The Chevrolet Silverado Is The Best-Selling Vehicle In These Four States7
By now, it’s common knowledge that the Ford F-Series is the best-selling vehicle in America, but the Chevrolet Silverado still manages to outsell its Ford-badged rival in a handful of states.
Edmunds recently published its Most Popular Cars in America list for 2020 which, unsurprisingly, has the Ford F-Series in the number one spot. The Chevrolet Silverado was close behind in second, though, and managed to outsell the F-Series in Minnesota, Idaho, Indiana and Kentucky.
This list is based on sales data from the 2020 model year, or more precisely, from October 2019 to October 2020. Ford managed to sell 787,422 examples of the F-Series throughout 2020, while General Motors moved 594,094 examples of the Chevrolet Silverado.
While the Ford F-Series outsells the Chevrolet Silverado nationwide, GM still sells more full-size pickup trucks than its Dearborn-based counterpart. It sold 253,016 examples of the GMC Sierra in the U.S. last year, so a total of 847,110 full-size GM pickup trucks were delivered between both nameplates. The GMC Sierra was the eighth best-selling vehicle in America last year.
Full-size pickup trucks remain the most popular vehicles in America by a wide margin. The third best-selling vehicle last year was the Ram Pickup, with sales totaling 563,676 units. This was actually down slightly from Ram’s impressive 2019 performance in which it managed to sell a whopping 633,694 examples of its full-size pickup and overtake the Chevrolet Silverado for the runner-up spot behind the F-Series. GM should be happy to have reclaimed the second spot in overall vehicle sales from Ram for 2020.
Production output of GM’s full-size pickup trucks was slightly hampered by the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020, so it will be interesting to see how the Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra fare throughout 2021 as GM continues to improve and streamline its mid-pandemic production and sales processes.

Interesting. I never thought to parse the numbers like that. I wonder why Chevy outsells in those States?
Would be great to see a gm commercial stating ” gm -the best selling full size trucks made in america “
I am Chevy enthusiast, I currently have a year 2018 Silverado with the 5.3v8.
However, I am disappointed that GM discontinued with v6 in the crew cab, as it is more fuel efficient. I once own a year 2014 crew cab v6 4.3 and was getting 24 miles to the gallon. My self and other Chevy lovers not towing anything, therefore we don’t need a 8cylinder, we just drive it for social purposes etc.
I hope GM will give customers like my self the option by including v6 in the 4×4 crew cab.
There is the 2.7 4 cyl tubo…
348 lb.-ft. torque
6,800 lbs. max. towing
2,260 lbs. max. payload
Up to 20 city/23 hwy MPG
Available on 2020 Chevy Silverado
V8 owners prefer the v8 but if you’re not hauling you might want to test drive this.
V8 owners that did all said it fell short of the v8 as it would but did say it’s a buy for the price…
I would rather stick with the 5.3 than a 4cyl. Why not v6 with turbo than go so low with the 4 cylinder.
Ford also have v6 with turbo.
The 4.3L with a single turbo would be kick ass. The 4.3L was swapped into a gn with a turbo making about 700 who with 7lbs of boost.
