July sales of small/midsize pickup trucks grew 29% to 40,069 units in the United States.
Thanks to the addition of more than 3500 Honda Ridgeline sales (3518 in total) and the fifth-consecutive 9K+ sales month for the Chevrolet Colorado, small/midsize pickups accounted for 17% of the overall truck market, up from 14% a year ago.
Full-size trucks naturally remain the major volume and profit generators for the industry’s pickup truck sector. Despite a modest 1% Ford F-Series decline and a 4% drop from the Chevrolet Silverado, full-size truck volume rose 0.2% in July 2016 because of Ram and GMC Sierra improvements.
Combined, the GMC Sierra and better-selling Chevrolet Silverado outsold the Ford F-Series by 10,887 units in July, but the F-Series – which was outsold by the GM twins in 2015 for the first time since 2009 – leads the year-to-date standings by 4239 units.
Overall, U.S. pickup truck sales rose 4% in July 2016 and are up 6% over 2015’s pace through the first seven months of the year.
