Top 10 Best-Selling Trucks In Canada – October 2011


2012 Honda Ridgeline Sport Black

Tenth on Canada’s October 2011 list of best-selling trucks is the Honda Ridgeline. Yes, that Honda, the funny-looking one we all secretly love deep down in our import truck-loving hearts, even if we do wish for more power, more outright capability, and a significantly lower price tag. 

In September, Ridgeline sales slid 66%. In August and July, Ridgeline sales fell 62%. Back in June, Ridgeline sales were down 56%. But in October? Ridgeline sales last month were off October 2010’s pace by “just” 28%. 

Thanks to the Chevrolet Colorado’s plunge from 282 sales to 185 and the Nissan Frontier’s drop from 258 sales to 167, the slow-selling Ridgeline was able to crack Canada’s list of ten best-selling trucks. 

Ford sold 32 F-Series pickups for every Ridgeline Honda sold in October 2011.

It’s not just the Ridgeline that’s embarrassed by the F-Series’ domination. Ford sold more copies of Canada’s favourite truck in October than Toyota has sold Tacomas so far this year. And the Tacoma is the country’s sixth-best-selling pickup truck. Five spots behind the F-Series apparently equals 75,240 sales behind the F-Series. 

If your calculator isn’t close at hand, yes, you guessed right: the GM twins – GMC’s Sierra and Chevy’s Silverado – absolutely crushed the Ford F-Series in October. It was a victory with 1494 units to spare. There’s a much nastier beating goin’ on, however, and evidence can be found in Ford’s year-to-date lead: 9644 sales. Details on October’s 10 best-selling trucks in Canada are in the table below.
