Best-Selling Pickup Trucks In America For First Half of 2018


Image
After six months of sales, the Ford F-Series has a commanding lead over the competition and has a decent chance of topping the one million mark in sales. If memory serves, this would be the first time ever. When I was Ford Dealer Council Chairman in 2000, we went over 900,000 for the first time.

Through June, year-to-date, only Ram, Titan, and Ridgeline are down in the first six months as compared to the first six months of 2017.

First-half Ford F-Series sales totaled 451,138 pickups, a 4.9 percent increase; June F-Series sales totaled 79,204 trucks, marking the pickupís 14th consecutive month of year-over-year gains. Credit: Ford

Well adding Colorado's and Canyon's to the truck numbers isn't apples to apples. The F-150 still sold more than the Silverado/Sierra combo. I believe in 2019 Ford will roll out the new Ranger so we'll see if that outsells the Colorado/Canyon combo.

My comment was about truck sales in general, not different sizes, shapes, colors, etc. The Ranger might outsell the GM twins, but if so, the F-150 sales will surely take a hit doing it, just as the Silverado and Sierra probably have with the Colorado and Canyon.

So GM continues to sell more trucks than Ford. I guess it depends on what size and dealer name you want. Also, Jerry, my wife and I just bought a new Mercedes GLE350 from Frank at Mercedes Benz of Sugarland. What a great experience. Thanks for telling us about them.
