Best Selling New Pickup Trucks in June 2015
Truck sales are still booming in the United States, automakers sold just shy of 200,000 pickups in the month of June. An interesting fact is, for every ten new trucks sold, four of them were General Motors products.
The number one truck in America is still the Ford F-Series pickup. The reigning champion slipped in vehicle sales during June, selling only 55,171 trucks. This number is down -8.9 percent from June 2014's sales of 60,560. Fords YTD total sales are also down from last year's 365,825 (2014) vs. 357,180 (2015) for a loss of -2.4 percent. These losses are starting to become a trend for the F-Series pickup, is this the beginning of the long reigning champions fall from power? We'll just have to sit back and see.

Full size pickups saw a 4.4 percent improvement in June with a total of 169,750 units. This allowed them to dominate 85 percent of the market. The small and midsize trucks were also up 29,493 units or 53 percent. Toyota had a great month with its Toyota Tacoma they controlled 54 percent of the small and midsized market with a 31.1 percent increase from June 2014 with 15,959 sales.
Chevrolet had a great month with its Chevrolet Silverado pickup. They easily overcame June 2014's total truck sales figure of 43,519 with 51,548 for the June 2015. This is an increase of 18.4 percent and they only trail Ford's F-Series by 3623 sales. Chevy is still outpacing last year's total sales by approximatly 35,000 sales (14.6%). The Chevrolet Colorado did not do well last month, with only 6558 truck sales, it had a five month low. On the other hand the GMC Canyon made up for some of the sales by achieving its second best month ever since it's return in fall 2014.
The Ram P/U is holding strong in third place with 33,332 truck sales, a small increase of 0.6 percent increase from June 2014's 33,149. Ram also had a slight increase in YTD sales of 212,716 for 2015 over 203,860 for 2014 (4.3% increase).
Keep in mind, when making an offer on a new vehicle, factory invoice is not what a dealer actually pays for a new car or truck from the manufacturer. There are occasionally secret hidden rebates and factory to dealer incentives that will help bring down a dealers cost. Knowing how to find out if the vehicle you're looking at has one of these discounts will greatly save you money. Visit my section, figuring dealer cost on any new car to read more.

Competition Between Dealers Always Gets You the Best Price
When negotiating a new car or truck's price, it's important to know the dealer invoice price and what other people are paying for the same vehicle in your local area. Otherwise, you won't know what's a good price to pay for the vehicle. I highly recommend using an online referral service such as CarClearanceDeals and Edmunds, their quotes will automatically include any discounts or cash-back incentives currently available.
In addition, the above sites will tell you which dealerships in your local area are currently the most flexible with their new car pricing. These sites provide valuable information for anyone thinking about buying or leasing a new car or truck.
