Top-Selling Pickup Trucks by State

Top selling trucks by state graphic

Ever wonder which pickup truck is the top seller in your state? So has our team of data crunchers at That’s why they sent us some of their most up-to-date new-vehicle sales information (meaning collected data from Jan. 1, 2017, to Aug. 21, 2017, from the majority of U.S. dealerships) for top-selling pickups in each state. We should clarify that these are not necessarily the top-selling vehicles — although in some cases they are — but rather just a list of the top-selling pickups. (FYI: Our data showed that the No. 1-selling vehicle was a pickup truck in 26 states.)

Although this data is simply a ballpark estimation taken from our exclusive database, this should give us a rough idea of the top player in each state.

As you can see, the majority of the states in the country have the top-selling Ford F-150 in first place, while the Chevrolet Silverado 1500 is close behind with only four fewer states. The other two top sellers on our list of four include the GMC Sierra 1500 and the only heavy-duty pickup, the Ram 2500. Interestingly, as some might expect, there are a few states that don’t have a single pickup truck in their top 10 sellers; we’ve noted which states they are in the graphic.

For those Toyota fans out there, it should be noted that the Toyota Tacoma was on the top 10 best-selling vehicles list for 15 different states and in the top three for two; the Tundra only made it onto three of the top-10 lists and never onto a top-three list.
