Best-Selling Pickup Trucks: November 2017

2017-Super-Duty-F-350A_F-150 - Copy

Pickup truck sales continue to pull the entire auto industry along with higher sales numbers than any other class. The Ford F-Series and Chevrolet Colorado continue to be the 2017 standout players, while other major players — the Toyota Tacoma, Chevrolet Silverado and Ram pickups — are flat, staying just a nose ahead of 2016 sales numbers. The Colorado continues to be strong in the mid-size class and pickup market, once again outselling the Toyota Tundra for the month.

We're hearing both Toyota and Ram are in the midst of shifting, moving and/or upgrading production facilities during the next few years so they can increase production and build the pickups that meet consumer demand. With all-new half tons in the works, Ram and Toyota stand to benefit if they can predict upcoming market shifts. We'll have to wait and see, but it looks like the competition could get even tighter in 2018.

Nissan had a strong month, with the full-size Titans (Nissan combines sales numbers for the half-ton Titan and Titan XD) selling more than the mid-size Frontier for the month — that's the first time we can remember that happening. The full-size Nissans continue to pick up momentum.

Editor's note: This post was updated Dec. 4, 2017, to include sales numbers for Nissan, which were unavailable Dec. 1.

GM, the sales leader with the most choice offered to customers.
Great job.

Yeah baby ford beat the GARBAGE MOTORS TWINS keep it up Ford your the best.

I guess it makes sense now why I'm seeing a lot of new Super Duties on the road.

All the GARBAGE MOTORS FAN GIRLYS Are gonna start whining that GOVERNMENT MOTORS beat FORD but FORD beat them. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAH BUT WHAT COUNTS IS THE CHART IT SAYS IT ALL.

Until Ford can publish the actual break down the F-150 vs Superduty sales, the Silverado is the best selling brand name truck in America. Period.

Ford, Chebby, Ram Ford, Chebby, Ram Ford, Chebby, Ram
Rinse, spin repeat.....blah blah blah

Wait... what? “Due to mechanical failure, Nissan is unable to supply...” Is that a joke? What exactly was mechanical that failed? The fax machine or keypunch reader...??

@Chingon - Can you explain how you got to the number that GM sold less than Ford? Are you referring to monthly sales numbers or are you referring to the year to date?

Either way i'm not getting the same numbers, please show me how this is wrong?

Using basic math looking at year to date:

Ford = 807,379
GM = 841,704

GM sold more pickup truck product than ford by 34,325 units.

Using basic math looking at last months sales numbers:

Ford = 72,769
GM = 76,433

GM sold more pickup truck product than ford by 3,664 units.

GM is represented by four brands in this list.

Looks like the Super Duty is selling well around here. I see a lot of the new 2018 Duramax trucks too. I live where everyone drives a truck and the F150 is very popular . There are a few more GM trucks than ford here but that also has to do with the crummy ford dealership we have.

Man, Ram dealers are basically giving away pickups and they only sold 36,714 last month? That is pretty sad.

FORD JUNK CAN'T SEEM TO OUTSELL THE GREAT GM TRUCKS..
THINK I SHOULD SWITCH BRANDS, HATE BEING # 2. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

FORD #1

January to November sales.
F-series 807,379
GM-series 729,695

Mustang, best selling Musclecar of all time.
November sales.
Mustang 6,720
Camaro 4,737

Until Ford can publish the actual break down the F-150 vs Superduty sales, the Silverado is the best selling brand name truck in America. Period.

Why don’t you cry for the same break down of the Silverado 1500 vs HD Silverado 2500/3500?

My above post was directed to biased poster GMSRGREAT

All in all, I see Ford in the green, and GM products in red other than the Colorado. Anyone can swing the numbers in their favor. Ford sells more half ton+ with combined GM half ton +, so Ford wins half ton +. You can also say Gm wins when combining everything against Ford. But one can argue why count trucks where Ford has no offering? makes sense to me. From a non brand loyalty person, this has Ford written all over it for top honors. I like what Ram is doing as well.

