You did note a decline of 8.9% over same month last year?


And Silverado is up 18.4%.......I guess, never mind the Sierra numbers?

No use in whining, the Ford is still number one in sales. Looks like GM is trying to dump as many 2015's pickups as possible since the word is that GM will be converting to aluminum bodies trying to copy Ford.

I suppose if you don't actually read the news it is easy to get confused.
Ford F150 is so far the # 1 truck line but is again being out sold by the GM twins.

Hey Pappy, if the new Fords are so awesome, why don't you help out their declining sales and go buy one?

You are right if you look at the total of both GMC and Chevy, they are out selling all Ford trucks. I suspect if Merc and Lincoln were also selling their own brand of trucks, it might be closer.

Here are the numbers by specific brands:

Nothing wrong with my 2008 F-250 V-10, runs great and after 160,000 miles, it still runs like a new one.

My wife has a 2007 Lincoln LT with the 5.4 and I keep trying to get her to trade it for a new F-150, but she refuses to let her Lincoln go.

When I read the link, I see that you posted numbers from April. The most recent month that F150 sales DIDN'T decline both YTD and monthly sales.

The 'decline' is due to the retooling of the production lines. My order is stuck. Due October. Selling lots here.

I saw an industry chart in a meeting last week. We have to wait till year end numbers are complete, but the trending thus far will make it interesting. ..and close. I suspect both Chev and Ford are going to have to be creative in their year end marketing to win the race.

Ford made a mistake styling the most recent F-150 to look like a Toyota. Just looks like a toy; horrible front, laughable styling from the rear. Looks cheap, like it's trying to be a Tonka toy transformer truck.

The GM trucks, long the suffering from a styling standpoint, have finally got it right. The new Silverado is a good looking truck. Looks tough, not overdone, no silly headlight treatment or blatant Toyota styling thievery, and isn't designed around gimmicky tricks...yet.

For the moment, and I never thought I'd say this, but GM easily wins the style and substance awards on their new trucks. Ford lost it with this last design.

GM is not "dumping" trucks. Transaction prices are up and incentives are not. And sales are still up. No need to copy Ford.

Where does your GM aluminum body "intell" come from?

Yeah, it looks just like the Ford Super Duty!! I hope their interiors don't fall apart like they used to. I have a buddy that bought a 2014 and he has had it back to the dealer 3 times to fix the door panels coming apart and rattles they can't find. It does run good, but second place against the 2015 Ford diesel.
