Ford F-Series Is No Longer the Sales Leader! GM and Ram Sales Are Still Going Up in 2020! (Sales Report)

The first quarter 2020 full-size truck sales report brings many important surprises. General Motors (Chevy Silverado and GMC Sierra) pickup trucks are now the number one best selling in America. GM sales grew in a big way (27.2%) when compared to the first quarter of last year.

Ford F-series truck sales were down in a significant way (-13.1%). Yes, the Ford F-series still sold more trucks Chevy sold Silverados, but once you combine Silverado and fast-growing Sierra numbers together – the different is clear.

Ford explains the F-series sales decline this way: “The decline is explained by the timing of our fleet sales and weaker retail sales in March due to coronavirus.

Ram trucks had a successful Q1 2020 with a sales improvement of 7%. The same cannot be said for the Toyota Tundra and Nissan Titan. The Tundra and Titan are both seeing double-digit declines when compared to last year.

We are all going through some very tough times. It is reflected in every aspect of our lives, including the very important automotive industry.
