Toyota barely edges Dodge

For the first time ever, pickup trucks made by Toyota have outsold those manufactured by Chrysler’s Dodge division. In 2008, Dodge sold 275,884 trucks, compared to 281,904 for Toyota. This gives Toyota third position, behind Ford and GM, according to data released by research firm AutoPacific.

Put another way, Dodge commanded a 13.8 percent slice of the 2,003,294-unit pickup market, while Toyota had a 14.1 percent market share. As you can see, the difference is subtle — but it’s an important symbolic victory for Toyota, which had a 5 percent pickup truck market share just 10 years ago.

Toyota’s strength remains in the mid-size segment, where its Tacoma commands a 36.8 percent share with 144,655 units, compared to GM’s 17.8 percent, Ford’s 16.8 percent, and Dodge’s 6.6 percent share. While sales of all mid-size pickups declined, Toyota’s declined the least.

In the full-size space, GM is king with a 41.8 percent market share. Ford trails GM with a 32.3 percent slice of the pie, while Dodge commands just half that figure with 15.3 percent of the market. Toyota holds a distant 8.5 percent share of the full-size market.

The devil is in the details, which this article ignores.

The Tundra is basically a failed entry, and a lousy one at that.

Very said indeed, but then it was the last year of the Ram. The new one is far superior to that turd in every way, so hopefully it will sell better.

The article doesn't say Tundra outsold the Ram in 2008, it says Toyota outsold Dodge, where Toyota mostly sold Tacomas, not Tundras. Plus Dodge had a bad year, with Dakota sales down and Ram buyers waiting for 2009's new model.

Granted, it still sucks.

It says the complete opposite:

"In the full-size space, GM is king with a 41.8 percent market share. Ford trails GM with a 32.3 percent slice of the pie, while Dodge commands just half that figure with 15.3 percent of the market. Toyota holds a distant 8.5 percent share of the full-size market."

OHHH TEH NOOOZZZZZ

The sky is falling, the sky is falling!!!

Even in the face of the Tundra being an epic flop, the media is still lobbying hard for it's success. (Of course, at the expense of the WEAKEST domestic nameplate)

(Dodge is all but dead, remember? The media certainly wants you to remember that!)
