Remember 2008? It wasn’t that long ago, just six years. Things were beginning to look truly disastrous as banks collapsed, homes were lost, and jobs disappeared. Buyers stayed away from pickup trucks in droves. Industry-wide auto sales were down 18%, a loss of 2.9 million units. Pickup truck volume plunged by 723,809 units, a 27% drop.
Every single pickup truck nameplate except the new-to-market Suzuki Equator (which went on sale in December 2013) posted decreased sales. The top sellers from Ford, Chevrolet, Dodge, and GMC slid 25%, 25%, 31%, and 19%, respectively.
