As 2017 automotive sales relate to pickup trucks, the scenario so far has not been as dire as some were predicting. In fact, all the full-size pickup players — except for the Toyota Tundra — are doing quite well when compared to 2016, which was the best sales year in automotive history. The mid-size pickup segment continues to grow as well.
As you might expect, February did not see much change. The Toyota Tacoma remained the top-selling mid-size pickup, the Ford F-Series outsold all other vehicles and GM sold more pickups than any other manufacturer.
Some of the auto experts who were predicting a sluggish 2017 just a few months ago are starting to talk about a possible record-breaking total for 2017. It will be several months before we can tell whether that might happen. In the meantime, we know that as winter thaws, more people will be heading to dealer lots — especially when there are so many incentives on full-size pickups.
