    Silverado + Sierra = 63,488

    Also - 

    Canyon + Colorado = 13,332

    Meaning GM sold 76,820 trucks last month

    ...and they seem to be selling to very happy customers.  Every owner I talk to here in Ohio just freaking loves them.

    Not bad. It took 6 different truck lines ( 2x Sliverado - light duty/heavy duty, 2x Sierra - light/hd, Colorado, and Canyon ) to beat 2 F Series truck lines - light/SD -  by 8k units.

    Erm... no. The difference between the Silverado and Sierra is no different than the difference between an F-150 XL and a Lariat and a Kind Ranch and a Raptor and Super Duty.  It's just a different grille/headlights/hood in the half ton GMs and Ford does the same thing just without swapping out headlights.  Which badge is on the GM trucks is largely immaterial.

    Even if you wanted leave out the GM Mid-sizers (which I'm sure you do since Ford has a big fat zero in that sales column right now), the two companies are pretty close.. .GM isn't behind Ram as you tried to imply with your original post and I have since corrected.

    When you look at the YTD numbers for half-tons and 3/4 tons at Ford and GM,  you get Ford at 595,656 and GM at 589,996.... or a difference of only 5,660 units... GM is less than 1% behind for the year to date.   When you include the mid-sizers, GM's number rises to 697,249 while Ford remains at 595,656... meaning GM sold 100,000+ more trucks than Ford so far for the year.

    I went yesterday to test drive a GMC Silverado...To my surprise, none on the lots. Then looked for a Chevy Sierra...nothing again, in any trim. Big sellers these truck are < sarcasm >

    And I never tried to imply GM is behind Ram. I posted the Top 3 for the month of September - F Series, Ram, Silverado.

    Just like you can't find a GMC 1500 Silverado LS LTZ 5.3L EcoTec 4.3L Allison Duramax..

    Only ones who add GMC/Chevy together are the Fan Boys. The Company doesn't even use that straw man mathematics argument

    Would you call Truth About Cars a fanboy?  The had the GM death clock. http://www.thetruthaboutcars.com/2015/10/gm-sold-124000-pickup-trucks-ford-first-three-quarters-2015/

    TruckYeah on Jalopnick raise the same issue I did. - http://truckyeah.jalopnik.com/why-ford-gm-and-rams-truck-sales-numbers-are-all-kind-1642486291

    FastLaneTrucks seems to agree with me. http://www.tfltruck.com/2014/10/chevy-and-gmc-sell-more-trucks-than-f-series-in-september-sales/

    Does GM combine sales in their monthly PR Releases?

    No. 

     

     

     

    In the spreadsheet? No they are broken down by brand.  But they will say stuff like "GM trucks posted an xx% sales increase, beating industry average." or some such thing.  They do that fairly frequently.

    And GM's truck sales are higher than Ford's. 

    Who said the GM combined sales weren't?

    One would hope they are. Two divisions/brands of which each have two segments ( full and mid size )

    Careful throwing around the absolutes... Brand differences are important. GMC can charge $65k for a base Yukon Denali... That's $2k more than a base Navigator.  It's unlikely GM would be able to pull that off if the Denali was "just" a Chevy. 

    Denali trim alone out sells the entire Lincoln brand, so I think GM has a pretty good profit motive there.

      The rivalry of the Chevrolet Camaro and Ford Mustang has been going for ages in the U.S. But now this fight has expanded into China.
      Automotive News reports that a growing group of Chinese buyers are being drawn towards to these models as the exude the no-apologies Americana attitude.
      "We're seeing the beginning of a muscle car culture here. Something that is uniquely American appeals to the Chinese consumer. The image that it relays to the automotive public is very positive," said James Chao, a China market auto analyst with IHS Markit.
      Sales of both models are small with Chevrolet only moving 2,000 Camaros since its launch 2011. Ford is doing slightly better with 6,200 Mustangs sold since its launch in 2015. In the first quarter, Mustang sales saw a 90 percent increase to 963 vehicles. Part of the reason for the slow sales comes down to the price. The Camaro starts about 399,900 yuan (about $58,000) - more than double of the base price of $26,900 in the U.S. The Mustang isn't that far behind, costing about $15 dollars less. Prices are increased due to a 25 percent import tariff on U.S. made vehicles, homologation and shipping fees, and Chinese buyers trending to splurge on higher-time models.
      But despite the low sales, the Camaro and Mustang are bringing buyers to dealers. These models act as eye candy to help draw shoppers into showrooms with the hope they'll purchase a vehicle, where it be the eye candy or something a little less exciting.

      If the Volkswagen diesel emission scandal hasn't swayed you from wanting one, then you'll be happy to hear Volkswagen will once again be able to sell brand-new 2015 model year TDI models. Green Car Reports says near 11,000 TDI models will soon be back up for sale once they are updated with new software, making them legal.
      Volkswagen does caution those interested in picking up a new TDI to call their nearest dealership to see if they have any in stock.
      But that's not all. Volkswagen is offering some massive discounts on these models. CarsDirect reports that Volkswagen is offering 0% APR for up to 72 months and $5,000 cash bonus if you decide to buy. Interested in leasing one? Volkswagen will offer a cash bonus of $8,500. 
      There are a couple of caveats to this offer. First, you need to have an excellent credit history to qualify for either offer. Second is that Volkswagen isn't advertising this offer.
      "We will not be advertising the available incentives from our financing arm as they [sic] vehicle availability will vary per dealership," said Volkswagen spokeswoman Jeannine Ginivan.

      The new Volkswagen Tiguan looks to solve some of the pressing issues of the current model such as its size that puts it between subcompact and compact crossovers. But that doesn't mean the current Tiguan is leaving anytime soon.
      Hendrik Muth, VW’s senior vice president for product marketing tells Car and Driver that the current Tiguan will stick around for 2018 and 2019, wearing the Tiguan Limited nameplate. Muth explained this model will be aimed at more budget-minded buyers and those who don't want the bigger footprint of the new Tiguan. Another reason mentioned in Car and Driver's story is the current Tiguan saw its best sales in 2015 and 2016.
      One item that could put some people off from buying the Tiguan Limited is will not get the  6-year/72,000-mile warranty announced for the 2018 Atlas and Tiguan crossovers. Expect pricing to be announced sometime in the fall.
