2021 q2 q1 truck sales report results united states

The November 2021 U.S. sales numbers are in and here are all the details. The Ford F-series truck sales numbers show signs of a turnaround. Toyota Tacoma struggles to maintain strong sales in November, although it is still leading the midsize pickup truck segment.

As you may know, not all manufacturers are currently reporting sales on a monthly basis. Some companies such as General Motors and Stellantis report on a quarterly basis, and we will report on this at the beginning of January 2022.

While the F-series sales numbers are still not near where they used to be a couple of years ago, these most recent numbers show a sign of hope. Industry insiders are reporting that there is a light at the end of the tunnel for the end of microchips and other shortages. Let’s hope GM, Ram, Jeep, Nissan, and Toyota will soon report improved sales numbers and better available inventory.

The all-new 2022 Toyota Tundra is just reaching dealerships as we speak. The old Tundra ended production, and this is the reason for the steep downturn in the November sales.

The Toyota Tacoma appears to have a comfortable sales lead in the midsize segment, but its November sales are down -20.7% when compared to the same period a year ago. The Ford Ranger sales continue its recovery. It’s still not where it used to be, but the gap is starting to narrow.

The Honda Ridgeline is having a great sales time. The Ridgeline sold more pickup trucks than Ford Maverick or Hyundai Santa Cruz.
