Best-Selling Pickup Trucks: May 2016

Sales-Header_Fords[1]2

Although several automakers had strong Memorial Day weekend sales events, the fact that this May had two fewer selling days when compared with last year seemed to significantly hurt monthly sales totals. Add to that a lackluster economy in many sectors and you begin to see why some analysts are predicting a year-end sales number significantly lower than the strong finish we had in 2015.

Ford was the big pickup truck winner in May as the only full-size truckmaker in the green as dealers try to clear out 2016 Super Duty supplies to make way for the all-new 2017 models set to start shipping by early fall. F-150 production at both plants is at full tilt.

At first glance, GM looks like it took a big hit with the Chevrolet Silverado absorbing a double-digit month-over-month sales drop, but both its midsize players — the Chevrolet Colorado and GMC Canyon — held their own, up double digits for the year. The other big midsize winner for May was the aging Nissan Frontier, while the all-new Tacoma struggled.

Expect continued competition through the summer months, as spring thaws and heavy rain damage are likely to stimulate big construction projects in the South and Southwest. We'll have a closer look at midsize, full-size and brand sales breakdowns in a few days.

Notice how the cheapest of all bids are not selling, fiat trucks. I wonder why that is???????????. Is not fiat offering the most off retail also with the cheapest lease offers? Funny how that POS company cannot give their trucks away.

hahahahahahahahaha because fiat is counting mini van sales. Now that is really funny. Hey, if we count mini vans we can add everything up and barely outsell Ford or GM trucks. You can have that mini van boi.

HEMI V8 - how's RAM's buy back program going?! Have you sold back your piece of junk yet?!

Don't let us get started on RAM's long history of recalls that is probably worse than Chevy's shake...I guess understandable;

@LMAO
Everyone counts minivans and suvs. Ford just didn't sell enough.
Chrysler is #1 in light trucks, beats the whole Fseries. LOL.


The numbers are clear.
Chrysler is #1 in light trucks again.

UM yea, Ford or GM do not sell minivans. So I guess you are proud that fiat counts trucks, suvs, vans and mini vans to say they outsell Ford F series. HAHA they can have that math.

It's not Chrysler fault, that Ford don't produce minivans, but they produce suvs. I don't make the rules. Chrysler doesn't make the rules. They count as Light Trucks and Chrysler is #1 again.
Ford made the rule to count the whole Fseries just to beat the other brands. It didn't help them this time anyway in light trucks category. CHRYSLER IS #1.

Actually that is fiats rule to try and bias the numbers towards them. But like I said, if fiat wants to count all of their suv's, vans, mini vans, and trucks to say they outsell Ford F series then you can have it. Weird math but again it is fiat.

Reason Fiat counts minivans as light trucks is it brings up the fleet wide capacity and reliability average of the ram truck line. The fiat Minivans are way more reliable and have bigger capacities of the old and outdated truck line that has the industry worst reliability ratings. With out lumping minivans in to prop up the ram truck line the Ram brand would be dead

That is true, a 6 passenger mini van has more capacity that a fiat 1500. LOL. However the fiat minivans hold the last 3 spots in reliability compared to other minivans in the segment.

A ram truck is nothing more then a minivan.... Except the Ram truck is a minivan with very bad reliability and doesn't have stow and go seating in the back.

Maybe when they go under this time Ford can absorb their best vehicles, but I don't know what they would be. Corvette?
Posted by: Tom | Jun 1, 2016 1:07:33 PM

Rather than absorbing their best vehicles, maybe Ford can learn how to build a transmission! One that actually works?

Well, third party published Light Truck Numbers. Fiat doesn't make the rules, but Vehicle Industry.
Chrysler is #1 in Light Trucks and there is nothing you can do. Just keep crying constantly, like you always do.

I don't see where you are seeing the 3rd party adding mini vans. http://www.goodcarbadcar.net/2016/06/usa-minivan-sales-figures-may-2016-ytd.html

looks to be more of a fiat propaganda thing again.

Ford F series easily number 1 in Canada as well as the US. Nothing compares. Ram and GM trade 2nd and 3rd spots in both the US and Canada. GM is number 3 in full size pickups in Canada... LOL!!!!

http://www.goodcarbadcar.net/2016/06/canada-pickup-truck-sales-figures-may-2016-ytd.html

Ford does count the F150-F750 in monthly sales numbers. They sold 67,412 F-Series trucks and 1,249 heavy trucks. Whats my point you may ask? A heavy truck is a class 7-8 which is a truck that has a GVWR of 26,001-33,000lbs. Ford only sold 1,249 F-Series trucks were class 7-8 in May. Very few f650,s and f750 are considered above a class 6. Just something to think about.............https://finance.yahoo.com/news/f-series-truck-sales-post-131500983.html

Looks like your link puts to rest that Ford does not count F650 and F750 sales in the F series numbers.

F-Series 67,412
Heavy Trucks 1,249

Last year, 2015, Ferrari (you know the Italian automaker) delivered a total of 7,664 cars...in the meantime Ford is recalling more than 432,000 Focus, Escape, and C-Max vehicles from the 2015 model year. According to the automaker, some of those vehicles suffer from a software glitch that could allow engines to keep running, even after drivers turn them off...lol

Yeah but Ford sold way more cars than Ferrari, Scott would rather have a POS C-Max...idiot!

Who F##'n cares how many they sold!

Well I masterbate 6 times a day. Where is the 3rd party information on that? What an idiot!

gm has 67 days worth. ford??? anyone............

