Most of America’s favourite trucks sold at a greater clip in June 2011 than in June 2010. The top seller, Ford’s F-Series, boosted its sales tally by 3116 trucks. Chevrolet Silverado sales rose 5.1%. The Dodge Ram was up 34.7%. The Silverado’s twin, GMC’s Sierra, posted an 8.1% jump. Toyota’s two truck platforms couldn’t match last year’s volume.
If you’re a regular reader of GoodCarBadCar.net’s Best-Selling Trucks post, you’ll notice significant changes in the format this month. Not only is this not a Top 5, it’s also in table form. While that’s not as attractive as the pie chart, it allows for more information. For example, America’s four best-selling trucks are responsible for at least one-fifth of their respective brand’s total sales volume. You can see precise results for that particular piece of info for every truck in the Top Ten in the second column from the left.
Year-to-date figures are also important. Halfway through 2011, Ford has sold 264,079 F-Series pickups. General Motors sold 250,383 Silverados and Sierras in the first six months of this year… plus 8718 Avalanches, still not enough to match the F-150 and its cohorts.
