First place went to GM’s Chevrolet Silverado (see running Silverado sales) which saw sales increase nearly 35 percent to 164,731 units for a 28 percent segment share, up 4 percentage points year-over-year. The Ram Pickup took second place with a nearly 40 percent increase in sales volume for a segment share increase of 4 percent compared to the year-ago quarter. Meanwhile, the F-Series still accounted for a 26 percent share of the segment, 10 percent lower than the share it held in the year-ago quarter. Fourth place went to The General’s GMC Sierra (see GMC Sierra sales), which saw sales rise over 40 percent to 75,495 units for a 13 percent share.

Toyota Tundra placed fifth, with sales down over 9 percent to 24,731 units for a 4 percent segment share. Rounding out the segment was the Nissan Titan, with sales increasing nearly 60 percent to 10,313 units for a 2 percent share.

The full-size pickup truck segment expanded an average of 18 percent to 597,737 units during Q2 2021, meaning that Ford F-Series sales grew faster than the segment average.

It’s also worth noting that adding up Q2 2021 sales of GM’s two trucks – the Silverado and Sierra – results in 240,226 combined deliveries and a 41 percent share. That’s nearly 82,000 units or 15 percentage points more than the F-Series.

Below, we are also providing Honda Ridgeline sales for informational purposes, since the model straddles the midsize and full-size pickup truck segments.

The Ford Authority Take

The drop in Ford F-Series sales is certainly deflating following the momentum the Super Duty and all-new F-150 have built up since the second quarter of 2020. The decline in volume during Q2 2021 is the direct result of far-from-optimal supply of the F-150 and Super Duty at dealers as a result of the ongoing microchip shortage. That has caused the popular F-Series to give up its usual first-place position to the Chevy Silverado and also fall behind the Ram Pickup.

Notably, the all-new, 14th-generation Ford F-150 launched earlier this year. The vehicle was overhauled from bow to stern for the 2021 model year, giving The Blue Oval a significantly more modern and competitive offering in the segment. Production of the 2021 F-150 began at the Dearborn Truck plant on September 17th, 2020, and the 2021 F-150 Raptor began arriving at dealers in the beginning of August 2021.

Frankie's first favorite car was a 1968 Ford Mustang, and he's had a strong appreciation for the nameplate ever since. Later in his youth he became infatuated with Eleanor, thanks to Nicholas Cage's stellar performance. Frank's a real jokester, too.
