Who Sells the Most Pick up Trucks in the US?

Pickup trucks make up about 15% of U.S. vehicle sales with Americans buying around a million each year. Who sells the most pickup trucks in America? There is a fierce battle going between the mainstream truck manufacturers in the United States. Ford, Chevrolet, GMC, Nissan, Toyota, and Ram all spending mind-boggling amounts of time, energy, money to update their trucks, vehicles, fleet, and advertise them in the best way possible.

First, let’s define the “pickup trucks” vehicle class. A pickup truck is any vehicle with an open cargo bed behind the passenger cabin and a vehicle that is meant for consumer use. This means that full-size SUVs, commercial vans, medium-duty commercial trucks are not included. We could include the vans and medium-duty trucks.

Who Sells the Most Pick up Truck in the US

Ford F-Series:

The Ford F-Series isn’t just the best-selling vehicle line in America, it's tops around the world.

A Brief History of Ford F-Series:

The popularity of the Ford F-series pickup is no fluke. Born more than a century ago, it earned its place in the American landscape by delivering rugged value and consistent innovation. Early on, it was its available flat head V-8; next was the twin-I-beam front suspension, and more recently the truck has adopted industry-first aluminum bodywork and embraced smaller, turbocharged engines. From the first Model TT chassis cab, which debuted in 1917, to today's leather-lined four-door luxury haulers, this is a brief history of the long-lived Ford F-series.

Most Iconic Ford F-Series model:

Ford F-Series (F-150)

Ford will offer the next-generation F-150 with no fewer than six powertrains—including a hybrid for the first time—plus three cab configurations and both long and short bed lengths. Need something to impress the in-laws? Upscale models offer more than just a touch of luxury. Towing something heavy? We expect some of these half-ton trucks will boast a maximum towing capacity of at least 13,000 pounds. And don't forget the bad-boy F-150 Raptor, Ford's performance powerhouse, which will arrive sometime after the standard truck.

Recent Trends in Ford F-Series (F-150)

Now the 2021 model is taking things a step further, with the F-150 being available with a hybrid powertrain for the first time. Playing off the EcoBoost name, the new hybrid model is named PowerBoost and combines the 3.5 liter EcoBoost engine (mated to a 10-speed automatic transmission) with a 47 horsepower (35 kilowatts) electric motor, and a 1.5 kW-hr lithium-ion battery. The new hybrid model is capable of going an estimated 1,100 kilometres on one tank of fuel and can tow at least 12,000 pounds (when properly equipped). The hybrid model is available on all trims, XL to Limited. Being an icon of US car manufacturing, the F-150 is one of Ford’s most profitable vehicles, providing the financial firepower for other projects at the company, such as autonomous vehicle efforts like Argo AI.