Math is a difficult subject to some, I guess that's why we have a huge pool of people that do menial bottom feeder jobs

There is only one full size truck offered by Chevy, the Silverado. It is the #1 selling brand name model truck, Ford will not be challenging that, hence they combine total sales and hide under the F-series marketing.

Great job GM you have outsold Ford 3 years in a row. Must really suck being a Ford clown.

Now I can see why Nissan has been desperately looking for markets outside NA for the Titan. To have TBA as your figures for sales, means something is very wrong. I would suspect the Frontier and Titan have problems

So, based on these totals, it's beginning to be pretty clear:

If your dealers offer a full size and a mid-size pickup, the mid-sizer will take some sales from the full-size column.

Back during the years that Nissan and Toyota were the design leaders in mid size trucks, Ford and GM had nothing to really compete with.

The old Rangers and the old Colorado/Canyon/Isuzu trucks just weren't a factor.

Ford and GM are still fighting that war with old products---the T6 Ranger will be ancient by the time it gets here late next year, and the GM mid sizers are going to be old hat too, unless they do something with drive-train choices.

Nissan has a new Frontier coming and Toyota will be feeling a lot of hurt if they don't do something about the Tacoma.

You have made a lot of bone headed comments on here under your various usernames, but this is near the top. Ford has a truck called F-150. They have Trucks from F-250 Thru F-450 that they refer to as SuperDuty. GM Has a truck they call Silverado 1500. They have a line of trucks they call Silverado HD. These are their 2500 thru 3500. The HD stands for what they call HeavyDuty. Sour grapes that Ford marketing did a better job? People associate SuperDuty to Ford and not even GM lover's like yourself associate HeavyDuty to GM trucks........ Keep spinning it dude. You'll be the first guy to include midsize trucks and combine GMC and Chevy to claim a victory, but Ford can't even claim it's whole line of fullsize trucks? LOL. You're a tool kid.

You are delusional. The Sierra comes in 1500,2500HD,3500HD
The Silverado also 1500,2500HD and 3500HD.

Nothing more fun then to watch Ford clowns cry and spin names to try and claim the most selling. Once again GM great job on out selling Ford 3 years and running *cought with older trucks to boot* HAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!!!!!!

Chevy Silverado, #1 selling full size truck.
Ford F-150 #2 selling full size truck.
RAM #3 selling full size truck.
Ford Superduty possibly #4 spot, but who knows, Ford knows but they are not saying.

Ford fans, here is your challenge. Find that facts to prove the above statement incorrect. Good luck!

I GMSRGREAT am a complete and utter idiot.


Everybody, here's your challenge. Prove the above statement incorrect. I didn't think so!!!

When you add Tundra sales to Silverado sales and Sierra sales, it is more than Ford. The #1 selling full size truck brand is Chevy + GMC + Toyota!!! BAM!! Go cry in those facts!!

If Ford only counts F-150 sales, GM wins. Any questions?

Ford sells the most half ton trucks. Ford sells the most 3/4 ton trucks. Ford sells the most 1 ton trucks. When you add Chevy 1/2 ton, 3/4 ton and 1 ton, it's more than Ford's 1/2 ton F-150. Prove me wrong!!

The new GM full size truck will go 122mph in reverse. Here's your challenge: Find facts to prove that statement incorrect.
Man I'm on a roll here...

Hahaha! Got the Ford girls scrambling now. When they start posting using my name , you know they have nothing to respond to my Challenge.

Here is something else for you Ford losers to ponder:

GM builds trucks, Ford builds trucks, GM sells more trucks. HAHAHA! Have a great weekend.

Hahahahahaja....Uber twerps should compare apples to apples and the GM stuff is garbage, hahahaha get a life.

@GMs,

You need a life, it’s just a truck. I bet GM tucks you in at night with their finger in your pie hole, you’re a joke bro.

Hahahaha

Nobody gives a crap with you guys say dude, no really.

"Chevy Silverado, #1 selling full size truck.
Ford F-150 #2 selling full size truck."

The Chevy Silverado lineup includes 1500, 2500 and 3500 am i right or wrong? It should outsell the Ford F-150.

