America’s pickup truck market grew 3% in May 2014 and 4% in the first five months of 2014. May’s improvement comes despite the loss of more than 3000 units from the top-selling truck lineup, Ford’s F-Series.
GM’s twins generated 64,974 sales. Ram sales shot up 17%. Toyota Tundra sales increased while Tacoma sales decreased. Overall, the six core full-size truck lines were up to 183,182 units, a 5% year-over-year increase. They accounted for 89.3% of the overall truck market, up from 87.2% a year ago.
GM’s market share in the full-size category grew to 34.5% from 34.1% in May 2013 as Ram’s share grew to 20.3% and Toyota’s to 6.2%.
The F-Series will be replaced later this year with an aluminum-intensive product. Expect fluctuations in the lead-up to that replacement.
