Should I move this post to "At the Cookout" forum ??

Nah, but I did just notice that is in the towing forum. Since this has developed into a truck bashing thread, I am going to move it to "Off Topic".

May 2012 truck sales:

  2. Silverado -160,942
  3. Ram -114,630
  4. Sierra - 60,466
  5. Tacoma - 55,289
  6. Tundra - 36,418
  7. Frontier - 23,734
  8. Ranger -17,526
  9. Colorado -17,333
  10. Avalanche - 9,283
  11. Titan - 8,347
  12. Ridgeline - 6,084
  13. Canyon - 4,761
  14. Equator - 743
  15. Dakota - 441
Even GM owner's normal response "Well, if you add together the Silverado and Sierra's sales....." is blown out of the water.
Is that including fleet sales? Ford does a ton of business on fleet sales, so that shouldn't add in to consumer purchases. But they generally don't bother separating the two.

Also, they sell tons of VW Golfs, but only a few Porche 911's in comparison. Is the Golf better than the 911? I don't put stock in sales numbers. It just means one salesman is better than the other...

Some folks have to find justification for bad decisions.

I love how us Ford men/ladies are sitting back, taking the high road, letting you boys/girls have your fun! We aren't concerned, and don't have to knock the other rides to make ours look better.

Yea, right, cause the high road is paved and not hard on your vehicles.
