The bitter back-and-forth between Chevy and Ram about which will play second fiddle to Ford’s pickup truck dominance continues through 2020’s third quarter. Both GM and Ram have released last quarter’s sales figures, and the Auburn Hills automaker has outperformed its Detroit rival by around 11,000 trucks. However, while Ram has clawed back some sales ground from Chevy, the Silverado still maintains a small lead for the year.
Ram’s third-quarter truck sales saw dealers move 156,157 light- and heavy-duty pickups. That’s down three percent compared to the same time last year, which is surprising as the coronavirus pandemic continues to upset the economy. Through September 2020, Ram has sold 402,410 Ram pickups, which is also down compared to 2019.
