    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.

      Automakers for the most part were hurting in sales during the second quarter. The COVID-19 pandemic and the economy coming to a screeching halt for a brief time caused new car sales to drop by a third according to Automotive News. But there is a slim silver lining to this, full-size pickups have moved into being the best-selling segment of vehicles.
      According to data from Automotive News, one out of four vehicles sold between April and June was a pickup truck. This helped put them ahead of compact crossovers, which have held the top spot for some time. The reason is that trucks didn't take as big of a hit due to 0 percent financing offers from automakers to help bring in buyers. A large number of dealers said they sold the majority of trucks sitting on their lots.
      Mark LaNeve, Ford's vice president of U.S. marketing, sales and service provides another reason why trucks didn't fall off a cliff. Speaking to AN, he said that people need trucks for work and "affluent consumers who often buy such vehicles have been less affected by the pandemic."
      Trucks still took quite the hit in the quarter,

      We clearly have European, Asian and Americas auto fans. I feel this is a good place to discuss the sales of segments, models, etc. here. I have pulled the latest Statista data that can be gotten for free to show here and discuss.
      As such, there is clearly a leadership perceived image that BMW and Mercedes-Benz have carried the last few years. Yet with that, you look at over all sales and both these companies have flipped and flopped leadership of the year in specific luxury segments but lack over all auto sales in the US.
      Based on the reports that @Drew Dowdell posted in January 2020 on 2019 auto sales:
      Ford - 2,422,698 GM - 2,887,046 FCA - 2,203,663 Tesla - 367,500 Audi - 224,111 BMW - 360,918 Genesis - 21,233 Honda - 1,608,170 Hyundai - 688,771 Infiniti - 117,708 Jaguar Land Rover - 125,787 Kia - 615,338 Mazda - 278,552 Mercedes-Benz - 357,729 Mitsubishi - 121,046 Nissan - 1,227,973 Porsche - 61,568 Subaru - 700,117 Toyota - 2,383,349 Volkswagen - 363,322 Volvo - 108,234 2019 Auto Sales

    • You listed 'XTS' twice, so your list would be '6'. The ATS and CTS are still right there in the catalog, they just have new generations with altered names, so your list drops to '4'. SRX was replaced with a new generation product with an altered name... so your list drops to '3'. Now add back in the brand new models XT4 and XT6. That's a net cut of ONE. Don't you need to be decent at math to work in a loan department? Those would be "failures" by your definition. You mean one of the most brutal & acclaimed performance sports sedans of all time? The one that burst into the German segment, up-ended their comfort levels and stole their market share? That 'strategy'?
    • Cadillac tried that strategy 15 years ago and it failed and they keep going for it and kept failing.  I want a Nurburgring carving auto, but most people don't buy cars like that.  And Porsche, BMW and Mercedes already have that market covered.  Cadillac needs to forge a new path.  Cadillac spent 15 years trying to be German, failed at it, time to try being American.  And interestingly enough the only successful product they made in the past 15 years is the most American and most like an old school Cadillac. With an aging population (and an overweight America) I think cars/SUVs that are easy to get in and out of (proper ride height) that are roomy and glide over bumps in our deteriorating roads and have good torque for smooth acceleration would do well.  EV's give you torque, roomy and quiet interior, so going al EV gets them half way there, if they can put together the other half and get the marketing.   Because not only has it been a long time since I rock and rolled, it has been a long time since Cadillac made a good ad.
