Despite decreased volume from every “import” nameplate, increased sales from every continuing Detroit pickup truck helped propel the Canadian truck segment to a 10% year-over-year improvement in January 2015. That’s 1845 extra sales for an auto industry which grew by 3303 units, year-over-year.
As always, the Ford F-Series was the best-selling truck in Canada in January 2015. The F-Series, like the Ram P/U and the GM full-size twins, reported record sales in calendar year 2014.
Ford is fully entrenched in a transition phase that’s only serving to bolster volume as remaining 2014s clear out and new 2015 F-150s are delivered to dealers. The F-Series led a full-size category which produced a 9.5% improvement to 19,272 units, 94.3% of the overall truck market.
Small/midsize trucks, buoyed by the addition of January’s second and third-best-selling models from GM – the Colorado and Canyon – was up 18.6% to 1168 units. The Toyota Tacoma accounted for 46% of all non-full-size truck sales in Canada in January 2015.
