I don't believe you can comment on GM's recent history on truck volume since anytime a new truck is released the production volume starts off typically slow and the production usually starts off with high end high profit margin trucks. Having said this I sure see a lot the new GMC trucks and less Chevy trucks.

It wasn't long ago when ram released there new 1500 trucks and it was several months after these trucks were on dealer lots that I seen the first one on the road. Also I recall during this time ram sales numbers dropped.

I have never understood why so many folks care about what out sells the rest. I just buy what I like. Couldn't care less about what other folks buy.
Unless you own stock in the companys why would you care?

Ford cares for claiming to be number one for 40 years
I'm sure there are many who could care less about those numbers, but there are also many who don't realize GM trucks as a whole out sell Ford. All three trucks are great in their own ways, but the numbers do show GM is making what people want.


Do they outsell Ford as a whole? Just seen some stats in another thread and elsewhere showing Ford outsold Chevy/GMC combined by quite a large margin in the full size market at least based on 2018. As a longtime GM owner my next truck most likely will not be a GM but a tossup between Ford and Ram.

BTW I know some of you don't care [emoticon]

I think if GM was so horrible, and so many are still holding on to the bailout issue of 10 years ago, then what explains that they are the number one auto manufacturer every year in the U.S.A ?? A whole lot of idiots I guess??

On another note, Ford and GM have flip flopped over the last 10 years with who sold more trucks . Sierra and silverado combicombined. Then when the Colorado and canyon became all new , the combined sales of all GM trucks have topped Ford the last 4 years

Yes...thank you! I've owned all 3 (well, Dodge before it became Ram) and I'm not loyal to any. If GM would have put out a larger replacement for the 6.0 sooner, I would have bought another 2500HD gasser. I like my F-250's power but miss the IFS of the GM. 4-5 years from now, I'll be looking at the big 3 again to pull something bigger.

I agree with you and when "bailout" comes up everyone jumps on GM yet FCA and Ford benefited. Had GM and/or FCA failed Ford would be singing a different tune and may have been bankrupt themselves.

Went real info, walk through a camp ground and see what people pulling heavy trailers are using. That speaks more on what to get to tow than, real world use.

Ford should be ashamed they tell people they can tow 10K with an F150 eco boost. Half tons OK for popups or small trailers, 3/4 or more for trailers of any size.