The statement should be:

Ford F-Series #1 selling full size truck.
Chevy Silverado #2 selling full size truck.

Ford F-Series 807,379
Chevrolet Silverado 518,188

btw im not a Ford fan. Just notice the discrepancy on your statement. I could be wrong.


Oh those GM supporters..., or supporter with a lot of character names..., base ten theory arithmetic is not your strong point..., insulting is your strong point..., oh well...,

"Ford and GM are still fighting that war with old products---the T6 Ranger will be ancient by the time it gets here late next year, and the GM mid sizers are going to be old hat too, unless they do something with drive-train choices."

Ranger is brand new to the US and that model will be brand new. Globally. How it sells in the US is another question.

@Robert Ryan

Please cite specifics. By all indications this T6 is a truck that has been in production elsewhere since 2011. The global base 2.5 engine has been in the Mazda/Ford stable for about 15 years.

The current crop of Ford V6 DOHC engines are probably too wide to fit in the Ranger, so a small diesel is rumored, and a turbo 4 cylinder gas engine might be the upgrade, but none of these are "all new" or brand new.

Hardly brand new.

Not brand new but class leading and Ford will further imprive upon this. Don't be such a downer.

@Tom

I can understand why you're confused.

Ford fans for at least 50 years have become accustomed to Dearborn executives pushing old-hat technology on the buyers. It's too long a list to review for you here. The Ranger is a case in point. The Taurus too.

Every indication points to Ford making a big marketing splash for the Ranger, despite have ignored the mid size market in the US for the better part of 15 years.

Papajim, You are a smart guy. But whenever you talk Ford something comes over you and you go full ret@rd. Never go full ret@rd.

Toyota Tacoma takes the sales crown for yet another year in its class!

Colorado has failed yet another year!

@Papajim
Ranger will be brand new for the US Market and it will be a Brand new for the Global Market in 2029

@Papajim
New redesigned Chassis Globally, very new for the US. Engines will also be new. Ecoboost variants in US models. You can put the 2.7 /3.5 Ecoboost engine into the current one.
" global base 2.5 ( Diesel) " 2.5 engine appeared in Europe, 3.2 everywhere else. All will be replaced by the 3 Lion

I meant 2019.

You guys cutting down Ford.
IF the Ford Trucks are soooo bad WHY are they always the #1 in sales?
Why are they selling?
Is it low price? style? high pressure sales? advertising? engine choice?

Me? I feel good I made the right choice with a new F-150 , it makes me feel secure that the F-150 is the #1 in sales.
I figure the majority of the new truck buyers aren't stupid.

it makes me feel secure that the F-150 is the #1 in sales

@Tom 3

get medical advice. ASAP

@Robert Ryan

Ford in no way will make a diesel of any kind its main engine choice in the upcoming Ranger. Zero probability of that in the US. Take rate for diesels in competing models (Colorado) is dismal in the US.

EPA hassles are another reason. Higher production cost is another.

The 2.5 Mazda-LE derived gas engine is probably going to be the base motor. I seriously doubt that an Ecoboost of any sort will be the base engine. Again, the production cost is too high.

Ford is in a box because they know by now that any line of mid-size trucks that does not have a base price MSRP in the $20-30K range is a non starter. Honda proved that.

Ford is up against a very popular Tacoma truck that is still the segment king. To carve away any Tacoma loyalists will require a Frontier-style price tag.

Good luck!

Once again FORD is the #1 selling brand.
The #2,4 brands along with their #7&11 mid sizes brace yourselves for January news.

January news?

@FXDX1450

Do you mean the January news, like in January 2017, January 2016 and January 2015? On those dates it was official that GM had out-sold Ford during the previous year.

Or do you mean, is your tax accountant able to calculate how much money you lost during 2017 on your shares of Ford stock?

No, as in D- none of the above. You my friend are whistling past the graveyard, with your purposeful Pride and Prejudice alliterations. See you at the Detroit Auto Show.
As for my stock portfolio all is good,very good.
