Truck sales are booming

2014-F150-Tremor

With the rebound in the construction industry, we’re starting to see truck sales surge around the country. Ford continues to dominate with the F-150 with sales increasing 31 percent in May, while other brands like Chevy are reporting increased sales as well.

We can expect Ford to continue its sales dominance with products like the 2014 Ford F-150 Tremor coming out this fall.

At first, you might just discount the 2014 Ford F-150 Tremor as another F-150 trim level offered by Ford. But look a little closer, and you’ll see that there’s more than meets the eye!

The 2014 Ford F-150 Tremor is the first-ever EcoBoost-powered sport truck that addresses the needs of street truck enthusiasts looking for high-performance V8 power with V6 fuel economy.

With both power and fuel economy as selling points the new Tremor should help Ford continue to push sales in this hot truck segment.

  

Chevy steadily growing sales around the world in 2011

You might not think it was possible this soon but Chevy is on pace for an all time sales record in 2011. That is a great sign for the global recovery and an even better sign that GM is on it’s way back as well. If the economy can continue to grow it will be interesting to see how high GM and Chevy in particular can go in regards to U.S. and Global sales!

From the Detroit Bureau:

With its 100th birthday barely fading in the rearview mirror, Chevrolet is on pace to set an all-time global sale record in 2011, having sold 4.8 million units through the end of November and with December off to a strong start.

Meanwhile, Chevrolet’s global market share has increased by nearly one half of a point this year, Russ Clark, Chevrolet’s marketing manager for midsized and performance cars, told TheDetroitBureau.com, while suggesting General Motors’ largest marque is steadily advancing towards its goal of becoming a truly global brand.

Sixty percent of all Chevrolets are now sold outside the United States, which had been the bowtie brand’s primary hunting ground for most of the past century, according to statistics cited by Clark during a conversation about Chevrolet’s business plans.