Ford orgullosa de ser mexicana - it's the percentage of recalls from the total number of vehicles sold that count.

For e.g; Ferrari with their measly 7664 sales in 2015, half of them probably went back in for mechanical issues (I know, triple-ex girlfriend's had one & spent more time back at the dealer for problems than on the road).

I am certain if someone can round up accurate percentages of vehicles sold VS mechanical issues/recalls; RAM will surely top it & GM a close 2nd....hahahaha!!

Those are break down numbers for subcategories, but this third party publisher says, that CHRYSLER is #1 in Light Trucks. Light Trucks is a category accepted by Vehicle Industry. Fseries is gimmick made up by Ford.


http://online.wsj.com/mdc/public/page/2_3022-autosales.html

Ford doesn't break down numbers for each model easily to find, so when someone asks, what you drive, don't forget to answer "an Fseries, most selling truck". Don't you dare to say F150, because you might be in troubles LOL.

Ford depends on trucks and when economy plummets again, they are the one to go south, but who knows, they might ged Feds money again.

I guess a website dedicated to pickup trucks need a moron coming in spew car BS. Congrats.... You are that kid!!!

RAM - you're dumber than I thought; RAM includes 1500-4500 in their truck sales & Ford from F150-550 - so what is your point?!

Oh, I get it - you need to include mini-vans now to boost overall "Light truck" figures even though RAM is hardly a light truck.

Anyways, probably another Sergio maneuver to make the company look better on paper to still find that prospective merger or right out buyer to save a sinking ship...yep those Chinese buyers are looking better & better.

Poor Chrysler, they've being passed around more than a whore; from German sausages to Italian spaghetti & I guess Chinese noodles are next...

@Ram

You hitting up them free doughnuts at your local Ram fix it center? You seem on a sugar high there.

You are on that fiat Crack again. Fiat is in bad shape when fuel prices goes up and economy goes in the dumps. Fiat has all large cars and trucks. Nothing with with good FE that people will be looking for. Ford has Fusion, Focus, Fiesta, truck plants have been updated to meet future products for FE standards. Fiat will be the first to go, again.

Look like ford is leading the pack with the least recalls on 2016 model year f150's. Looks like Ram and GM are fight for the most recalls for 2016 1500's!!!!!

only thing good about GM pickups is if you work as a painter. You can cut time down by not having the paint store shake you paint gallons for your job. You can just through them in your GM 1500 truck and drive to your job as that will shake the paint enough saving you time that you don't have to spend waiting on Sherwin Williams to shake your paint.

This is the GM 1500 professional painter edition. Ground break paint shaking technology built in from the factory. Good thing is you get this new technology from GM wether you want it or not!!!! Every GM 1500 has this new shaking technology built in.

Wow Decade old trucks compared to brand new 2016 paint shaking edition GM's.

I forgot most powerful ecoboost is coming. And most thirsty as well.

The oldest truck the Nissan Frontier had the best sales gain. I guess having the lowest MSRP helps.

Thanks Scott - based on 2016 model year recalls; as I had guessed;

Chevy leads the pack by a long margin (as they sold more than RAM) & RAM will be a close 2nd. Ford's higher sales numbers VS lowest recall rate will also yield lowest percentage recall...we'll at least for now.

Based on the history experience, Ford is recalling 3 to 4 years model, so expect to recall all 2016 in 2020.

I find it pretty comical how uneducated people are..... Their recourse is pinto gas tanks or something.

2016 models RAM and GM are the most recalled. GM ok..... its relatively new model pickup and with that there are a few bugs to work out on newer models but after all these year of ram not really changing since that Twister movie came out, they still can't seem to get it right after all these years. Maybe that is why the ram truck sales and GM trucks sales are down this month is cause of all the recalls people have to take them in for.

Now if we want to go back to 2015 model years. Ford was recalled 1/2 as much as Ram and GM.

Ford 150 2015 model year recalls. 4 recalls
https://www.cars.com/recalls/ford-f150-2015/

Ram 1500 2015 model year recalls. 8 recalls
https://www.cars.com/recalls/ram-1500-2015/

Gm 1500 2015 model year recalls. 7 recalls
https://www.cars.com/recalls/chevrolet-silverado_1500-2015/

Then we can move onto 2014 model years. Ram and GM were a complete heaping piles of crap with all their recalls

Ford 2014 model year f150 recalls. 4 recalls
https://www.cars.com/recalls/ford-f150-2014/

Ram 2014 model year 1500 recalls 11 recalls
https://www.cars.com/recalls/ram-1500-2014/

GM 2014 model year 1500 recalls. 16 recalls
https://www.cars.com/recalls/chevrolet-silverado_1500-2014/

I said 4 years. Don't even try to post Ford recalls because it's all the trucks they made that year.

You said 3 or 4....

Ive posted 3 years worth... 2016,2015,2014 model years..... So for 2013 which make 4 years

Ford 2013 model year f150 recalls. 0 recalls
https://www.cars.com/recalls/ford-f150-2013/

Ram 2013 model year 1500 recalls. 10 recalls
https://www.cars.com/recalls/ram-1500-2013/

GM 2013 model year 1500 recalls. 4
https://www.cars.com/recalls/chevrolet-silverado_1500-2013/


So I have posted 4 model years worth of recalls. 2013,2014,2015,2016. Trucks built in 2012 to 2016. 4 years worth.

Ram and GM are neck and neck with massive amounts of recalls. Ford have next to none!!!!

4 years back.
2015,2014,2013,2012.
