Competitive Sales Comparison

Despite the 31 percent decline in Ford F-Series sales (see running F-Series sales) during the first quarter of 2022, The Blue Oval’s full-size trucks range remained the best-selling in their segment. The Ram Pickup took second place with a 15 percent decrease in sales to 127,116 deliveries, followed by the GM’s Chevrolet Silverado (see running Silverado sales) which saw a four percent decrease to 121,107 units. The GMC Sierra (see running Sierra sales) took fourth as sales slid 10 percent to 56,617 units, followed by the Toyota Tundra with an 18 percent gain to 22,643 deliveries (the only model in the segment to post an uptick in sales volume) and the Nissan Titan with a 14 percent slide to 6,415 sales.

From a segment share standpoint, Ford F-Series accounted for a leading 30 percent share, a decrease of six percentage points from the year ago quarter. The Ram posted a one percentage point increase for a 27 percent segment share, while the Silverado gained four percentage points to 26 percent of the segment. The Silverado’s corporate cousin, the Sierra, posted a segment share of 12 percent, up one percentage point, while Tundra took 5 percent, up two percentage points, and Titan earned one percent share.

The full-size pickup truck segment decreased an average of 17 percent to 474,599 units during Q1 2022, meaning that the F-Series underperformed the segment average.

It’s worth noting that adding up Q1 2022 sales of GM’s two trucks – the Silverado and Sierra – results in 177,724 combined deliveries, which is 37,023 units more than the F-Series for a 38 percent combined segment share.

The Ford Authority Take

The decline in Q1 2022 Ford F-Series sales, which includes sales figures for the Ford F-150 and Ford Super Duty, should come as no surprise as a result of ongoing constraints at the supply chain level. These constrains include, but are not limited to, the ongoing microchip shortage, which is expected to continue for another few months. This has had a massive impact on automobile production during the last two years, leading to substantial production cuts, near record-low inventory, record-low incentives, and record-high new vehicle prices. In fact, FoMoCo has been forced to idle a number of its plants. As such, it makes sense for the segment to post a 16.5 percent contraction.

Even so, the F-Series continued to lead the segment during the quarter with a segment share that’s three percent higher than the runner-up.

Notably, the F-150 continues to be a fan favorite, having the highest market share of all U.S. vehicles currently in operation. The Super Duty has also earned its fair share of praise as the third most considered truck during the fourth quarter of 2021, while the F-250 won Vincentric’s 2022 Best CPO Value Award in the 3/4 ton truck segment. In addition, the 2022 Ford F-Series lineup earned a Kelley Blue Book 2022 Best Resale Value Award.
