Read something yesterday and not sure of others saw/read it as well, but it said that GM outsold Ford in truck sales for 2021. If true, that would dethrone Ford as the #1 seller of trucks 45+ years running. Truth or rumor?

The sales title has always been a bit of a gimmick. I suspect GM & Ford are in it together as I've never seen them challenge the numbers.

If you look at the specific model, F150 usually wins.
If you combine sierra & silverado (which are effectively the exact same truck except for the name badges), GM usually wins.

In the end, it really doesn't matter. Both sell enough that finding parts and getting repairs will not be an issue (same applies to Dodge and Toyota).

I see plenty of trucks from GM, Ford and Ram everywhere pulling trailers, doing heavy work and as grocery getters. I call it one third of each. All are good. I have driven only GM cars with one dodge dart thrown in and only Ram trucks with one ford Econoline van thrown in. good stuff

BTW GM sold more in 2020 than the other two also.

I dont think its about the trucks anymore. This year and last, the one able to secure the most chips wins.

And Tesla's sales almost doubled because they program their own chips and were able to program/reprogram cheaper available chips.

If it was that simple, where's the cybertruck?

who win's depends on what is said. Which BRAND sold the most, Ford is perenial winner. Which COMPANY sold the most, General Motors most often outsells Ford Motor Company with Chevy and GMC combined sales. Which model sells the most, Ford F150 is a decades long winner. Which is the lowest selling brand? I'll bet GMC is near the bottom, below RAM/Dodge, maybe even toyota, but above Nissan and honda. (just my guess since I don't have any data)

To me it is all irrelevant. I buy what I like the best for what I want to do. All three mfg make really nice trucks today. Glad I have so much to choose from.

I doubt the delay in delivering the CyberTruck has to do with lack of chips. More that Elon has found it harder for the engineers to live up to what comes from his mouth. I suspect IF GM or Ford deliver what they promise for their EV truck line, Cybers will come in third. They be just butt ugly. (My opinion of course)
