UPDATED: Full Size Truck Sales: Ram VS Competition Q2 2022!

Sales Are Down Across The Board And Ram Slips From Second To Third...

As the continued microchip shortages haven’t been hard enough for automakers to navigate, skyrocketing fuel prices have joined the fray. These outside factors have really seemed to impact the full-sized truck market through the first half of the year. 

Note: This article has now been updated with F-Series sales numbers.

Ford outpaced the industry for the quarter with 158,644 F-Series trucks sold, a small increase of 0.3% compared to Q2 2021. All other brands saw a decrease for the quarter. While Ram was in second following Ford through Q1 of this year, Q2 has seen Ram take a 28% hit in sales compared to Q2 of 2021. The Silverado saw a 13.9% sales decrease from Q2 of 2021, but was able to sell 22,853 more units than Ram for the quarter.

GMC was down just over 14%, while Toyota was down 10.5%. Nissan’s Titan was down a whopping 53.5% for the quarter, with just 4,797 units sold during the three-month period. Rumors are that the Titan is on its deathbed, and while Nissan disputed those rumors, it’s hard to imagine it will be replaced at the end of the product cycle. 

Is the Nissan Titan on its deathbed? (Nissan).
