Most Popular New Pickup Trucks Sold for October 2015

The Ford F-Series pickup is America’s most popular pickup for October 2015. Ford sold 65,500 trucks beating same month last year’s number of 63,410 by 3.3 percent.

The F-Series pickup beat out the number two ranked Chevrolet Silverado and the number four ranked GMC Sierra separately. However, since they’re both sister trucks and both manufactured by GM. You could argue that you can add their monthly sales numbers together and say they beat the F-Series pickup by 4,668 units. I guess it’s just how you want to report and break down the numbers.

The Chevrolet Silverado came in second place again in October. American’s purchased 51,647 Silverado’s last month, an increase of 10 percent over same month last year. The Silverado’s YTD sales is just shy of half-a-million trucks sold with 492,551.

Dodge has a firm grip on the number three spot with 40,931 Ram pickups sold for the month. The closest threat to their position is the GMC Sierra in fourth with 18,521 sales for the month.

The first foreign manufacturer on the list is Toyota, they have the Tacoma in the fifth spot with 15,233 sales and the Tundra in sixth spot with 9,514. Toyota missed it’s breakeven number for same month last year’s number by only 11 units, showing a -0.1 percent decline.

Four of the ten trucks on the list posted losses in October over October 2014. The GMC Sierra, Toyota Tundra, Nissan Titan and the largest decline in sales for the month was 27.5 percent for the Nissan Frontier.

Competition Between Dealers Always Gets You the Best Price

When negotiating a new pickups 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 Ryde Shopper or Motor Trend, their quotes will automatically include any discounts or cash-back incentives currently available in the marketplace.
