Our Take On The Pickup Sales Numbers

Sales of the eleven pickup truck nameplates available in the USA increased by 7.89% year-on-year in March, with first quarter sales up 2.82% on Q1 2017.

Yet again the full-size Ford F-Series leads the charge, with last month representing the market-leader’s best March since the millennium. 42% of full size pickups sold in the states last month were F-Series, an increase of 2% of its share of the full size pickup market compared with a year ago.

General Motors’ pickup truck sales increased 19% year-on-year in March, despite a drop for the GMC Sierra of 7.5%. The Chevrolet-branded pair consisting the Colorado and Silverado saw growth of 51.9% and 21.1% year-on-year respectively.

Surging sales for the Toyota Tacoma, Nissan Frontier and Chevrolet Colorado are behind the strong sales of small / midsize pickup trucks so far this year. For Q1, sales of small and midsize pickups are up 26.68%.
