For years we have been seeing the increase in pickup trucks sales and in the past couple, sales have surpassed those of cars, making trucks more popular than cars.

Among the top ten vehicles sold last month, you will find the Chevy Silverado in second place, just behind the Ford F-150, and these two are making quite the impact,

Despite being down 15% in year-to-date sales, the Silverado is still selling better than such cars as the Nissan Altima and Toyota Camry. Being a top-selling vehicle for its class while being down in comparison to last year, certainly shows just how well trucks are performing against cars.

In 1994 cars were selling at 59.7% of the market with pickups at 40.3%. Well it has been 20 years since then, and oh how it has changed. Pickups are now at 52.6% of sales while cars are at 47.4%, according to WardsAuto, reported by the Detroit Free Press.

The 2014 Chevrolet Silverado and the 2014 Ford F-150 are just two examples in a statistical pool of what is making trucks more popular than cars in the current market. Stop by Pfeiffer Plainfield Used Cars today to see just what all the fuss is about, and in the end you may decide to increase pickup sales even more.
