A Familiar Place: During April, 8691 Canadian Truck Buyers
Found Themselves In An Interior Like This One
Only 38 of the 844 Toyota Tacoma pickups sold in Canada in April 2012 were rear-wheel-drive trucks. Overall Tacoma sales are up 9% this year, but it certainly has nothing to do with the rear-wheel-drive version, sales of which fell 47% through the first four months of 2012. 4×4 Tacoma sales are up 14% this year.
For every Tacoma sold in Canada in April – 4×4 or not – 10 Ford F-Series trucks found new owners. F-Series sales were down 7% in a market which fell a little more than 1%. Year-to-date, F-Series sales are up 7% in a market which has climbed 5%. Together with the Ram P/U and GM’s twins, America’s four leading trucks accounted for 14.3% of all new vehicle sales in Canada in April 2012.
Speaking of the GM twins, GMC’s Sierra and Chevy’s Silverado combined for 7595 sales last month, more than 1000 below the F-Series’ grand total but nearly 1400 greater than the Ram’s tally. Back in February, the GM twins only beat the Ram by 88 units.
