Annually - and collectively - General Motors [Silverado, Canyon, Escalade, Sierra, Avalanch, Colorado] sells more trucks than Ford.

Ford have been riding the "Best Selling Truck" train for almost 32 years now..... and the gullible public believe it.

Belows link for 2011 and 2012 total Full-Size Pickup Sales shows GM outsells Ford.

You can view the itemized, month-by-month list HERE
When you compare just full size trucks, GM does not outsell Ford. You have to combine 3 brands and 5 models of truck to surpass Ford's 2. Sorry, but thats Apples and Oranges.

I guarantee Ford and Chevy both are paying attention. They pay attention when any company starts creeping in on their sales. If they didn't pay attention their products would become dated. Aside from that I have noticed a much increased presence of Dodge in the KC area; both older gen 2 and up.

Oh and just to throw another one out there. As most of you know the Kansas City Ford plant is one of the F-150 plants and still Ram is moving in hard.

And just because... I will add a couple more cents to the pot. I own a Ram even though I get the supplier discount for Ford vehicles.

Good for you CJ.2007 Ram. My son is a GM Master Mechanic and his girlfriend is a GM Service Advisor but I am still loyal to RAM!!! I could get a pretty good GM purchase discount and service discounts but my Chrysler Dealership treats me well and gives me a good service discount for being a loyal customer over the years.

I have always had really good luck with my Dodge products. They have always performed well and other than your normal mechanical issues, parts wearing out over time, I haven't had any real major issues. Granted I am not one that believes one certain brand is immune from problems because they all have their problems, but I have just had really good luck with my Dodge cars and trucks.

Lots of Fords in my area, although lately I've been seeing a lot of Tundras too. They must be on sale or something.....

Dodge Ram is 2nd best selling truck in Canada. Silverado doesn't sell well up here. GMC Sierra is 3rd. Ram outsells Silverado and Sierra combined

Sales of Ford pickups were 59,030 in April. RAM sold 31,409. Both were up considerably over the previous years. So like said before RAM has a long way to go to catch Ford.

That is still a lot of trucks. No wonder it takes a relatively long time when ordering one!
