It’s nothing new that the Ford F-150 remains the country’s top brand among new pickup truck sales. But the enduring vehicle is also the country’s top-selling used truck and top-selling used vehicle.

According to, the Boston-based analytics firm, the Ford F-150 is followed by the Chevrolet Silverado and Ram Pickup 1500, giving used pickups the top three sales places.

“The Ford F-150 has been America’s undisputed best-selling new car for over 40 years, and the popularity of pickup trucks help contribute to its high volume of sales,” said Executive Analyst Karl Brauer. “Used pickup truck sales remained strong and even grew in sales during the pandemic, while all other segments declined, as consumers needed them for work.”
