AThe 2019 Ram 1500 was completely redesigned for the new model year, and we’re excited to offer it here at Weimer CDJR. After taking driver feedback into account and creating a more functional, capable pickup truck, the all-new Ram 1500 did something no Ram has done before — it surpassed one of its rivals in sales numbers.
For a long time, there has been a clear “big three” in the pickup truck industry — the Ford F-150, the Chevrolet Silverado 1500, and the Ram 1500, in that order. For the first time ever, in the initial sales quarter of 2019, the Ram 1500 knocked the Silverado out of the No. 2 spot. Ram has been gaining ground for a while now — Silverado sales stayed about the same last year, while Ram’s truck sales went up 7 percent to 537,000 units sold.
If you include all the sales numbers under the General Motors umbrella, GM still surpasses Ram in overall truck sales due to the boost from both the Silverado and the Sierra family of trucks. Plus, if the new Ram 1500 has its eyes on the throne, it will have to surpass Ford’s massive sales number of 900,000 F-150 trucks sold last year.
However, if trends continue the way they’re going, with the all-new Ram 1500 continuing to climb the charts while rivals stay around the same, Ford may have to rethink its outlook.
