The latest U.S. sales numbers are in and GM’s heavy-duty pickup trucks are making huge gains in Q3 2022. The new Toyota Tundra is also posting big numbers over the last three months. However, the Ford F-Series and the Nissan Titan truck lineup show worrisome sales trends in September 2022.

On the bright side, the Ford F-Series truck outsold the GM full-size truck lineup in Q3 2022 by just 185 trucks. The worrisome sign is the F-Series September 2022 sales. Ford sold just 46,338 F-series trucks in the U.S. last month, which is a -26.6% from Q3 2021. Nissan sold just 420 Titan trucks in the country last month. Nissan sold more LEAF EVs than Titan trucks last month.

U.S. Full-size HEAVY DUTY Truck Sales: Q3 2022

As you can see here, GM heavy-duty pickup truck sales are growing in a big way. A big reason for this sales growth is added production capacity.

Here is what General Motors has to say about this:

GM also significantly increased capacity for heavy-duty models by about 90,000 units, which includes the expansion of production capacity at Flint Assembly in Michigan in 2021 and the reopening of Oshawa Assembly in Ontario, Canada in 2022. This flexibility to meet customer demand has helped GM grow its retail share of the heavy-duty market from 29% in 2019 to 52% through Sept. 25 (J.D. Power PIN), with large increases in total share as well.

*Ford and Ram do not break out sales figures by half-ton (F-150/Ram 1500) versus HD trucks.

Ford and Ram do not report their heavy-duty truck sales separately like GM is doing. So we do not have precise data here at this point.
