Sorry to clutter your forum up guys! Just wanted to pass along this thread I started in the News forum that talks about the newly released GM truck sales figures.

 

The headline is General Motors sold 5,732 MORE trucks in March 2014 vs March 2013. However, year to date in 2014, General Motors has sold 7,475 LESS trucks than in 2013.

 

Add your thoughts to the thread in the News forum.

Wonder why Ram outsold Chevy? Any thoughts? Is it rebates? Not all the products are out in full swing (i.e HD's or work truck trim)? Another factor?

 

At this time last year wasn't there a big push to get 2013's off the lots since 2014's were there?

Rebates, model switch over and the lack of split LD/HD sales numbers makes drawing comparisons hard.

 

That said.. new models should be selling better YTD. New product and a better economy combining to equal less sales doesn't look like good news on the surface.

Think it is both rebates, autonews cites Ram having the highest incentives as well as all 8,000 of initial batch of diesel half tons selling at release.

 

While I like the new GM trucks, hope they have something up their sleeve for 2015/16 updates.

 

If GM rolled out a small diesel, would it be too late/cost prohibitive? Thinking they are sort of boxed in as if they drop the price of the half ton, then they cannibalize the Colorado/Canyon before they ever hit the street.

 

Does anyone know if the HD's count against the factories cafe standards? Know they do not have EPA mileage estimates, but would think they would want to push that market & take market share from

Ford/Ram.
