Pickup truck sales for the month of December and for the entire year of 2019 proved to be one of the more interesting areas of the market. Industry stalwarts like the Ford F-Series and the Chevrolet Silverado saw declines for both the month and the year.
However, the Ram Pickup managed to have a heck of a year, seeing increases of over 18 percent. It was down for the month, though. We expect this to continue in 2020.
Other trucks that saw strong sales for the year include the Honda Ridgeline and the GMC Sierra. There are some new trucks that came out in 2019 that also seem to be doing decent, including the Ford Ranger and the Jeep Gladiator. It will be interesting to see how these models fare in 2020.
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.
