November's Fastest- and Slowest-Selling Pickups

IMG_0435 II

The end of the year is always a good time to watch pickup truck sales to find out where the best deals are and which manufacturers are offering the best incentives. To help you with any buying decisions, here are fastest- and slowest-selling pickups for November. We're a little behind this month because we've been working on some big comparison tests that you'll see after the holidays.

For the top 10 selling pickups, we set a threshold of 100 units in order to remove the unicorns and small-volume specialty packages.

The most obvious thing you’ll notice about the top 10 sellers this month is how diverse the vehicles are: The list includes everything from four-door half-tons (typically the strongest sellers in the truck segment) to new and old midsize trucks to heavy-duty haulers.

There isn't a threshold for the 10 slowest sellers; we let the numbers speak for themselves. This month both lists are made up of only 2015 models and measure how many days a vehicle has been on a lot before a buyer signs the final paperwork to purchase the truck.

It's not a very diverse list at all. 9 of the 10 fastest selling trucks are crew cab four door

Only three of the slowest selling trucks are crew cab, primarily single cab and extended

As a side note, breaking out the Denali trim as a separate vehicle is stupid. The 2015 2500 Crew Cab Sierra is both the fastest and slowest selling vehicle?

I don't see Ford broken down by King Ranch, Platinum, XL, etc...

looks like gm/chevy need to do another redesign, since they are all top of their class on the slowest selling list

Nice to see Ram doing good!




The reason why Ford F-150 is not on the list is because they are looking at 2015.

I wonder why the Best Truck on the Planet is not going to sell 500K this year? Oh, I know, because it's not.


I'm surprised that the GM's are not selling faster with the end of the year incentive campaign that's been advertised so much...

I just picked up a Ram 2500 HD! Luv it! Go Ram!

"we let the numbers speak for themselves"

So what exactly does it mean when the gmc sierra crew cab is on both lists? These numbers don't speak for themselves because they don't really mean anything. The f-150 will likely be near the top on the december list since it is in high demand right now and scarce supply. The dealers that will actually let people buy them are selling them within hours of hitting the lot (some dealers won't sell their current 2015s until they get more in). But can you really come to any meaningful conclusion from this? Not that I'm aware of. If you could, then maybe would actually let us know what you can conclude from this data instead of just saying the numbers speak for themselves.


It's the GMC Sierra Denail that sells faster.

can't wait till I get my new 2015 F-150 the Dodge Boys will be so jealous!
Did you see that 2.7 Eco-Boost with better performance numbers than a 5.7 Hemi?

These new F150's are unmatched on how quick and powerful they are. They are going to sell tons as people see through the anti aluminum marketing by ram.... Notice how GM is quiet when it comes to aluminum cause they are going to it soon.

2015 f150 3.5 vs the 2014 5.7 ram

GM really hasn't even been quiet about it. They have already admitted they are moving to aluminum and turbocharged engines. Ram is also going to smaller turbocharged engines and have said they will be discontinuing the ecodiesel within a couple years, but they are still in denial about aluminum for now (probably because they are a long ways off from being able to afford the switch).

I would like to see them design a pickup where you don't need to lift the hood to fill the windshield washer container.
They could place a fill cap at an opening on the front grill.
Its not cause I'm lazy its just a pain of cleaning off all the snow, ice and mud on the top of the hood so when I open it all that junk slides down on top of the engine.
Or another idea is design a system where you use the gallon jug as the container where they design a round holder compartment that fits those jugs perfectly and just have a cap with a hose that you screw on the jug.
This way you won't spill half of it when you pour it in the small opening on the existing container.
We have a local service station where you can choose either $2.99 a gal or for $2.50 he will fill up your windshield washer container no matter how much it takes, but most windshield washer containers hold less than 1 gal, I wish I had one on my truck that holds 2 gallons then I would make out on that deal.
There are times driving thru a heavy snowstorm the only way to keep the snow off the windshield so you can see is constantly run the windshield washer where I can use 2 or 3 gallons a day.
In the past I did notice heavy use of windshield washer will cause the metal around the windshield to rust out.

@Tom3: You'd probably be much better off if you Rain-Xed your windshield in warmer weather (or in a 65° garage) and added a bit of Rain-X (or equivalent, of course) to your washer fluid. If you did, that snow would slide off much, much easier and you wouldn't need to use as much fluid to keep your glass clear.
