Chevrolet has sold 114,313 Silverados down 15.7% in the same time frame. The GMC Sierra is down 2.2% compared to last years first quarter with 40,546 trucks sold, Toyotas Tundra is down 4.6% with 25,100 units sold and the Nissan Titan is becoming even more of a bit player down 23.9% with 9,683 pickups sold through the first quarter.
Ram is outpacing the industry average and gaining market share with the largest percentage change out of all the full sized trucks. Ford was the only other brand that moved more trucks in the same period compared to last year. Chevrolet and Nissan took the largest hits.
This has been our first opportunity this year to compare sales of the Ram to the F150 and Silverado/Sierra as Ford and GM report sales quarterly.
