“Retail sales of the Chevrolet Silverado are exceptionally strong, and when combined with record third-quarter retail sales of the GMC Sierra, we have the industry’s leading truck franchise,” said spokesman Tom Henderson. The battle of the pickups is underway, and the Chevrolet Silverado is amongst its contenders. On the list are Ford, Fiat Chrysler, and the Chevrolet Silverado.
The Ford F-Series has been a story lead the majority of the year holding on to second place in the truck wars, but with the third quarter in the books, Fiat Chrysler Automobiles has more to crow about. GM, however, is selling more trucks. That’s in part to the Sierra line, which was up solidly for the quarter.
Although Ram sales increased during the third quarter of 2019 from 14%, which was 142,044 to 161,635, it was the Silverado who saw a significant jump. The increase was 16% (percentage-wise, it might not seem like anything), but that increase was from 133,329 in sales to 155,482. Ford’s F- Series fell 6% while Fiat Chrysler and GM saw their sales rise.
“Whatever the outcome in any one month or quarter, based on what incentives and promotions are offered, the long-run trend is for Ram to permanently surpass Chevrolet into second place,” said auto adviser and market analyst Jon Gabrielsen.
GM and Fiat Chrysler Automobiles have released quarterly sales results. Something other car companies such as Acura, Hyundai, and Mitsubishi do as well. In the wake of the UAW strike against GM, the impact on the company is expected to halt the pickup truck sells.
But not to worry, GM is not giving up. Michelle Krebs, the executive analyst for Autotrader, believes that the fewer trucks being sold will affect the profits at GM in both the third and fourth quarters. Krebs believes it “since pickup trucks account for the bulk of income,” but she confidently acknowledged that “third-quarter sales results saw the limited impact from the strike because of the timing,” according to usatoday.com.
