Ram Barely Edges Out The Silverado...

Inventory shortages and production delays have hit automakers hard during the third quarter of this year. We are still waiting for Ford to report their sales numbers but let’s take an early look at how the full-sized truck sales war is shaping up.

RAM sold 121,074 trucks in the U.S market during the third quarter, down 22% compared to the third quarter of 2020. The Chevrolet Silverado trailed RAM by fewer than 1000 units with the lowest year-over-year decline during Q3 with 120,856 trucks finding new homes, down 17% for the three-month period between July and October.
