Fun fact: the best two selling vehicles in America for 2010 are both pickup trucks, with the diverse Ford F-Series selling 528,349 units, and the Chevrolet Silverado at a distant second with 370,135. However, the Chevy did manage to outsell the Toyota Camry (327,804), which has been America’s favorite sedan for several years now. Unfortunately, no other GM vehicle made the top 10.
As far as the constant struggle between Ford and GM trucks go, the final tally for all GM trucks (GMC Sierra + Chevy Avalanche + Silverado) is 520,444 according to Pickuptrucks.com (where’s the Escalade EXT, guys?). Any way you slice it, GM still took second.
Yes, Ford fans do like to roll their eyes when General Motors combines the sales of all their full-sized trucks under different brands — but it should be noted that Ford has five distinct variants of its F-150 alone (Raptor, Platinum, Harley Davidson, Lariat and King Ranch). As far as we’re concerned, Ford fans have no room to talk and GM fans can still take pride in that their favorite automaker currently makes the best 3/4-ton and full ton pickups on the road.
