for the month of October and so far this year. The Ram Pickup is close behind and closing the gap it’s up by over 14 percent so far this year.
It’ll be interesting to see where pickup truck sales numbers end up at the end of the year. We’d expect them to stay slightly behind last year’s sales numbers.
Data will trickle in throughout the day with the numbers being finalized by EOD. GCBC is also happy to announce that we will be adding quarterly sales reports and comparisons in addition to monthly sales comparisons beginning this quarter. We will also be adding monthly sales tables and charts to the mix as well.
Note: FCA US LLC will end its practice of reporting U.S. and Canada sales on a monthly basis following June results. FCA US and FCA Canada will report monthly sales for May and June. The first quarterly report will occur on October 1, 2019, covering the months of July, August, and September.
