  • June 2014 Truck Sales – Ford F-Series Declines, GM Flat, Ram Gains

June 2014 Truck Sales – Ford F-Series Declines, GM Flat, Ram Gains

Tacoma, Tundra Tumble, Colorado, Canyon Get Zombie Sales

Jul 1, 2014
Out of the 11 models represented on this month's list, only two had up months, with the majority of truck models showing a decline for June 2014. The two gainers for June were Ram, which posted a healthy 12 percent year-over-year gain, and the Chevrolet Silverado, which posted a modest 0.6 percent gain. The Ford F-Series, although still comfortably in First Place in overall volume, saw an 11 percent year-over-year June decline.
Across the board, the import-brand models were down, with the Nissan Frontier having the most modest decline at 5.7 percent. Somewhat surprisingly, the Chevrolet Colorado and GMC Canyon got a few "zombie" sales after flatlining last month.

1) Ford F-Series - 60,560, Down 11 Percent
The F-Series has led the sales charts consistently over the last three decades, but that's not to say Ford's trucks don't sometimes have an off month. The F-Series has typically outsold the Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra combined, and that's still the case—although not by the usual margin. Maybe some buyers are holding out for the high-tech 2015 model.

2) Chevrolet Silverado - 43,519, Up 0.6 Percent
Sales of the Chevrolet Silverado have not been quite as meteoric as that of Ram, but they've been consistent. Compared to Ford's double-digit drop-off for June, the Silverado was up a smidgen for the month, and more than 10,000 units ahead of Ram, after a humbling Third Place finish in March.

3) Ram 1500/2500/3500 – 33,149, Up 12 Percent
Ram truck sales continue a torrid pace in June, being the only double-digit gainer for the month. The addition of the EcoDiesel and offering of the eight-speed automatic across the 1500 lineup is likely helping popularity.

4) GMC Sierra - 15,406, Down 7.0 Percent
The GMC Sierra saw a slight decline in June, down 7.0 percent. However, GMC has an unusually high sales mix of premium-trim models, which help the bottom line.

5) Toyota Tacoma – 12,173, Down 13.2 Percent
The current midsize sales leader saw a double-digit decline for June but still outsold the Nissan Frontier by more than a two-to-one margin. Expect things to get interesting once the 2015 Chevrolet Colorado and GMC Canyon hit the scene.

6) Toyota Tundra – 8.977, Down 8.0 Percent
The Tundra is still nowhere close to threatening the domestic sales hegemony but has a much stronger following than the current Nissan Titan, which is going on more than a decade without a significant redesign.

7) Nissan Frontier – 5,722, Down 5.7 Percent
The Frontier, which has enjoyed some strong months in 2014, took a bit of a downturn for June. Although Nissan has gone on record saying the Titan is the brand's top truck priority, the unveiling of a new global Navara model suggests a new Frontier may not be too far behind its big brother.

8) Honda Ridgeline – 1,309, Down 16.7 Percent
In its final model year, the Honda Ridgeline continues to have a small but devoted following of fans that appreciate its car-like handling and innovative packaging. The Ridgeline will be taking a sabbatical in 2015, to reappear in 2016 as a 2017 model.

9) Nissan Titan – 976, Down 24.9 Percent
The current Titan soldiers on until the all-new model comes, which is expected to be soon. Value-minded shoppers can probably find Titans for a steal, with generous incentives and dealers eager to move the slow-selling model off their lot.

10) Chevrolet Colorado – 51, Down 67.1 Percent
After zero sales last month, the Colorado shakes the richter scale a tad with 51 sales for June. Most likely a few fleet sales.

11) GMC Canyon – 3, Down 95.3 Percent
GMC sold three Canyons for June, keeping it off flatliner list for the month.
