F-150 Was Up, Silverado and Ram Were Down; Some Mid-Size Pickups Report Strong Results.
Pickup sales slumped year over year in June, with some winners — and a long list of users. While demand is high in general, a mix of supply chain disruptions, low dealer inventories and customer-order delays have hit some brands. Yes, customers are buying, but for the pickup truck category, it’s a battle month-to-month. Chevy’s Silverado, which outsold Ford’s F-150 in June of 2021, was trounced in June of 2022. Interestingly, some of the mid-size pickups — the Chevrolet Colorado, Nissan’s Frontier, GMC Canyon and Honda Ridgeline all were up in June of 2022 year-over-year.
We were surprised to see the Jeep Gladiator and the Ford Ranger failed to beat June 2021 numbers, while poor showings by popular Toyota and Honda models also surprised the industry.
