Sales of the GM twins (8139 between the pair) rose 9%, however, and Ram P/U sales jumped 15% to power the category forward even with small losses from the Toyota Tundra and the Nissan Titan’s 52% drop.
The scenery in the small and midsize pickup segment is only beginning to change, as new Chevrolet Colorados and GMC Canyons began arriving in showrooms late last month. Only 55 were sold, but that number will rise rapidly in the near future.
But can they challenge the Toyota Tacoma for top dog status in the category? For now, October 2014 small/midsize pickup volume slid 2.9%, a decline caused in large part by the Honda Ridgeline’s 56% plunge.
Overall, pickup trucks were up 2.1% to 26,696 units, or 17.2% of the market as a whole. Only 5.1% of the trucks sold weren’t full-size pickups. Through ten months, 38% of the new pickups sold in Canada in 2014 have been Ford F-Series derivatives. Total truck sales are up 3% this year, a gain of 8163 units.
