Trends continue to point toward a strong year-end sales total, with the biggest winners being domestic truck makers that have struggled in years past. November 2013 will go into the records books as a strong month for just about every manufacturer that offers a pickup in the U.S. The only exception is the sluggish-selling Nissan Titan, which is in the process of a significant redesign.
The Ford F-Series continued its sales domination with 65,501 sales in a month with fewer selling days than last year. Both the Chevrolet and GMC half-tons are doing well, although certain models have a slightly higher "days on lots" total. The Silverado 1500 crew cab, for example, is averaging 63 days. Other big news for the month includes the slow and steady push the Honda Ridgeline has made; it will likely end the year in the top eight.
