124,474 pickup trucks were sold in America in January 2012. 83% were domestics in the classic sense. Four out of every five were full-size in the classic sense.
By January’s standards, the efforts of Japanese automakers to crack America’s full-size truck market was not successful. Only 5.5% of all trucks sold in January were Nissan Titans or Toyota Tundras.
The Ford F-Series was the best-selling truck in America in January, as usual. The top five were ranked earlier this month on GoodCarBadCar.
After the jump, it’s worth taking a look at the minivan segment, a category which grew just 1.1% despite the addition of an extra player, the Nissan Quest. The minivan category’s 1% growth in the came during a time in which the overall new vehicle market was up 11%. Keep that in mind when glancing at the sales figures for each of the eight vans listed or when, with a single click, enlarging either of the charts. There was not a single minivan in January’s list of the 30 best-selling vehicles in America.
