Our Take On The Pickup Sales Numbers

September 2018 saw the Ford F-Series streak of growth that had lasted since April 2017 broken, as America’s favourite pickup sold 8.76% fewer units than in September 2018.

It remains the clear leader in the segment, and the only pickup truck to have sold more than 60,000 units in any month of the year so far.

Ram Pickup’s numbers soared for September, with 10% more being sold across the USA than last September, providing parent company FCA with a welcome boost in sales to help mark its best September since 2000.

Year-to-date, the Ram remains behind the Chevrolet Silverado, with GM’s full-size pickup having increased sales 1.39% over the first nine months of 2017, despite facing headwinds through the third quarter.

Growth in demand for small and midsize pickups continued at the pace seen over the first three quarters in September. Both Nissan’s Frontier and Titan pickups posted sharp growth last month, but it is the mid-size Frontier selling in larger numbers than the full-size Titan.
