Every one of Canada’s nine best-selling pickup truck nameplates sold more often in September 2015 than in September 2014, a collective increase totalling 3969 extra sales, year-over-year.
From the Ford F-Series’ modest 1% uptick to the Toyota Tundra’s 34% improvement and the Ram P/U’s 31%, 2015-unit increase, truck sales were booming in Canada in September 2015. It was a strong month for the overall auto industry, and 2015 was already a strong year for truck sales. But September took it to another level in the pickup sphere.
General Motors Canada sold 10,407 total pickup trucks in September 2015, a 15% improvement compared with the same period one year ago. That includes 773 copies of the automakers’ midsize twins – Colorado and Canyon – which weren’t on sale at this stage of 2014.
Year-to-date, the small/midsize sector is up 54% to 18,339 units. That’s 6.8% of the overall truck market, up from 4.7% through the first three quarters of 2014. The GM twins own 41.2% of the non-full-size truck market in Canada, behind the Toyota Tacoma’s 42.9% figure but well ahead of the Nissan Frontier’s 14.6% result.

GM’s full-size share, however, is far lower in Canada than it is in the United States. Although Sierra and Silverado sales are rising quickly, they combine to outsell all other full-size trucks in the U.S. with 37.7% of the market, but own a more modest 30.4% of Canada’s full-size market.
