Who Really Sells More Trucks?

Recommended Posts

So, Ford F150 claims to be the No.01 selling truck in North America.

 

Okay, I've often wondered about this, and have my opinion, but does anyone know the actual numbers?

 

Does Ford sell more F150's than GM sells Silverado and Sierra combined? To me, that would be the REAL number.

 

Either way, GM still rules. :P

Even if they do it's because they break and the Ford fanboys just buy new ones. :P

No. If GM combined the two, Ford would be blown outta the water.

That statistic is kind of lame. I'm willing to bet that if they factored in the 3/4 and 1 ton market, the numbers would be much closer. They act like people only buy 1/2 ton trucks.

i dont know, i never see 3/5 1 ton gms where i live. the company i work with had 25 new 1 ton fords, most places around here use the ford as well. we used to run chevys but their front ends cant handle any of the work. as for personal trucks the ford 350 is every where. i could lose count trying to count them as i go down the street

GM does not combine the sales numbers of the Silverado and Sierra's and this is how the F150 is able to beat them.

It's the complete opposite here. All I ever see is 3/4 and 1 ton GM's. Even the 3/4 ton Suburbans are pretty common to see around here.

So according to those numbers, GM seems to out sell Fors quite consistently ln the "light truck" front. That's what I'v always guessed, but it is intersting to see the numbers.

 

Thanks.

the Ford F-series is the best selling truck (150, 250, 350, 450), not just the F-150.

Motor trend or someone posted the numbers a while ago broke down in the different sizes.

There are more 1/2 ton chevys then F-150s, but if you combined the 1/2, 3/4, and 1 ton chevys and compare it to the F-series line, the F-series sells more. BUT then you combined chevy and GMC and it outsells Ford.

Thanks for finding the actual numbers, that was interesting to see.

I believe they say that the F-Series was the best selling truck. Ford does not break down their sales numbers into F-150, F-25-, etc.

 

...but does anyone know the actual numbers?

 

No, only the manufacturer.

 

Does Ford sell more F150's than GM sells Silverado and Sierra combined? To me, that would be the REAL number.

 

I highly doubt it. The vast majority of months, the GM twins hand the F-150 it's ass...as they should.

 

Either way, GM still rules. :thumbs:

 

Well, of course.

I drive to school everyday and pass several construction sites. All I see are yellow Rangers and F-series trucks running around. :thumbs:
