It’s no secret, the automotive industry and the world economy are going through a very hard time. Component shortages, inflation, world uncertainty, winter storms, and many other factors combine for a bad sales result. Pickup truck sales in the United States for February 2022 are lower than they have been in a long time.

Let’s take a look at the full-size pickup trucks first. Ford and Toyota are the only ones reporting sales on a monthly basis. The Ford data comes directly from Ford. The Toyota data comes via GoodCarBadCar. While many manufacturers are not reporting sales, it’s alarming to see these low Ford F-Series numbers. The only bright spot is the all-new 2022 Toyota Tundra sales improvement as the company is ramping up production of the new truck.
