Year-over-year sales figures took a big hit at Ford and GM in the first month of 2014...

Was it due to the dismal weather in January, the slow economic recovery, a combination of both, or is something else to blame?

Ram on the other hand, continues to run full steam ahead, selling nearly 4,600 more trucks than it did last January.

According to Pickuptrucks.com, from which we obtained the above chart, January is typically the slowest month of the year in terms of sales. We'll see if that holds true as more months rack up in 2014. But, is this a slow month for Ram? If so, it may very well be a legitimate threat to replace Chevy at some point in the near future...
