Truck sales in Canada looked strong in the month of September. However, when you look YTD, sales are actually down so far this year.
The Ford F-Series led the pack. It was down for the month of September but it was up when you look YTD. It was followed by the Ram Pickup, which is having the best year of any pickup, seeing a more than 15 percent rise in sales.
There were about 8,300 more sales in the month of September than there was this month last year. The YTD numbers did not look quite as good. Sales were down about 2,800 units.
YTD, there are only four models that didn’t see sales decline. They are the Ford F-Series, Ram Pickup, Ford Ranger, and Jeep Gladiator. The Ranger and Gladiator are new pickups, too, so there are no previous data to compare them to. All other models actually saw sales decline.
Data will trickle in throughout the day with the numbers being finalized by EOD. GCBC is also happy to announce that we will be adding quarterly sales reports and comparisons in addition to monthly sales comparisons beginning this quarter. We will also be adding monthly sales tables and charts to the mix as well.
Note: FCA US LLC will end its practice of reporting U.S. and Canada sales on a monthly basis following June results. FCA US and FCA Canada will report monthly sales for May and June. The first quarterly report will occur on October 1, 2019, covering the months of July, August, and September.
