Canadian sales of pickup trucks slid 7% in December 2015, the second consecutive month of decline for what was an increasingly popular new vehicle category.
2015 was a very healthy year for pickups, particularly in 2015’s first ten months. Calendar year sales rose 5% despite a 6% decline reported by the top-selling Ford F-Series, sales of which fell to a three-year low.
Small/midsize pickup trucks in December posted a collective 56% year-over-year increase, however, strengthened not only by two GM pickup trucks which were only just becoming available at this time a year ago but also by the launch of a revamped Toyota Tacoma.
Sales of the Tacoma jumped 57% to 959 units, equal to half of all small/midsize pickup truck sales in Canada in December.
