Pickup Truck Sales Breakdown: November 2017

2017 chevy-trucks-three II

From the looks of the first 11 months of 2017, we're "guesstimating" that the final pickup truck sales tally will be somewhere near 2.6 million units, making up about 15 percent of all automotive sales. When you add the elevated transaction prices and profit margins on pickups — many of which are premium trim packages — you see why trucks are important to automakers, especially those who sell a lot of them.

The Toyota Tacoma and Chevrolet Colorado continued to shine in the mid-size segment, accounting for almost 70 percent of all mid-size sales for November. Ford's F-Series continued to dominate the full-size class, but the story of the month was the Nissan Titan. The combination of half-ton Titan and Titan XD sales gained momentum, creeping closer to the Toyota Tundra than ever before. According to Nissan, this was the first time the Titan outsold the mid-size Frontier in a given month. Despite these gains, however, GM kept the pickup sales crown because of its three-truck strategy.

We don't expect the year-end finishing order to change much for December, but you can bet Ram will be pushing to outsell the Chevrolet Silverado, Tacoma will be stretching to beat the GMC Sierra and the Colorado will be inching closer to the Tundra. We'll know how it all shakes out Jan. 3, 2018, when automakers will post December 2017 sales numbers.

Nothing else needs to be said.

C'mon their GM supporters..., The F-Series has outsold the Silverado for 2017 no matter how you twist the numbers..., And you'll twist them all weekend long...

Whats interesting is, we GM guys will soon not be able to count all trucks and win, its very close now and Ford continue to pull away in the full size category even when combining Sierra/Silverado. If I were a GM exec, I would be worried.

Why are you comparing 2 different model trucks to the one Silverado? Why not compare the Silverado to just the F-150? Wait, would it be that Ford doesn't want the embarrassment of revealing that the Silverado is the actual best selling full size truck? Yep, that would be it.

Toyota outsells 2 GM Trucks in the midsize segment with one truck.

@ CT...,
Aren't all these manufacturers at full production? For instance, without building a new factory, the Tundra and Colorado are at full factory output. (As well as most other models)
It's a balancing act for the manufacturers and their product line-up.

@ GMSRGREAT..., please do not respond to my posts. Thank You in advance.

Wow!! That's a ton of trucks by all manufacturers! I have never cared about who sells more! I just care about reliability!
What amazes me is that the amount of vehicles being sold and the cost of these vehicles keeps skyrocketing! I guess that's why they keep increasing prices because we keep buying them!

Here's an example..My buddy bought a brand new Yukon XL Denali in 2003. MSRP was around $43,500. He just bought a 2017 Cadillac Escallade MSRP was $99,600. Now I know one is Cadillac and other is Denali but doubling the amount it cost 14 years ago is CRAZY!! I can tell you that the hard working Americans salary hasn't doubled!!

TNT- supply and demand, as long as people will pay ridiculous amounts for a Caddy which is not much more of a vehicle than a Tahoe, then by all means keep raising the price. I had a buddy who bought an Expedition new a few years ago for 65K loaded. He also drove a Lincoln and that was 10K more in price, but he said he couldn't really see the difference so he went with the expedition instead. Yet people still buy the more expensive one since it says Lincoln or Caddy on the side. Crazy to me, but if you can do it, do it. For now I'll stick with my plain Jane Silverado.

@ TNTGMC..., I hear you about prices. I bought a '97 middle of the road truck for $26,000+, in 2012 that same middle of the road truck was $38,000+. Now that same middle of the road truck sticker's for $43.000+. I can't raise my prices in my business without chaos. Thank God that 2012 truck is reliable.

I find extremely funny that GM falls short in each and every category segment, even so presenting two of everything.

It's rather pathetic.

Easy there Frank..., it has much more to do with factory capacity than just not selling enough. Every manufacturer leads one way or another.

GM sucks.

Can't outsell Taco even with the Ford Ranger gone.

I find extremely funny that GM falls short in each and every category

@Frank

All categories except the one that counts most---in 2017 GM sells the most pickups! More than Ford, Toyota, Nissan, Honda, and RAM

I'll bet you're laughing out loud over that one!

I'll bet you're laughing out loud over that one!

Go ford tu eres la number one and keep crushing GARBAGE MOTORS COMPANY HAHAHAH.

And things are gonna be better when the ranger comes out all we have to do is wait and see.

I'd be more interested in knowing what percentage of those sales are 150/1500 vs 250/2500

@ Blue Collar Man...,
Oh most definitely! And break-out retail/fleet/business sales.

GM fan boys enjoy you total sales lead while you have it. When Ford puts the new Ranger on the market you'll be relegated to 2nd place forever.

all we have to do is wait and see...

You should know about "waiting and seeing."

Ford has not had a really new Ranger in the US since the 1990s when the Ranger got independent front suspension and the OHC 2500 motor.

Let's see if there's a Ranger on Ford lots before the end of 2018, or you could just "wait and see"

It's surprising that even including the mid-size twins, GM hasn't pulled that far ahead of Ford....

I'm not biased to either brand, but it will be interested to see what happens once the ranger is back.

Despite Ford management including semi's, cement trucks, delivery truck's and anything above an F350 as a pick up truck, they still get blasted by the honest reporting of General Motors. GENERAL MOTORS CORPORATION THE BEST SELLING, MOST RELIABLE, LONGEST LASTING, MOST CAPABLE, MOST EDUCATED BUYERS, FOR 50 YEARS RUNNING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Ford motors, the New England Patriots of the auto industry

@tj. You are an idi*t. You know darn well f150 - f550 is what is reported in f series sales. Its too bad for GM they cannot make a competive chassis cab above the 3500.

