5. Toyota Tacoma: 198,124

The Toyota Tacoma is highest selling foreign pickup on the list. It is also the highest selling mid-size pickup. While mid-size pickup sales pale in comparison to full-size and heavy-duty pickups, it’s a growing market.


Still, the Tacoma sold nearly 400,000 fewer units than the Chevrolet Silverado alone. But it’s gaining on the GMC Sierra.

4. GMC Sierra: 217,943

You’d be hard pressed finding two vehicles on the street as similar as the GMC Sierra and Chevrolet Silverado. They share platforms and capabilities and then some. While the Silverado is often branded as the more value-oriented model compared to the Sierra, both bottom and top end prices for each truck are nearly identical.

However, what they don’t share are sales numbers. The Silverado nearly triples Sierra sales. In 2017 Sierra sales slipped, although slightly. GMC Sierra sales were down 1.7 percent last year.

3. Ram Pickups: 500,723

Ram pickup trucks are the first of the top three best selling trucks in 2017. The sales number includes the Ram 1500, 2500 and 3500 models.


Ram pickup sales have risen steadily since the fourth generation came out in 2009. But a 2 percent jump in sales from 2016 to 2017 may indicate the pickup is getting a little long in the tooth.

Just like the Silverado, Fiat Chrysler says it will unveil an all-new Ram 1500 pickup this year.
