    Top-Selling Pickup Trucks Year-To-Date In 2022

    Pickup trucks continue to do very well in the United States through the first quarter of this year, although sales are down from the first quarter of 2021 due to the shortage of microchips.

    Total truck sales in Q1 2022 total just over 650,000 units versus Q1 2021, prior to the chip shortage.  In that quarter last year, automakers racked up 732,000 truck sales.

    The F-Series holds the lead as they have for over 45 years, but the Ram trucks are closer than Ford would like, just 13,000 trucks behind the Blue Oval.  Silverado is in striking distance just 6,000 sales behind Ram.  As you’ll see below, Ford has been hardest hit by far due to the lack of chips.

    Congratulations to Nissan, the all-new Frontier has the highest percentage increase, but to be fair, sales of the old Frontier were dismal.

    Here are all truck sales through March of 2022 and how that compares to the same period in 2021:

     
    1. Ford F-Series 140,701    31%
