Pickup truck sales in Canada didn’t look amazing in 2019. They were actually down slightly for the year as a whole. However, the month of December, which was a rough month for the industry overall was a good one for truck sales.
In December, there were about 1,700 more sales than in December of 2018. When you look at truck sales for the entire year of 2019, you’ll see that the segment was down by about 1,600 sales. So, while there was a drop in truck sales from 2018, it wasn’t too dramatic.
The Ford F-Series led the way in terms of overall sales for the year. However, Ram’s Pickup is making a lot of ground on Ford. In December, Ram actually outsold Ford. Ram also saw a hearty boost in sales for 2019. Ford, GMC, and Chevy all saw sales drop in 2019.
We expect similar sales results in the first few months of 2020. Ram should continue to gain ground and the segment stalwarts will likely struggle to compete. Ford, GMC, and Chevrolet all have relatively new designs, but Ram’s new design seems to have captured truck-buyers’ attention the most.
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.
