Year Wrap-Up: Who Won the 2017 Pickup Truck Sales War in the USA?

2016 pickup truck usa sales report summary

Who sells the most pickup trucks in America? Pickup truck wars are alive and well in the United States. Ford F-series closes the year on a strong note and just over 3,000 units shy of 900,000 trucks sold. Ford did not sell the most pickups in the USA overall. That title again goes to General Motor with nearly 950,000 units (see below). Naturally, the total include all full-size and midsize pickups, and Ford is still not selling any Ranger in the US. This will change in about a year.

Nearly every truck maker saw a sales improvement in 2017 with the exception of GMC.

2017 was a great year for pickup trucks, but 2018 could possibly be even better with several all-new trucks entering the market.
