In the first half of 2018, sales in the US Small Pickup segment grew by almost 20%. The Toyota Tacoma became a locomotive of sales, which is much ahead of rivals.
There has been a considerable increase of consumer interest to the models of the Small Pickup class in the USA. In the first half of this year, the Americans bought more than 259,000 small pickup trucks, which is 19.9% more than in the same period of 2017, Carsalesbase.com reports.
As the North American market expects for arrival of two newcomers – the Ford Ranger and Jeep Gladiator, – the prospects for the Small Pickup segment can be considered very optimistic.
The best-in-this-class is the Toyota Tacoma (pictured above): more than 116,000 sales, plus a 22% increase of demand.
The Chevrolet Colorado is the second with almost 70,000 sold pickups. The growth rate in the 2nd quarter of the year was 45.9%, and this is a very encouraging trend.
The demand for the Nissan Frontier also increased, which took the third place in the ranking (42,000 units). The fourth was the GMC Canyon (slightly less than 17,000 units).
The only model in the TOP 5 to fall was the Honda Ridgeline. The sales declined by significant 19%, and 15,000 men became the owners of the pickup truck.