Since GM has sold 130,000 mid-sizers, the overall gap in total sales will flip to Ford when Ranger comes for sure. And could we ever get the real class total breakdowns? Why not just tell the truth?

It's tj & GMRGREAT leading the pack in the idiocracy dept....oh wait...papajim is the joker in the middle

Oh good one, the team that keeps on winning.

Why are you comparing 2 different model trucks to the one Silverado? Why not compare the Silverado to just the F-150? Wait, would it be that Ford doesn't want the embarrassment of revealing that the Silverado is the actual best selling full size truck? Yep, that would be it.

Posted by: GMSRGREAT | Dec 8, 2017 9:06:56 AM

So that comparison would be Ford F 150 vs Chevrolet Silverado 1500.
Do you have those source numbers handy? Please post.

Some embarrassing GM comments on here from the same people over and over. Am I the only rational one left? I have a Silverado and like it, and has many miles on it, but man you people drive me away from GM products with the immature comments. The whole who sold the most is the funniest thing I have ever heard on here. When you have to include all trucks made to to barely beat Ford, when Ford does not even have the truck in the market to compete, that says a lot. Rant complete, and I really feel good since I am not attached to the hip of one manufacture vs another.

-CT

Ford sells 2,500 pickups a day and Nissan sells 7,600 in a month and Nissan is the big story?

So that comparison would be Ford F 150 vs Chevrolet Silverado 1500.

Chevy's only full size model Silverado has sold 518,188 YTD. Which of Ford's two models has sold that many?

34,325 is the YTD advantage margin for GM. What's that like 1/2 month of Stinkarado sales. A pathetic number for having 2 brands against one brand . Can't wait for the river of GM tears after the Ranger launch.

Why does America hate GMC? Sierra and Canyon numbers are terrible. Why does GMC even exist?

@GMSRGREAT you know darn well the Silverado sales include 1500-3500 same with the Sierra,the F-series is F-150-F-550,so in full size when you add GM's 6 trucks to Fords 5 Ford has a 97,684 truck lead

Wrong all day long!
The Chevrolet Silverado family is comprised of three models 1500, 2500, 3500.
http://www.chevrolet.com/silverado-pickup-trucks
The number you present is a total of all three models of Silverado 1500,2500,3500.Ford's number 807,379 is a total of all F series models.150 - 550.
709,959 is the sum total of all GM full size.Which falls short of Ford by -(97,684).

This should guide that poor clueless soul. F150 vs Silvy 1500, it's from 2015, but nothing ever changes with Chevy.

http://news.pickuptrucks.com/2016/06/ford-vs-chevy-2015-sales-recap.html

"As you can see, the F-150, although just a tick behind the Silverado 1500 by July of 2015, came on strong in the second half of the year to push a good distance ahead of Chevy. Of course, as any diehard GM fan will tell you, if you combine the Chevy Silverado 1500 and GMC Sierra 1500 sales numbers (they are produced and assembled on the same plant lines), the total trounces F-150 sales.

Likewise, the Ford Super Duty continued its domination of the heavy-duty segment. And that's true even if you combine Chevy and GMC HD pickup sales numbers."

@ Frank..., excellent find concerning sales. Why doesn't PUTC publish this now? It would certainly clear-up some of the mis-information as far as break-down of sales.

2 reasons really,

Because there are agendas on this site. Probably due to relationships and a money trail. At times this site is more biased than any other I read. A little history search does provide some answers as to where this site's roots are.

The other being some manufacturers would prefer not to breakdown sales anymore because it could affect marketing claims. Either way, your probably not going to see the level of breakdown you would like.

I assume your new to this site by asking people not to respond to your posts. Good luck and get ready to get overwhelmed by all the wealth of information that flows from the comment section. Not many constructive conversations. Frank is a shining star in this regard.

People get owned, then resort to a "BIAS SITE" Comment. Geez, I wonder how bad you cry when your team loses the Super Bowl.

f'ken stvpid star.

Excellent find Frank. You just confirmed in your post that the Silverado outsold the F-150 model and destroyed the Superduty models. Silverado, the best selling full size model truck.

@GMRSGREAT,

Please explain your logic.


@andrwken. Be careful there about throwing the word knowledge around. I read a comment by you yesterday that said Cadillac resistance spot welds aluminum to steel. That is false. GM cannot make a structural steel to aluminum weld. The CT6 is using structural adhesive, SPR, FFS, al-al spot welding. There is no al to steel spot welding

Frank- this reminds me of an addict. They are always quick to say they are not addicted but prove otherwise by hitting the pipe. This character has been hitting the pipe and denying it everyday.

-CT

@CT,

I try bro. Have a good weekend.

This place is toxic

@ andrwken..., I hear ya. Your points have a lot of truth.
I've been reading the site since it started, or around there. Just recently began commenting because there are quite a few posters that give out good advice and points of knowledge. This site used to have a forum but that got out of hand. Even when not in the "War Room".

@Frank

The Patriots???

You'd have a good record too if your team played the Dolphins, the Jets, and the Bills twice each season.

When was the last time there was more than one team in the awful AFC East with a season record better than .500?

@papajim
You made a good point, but fewer and fewer people care anymore about the NotForLong league. They just offered a new contract to the worst commissioner in sports. Just toast.
