As the U.S. auto industry struggled in January 2014 to fend off winter’s force, the economic climate that had previously failed to slow auto sales in 2013, and the post-Christmas spending malaise, pickup truck sales fell by more than 6000 units compared with January 2013, a 4.5% drop.
With its best-selling F-Series lineup, Ford owned 34% of America’s truck market in January 2014. The F-Series outsold GM’s also-declining Silverado/Sierra twins by 6492 units.
Ram’s pickup range, along with the Toyota Tundra and Nissan Frontier, were the bright spots in a (likely temporarily) declining category. Tundra sales rose 13%, Ram sales were up 22%, and Frontier sales shot up 88%.
In the small/midsize category (which was down 4.8% to 15,951 units, just 11.7% of the overall truck segment) the Frontier’s market share climbed from 15.7% in January 2013 to 30.9% in January 2014.
