Order To Challenge Toyota’s Tacoma

Every time an analyst makes a remark alluding to the inability of any non-Detroit full-size pickup truck to sell, the Toyota Tacoma is offended. Routinely America’s fifth-best-selling truck, victor over ten other trucks, and July’s fourth-best-selling truck, the Tacoma is actually a fairly popular vehicle.

More Tacomas left Toyota showrooms in September 2012 than the original Prius. The Tacoma outsold the whole Scion division. Toyota’s Highlander sold less often; Toyota’s RAV4 barely sold more often. Oh, and the Tundra? Obviously Toyota’s big truck is not as popular as its small truck.

Indeed, Toyota’s best-selling truck is a commonly seen pickup, one which will likely sell even better with the Ford Ranger gone.

That said, Ford sold more F-Series pickups in each week of September than Toyota sold in the whole month. America’s most popular vehicle line also outsold the Chevy Silverado and GMC Sierra, combined, with 5016 units to spare.

Historical monthly and yearly sales figures for all five of these trucks and every other pickup on sale can be accessed free of charge, all day long, through the first dropdown menu at GCBC’s Sales Stats home. Unless you’re viewing the mobile version of this site, you can also make use of that dropdown menu at the top right of this page. GoodCarBadCar published longer lists of best-selling cars and SUVs earlier. Below you’ll find America’s 5 best-selling trucks from September 2012.
