In November 2015, for the first time since March of this year, Ford’s full-size F-Series truck lineup outsold the combined efforts of GM’s full-size twins, the Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra.
The F-Series posted a 10% year-over-year U.S. sales improvement in November 2015, a gain of 6143 sales compared with November 2013. Because of a sharp 27% drop in Sierra sales, the GM twins were 3664 sales abaft. Year-to-date, the second-ranked Silverado and fourth-ranked Sierra are 39,110 sales ahead of the Ford. The F-Series outsold the GM twins in each of the last five years.
None of the four top-selling full-size trucks are likely to suffer a great deal of lost sales to the second-generation Nissan Titan, launched first in medium-duty XD form. But don’t base your ideas of what Nissan can achieve with the new Titan on November’s paltry performance. Only 719 Titans were sold last month, but there was a time, albeit a decade ago, when Nissan was selling more than 7000 Titans per month.

The Toyota Tacoma-controlled small/midsize pickup truck category recorded a 17% year-over-year improvement in November 2015, dragging the sub-category’s market share up from 11.9% in November 2014 to 13.6% in November 2015. The Tacoma earned 50% market share with 13,465 of 27,033 November sales, outselling the Chevrolet Colorado and GMC Canyon – combined – by 2136 units.
