    May pickup sales are in and the Ford F-150, Chevrolet Silverado and Dodge Ram pickups, rank as the top three. The American Big-Three top the sales charts in May 2012, with Toyota coming in fifth place. Despite the good news that truck sales are up and still strong, Ford, GM and Dodge sales numbers last month, are well above sales of imports. In Year-To-Date sales figures, Ford’s F-series takes the led wtih 246,116 making it a 14.8 percent increase over last year’s YTD sales numbers. The Chevrolet Silverado had 160,942 sales in May, which is a 7.1 percent increase over it’s 2011 YTD sales figures. Coming in third is the Dodge Ram pickups which netted 114,630 sales, a 26.6 percent increase over last year’s YTD figures. The GMC Sierra sold 60,466 units, followed by the Toyota Tacoma with 55,289 units. While the Tacoma comes in fifth for the month of May, the truck managed to increase it’s sales 23.5 percent over 2011 YTD figures. The Nissan Frontier gained a 24.9 percent increase over last year’s YTD numbers by selling 23,734 units in May. The Ford ranger follows up with 17,526 in sales which dropped 25.6 percent.

    While overall numbers don't show it the percentages say that Dodge won for the Month of May. 26.6 increase that is one big jump. Almost double ford and over three times Chevrolet.

    interesting, combined the silverado and sierra are right there with the f-150. when the avalanche is retired, some of those sales will go to new GMs. be interesting to see if ford holds the title for most selling truck.

    Ford sells so many low end work trucks to the government that I am certain they will hold total numbers. Dodge I believe will continue to hold percentages as they are beginning to make a name for themselves as the low priced better equipped models. I would be interested to see how much of Dodges increase is the Cummins equipped models.
    Equally I would like to see the numbers for all diesel sales yearly and monthly
