This was just a classic beating
Sep 08 Sep 07 +/- CY 2008 CY 2007 +/-
F-Series 32,727 56,065 -41.6 392,698 537,211 -26.9
Silverado 50,428 52,480 -3.9 370,502 477,859 -22.5
Ram 20,812 30,100 -31.0 196,058 276,978 -29.0
Sierra 18,744 18,445 1.6 133,811 157,204 -14.9
Tundra 7,696 19,571 -59.0 115,026 144,480 -20.4
Titan 2,872 5,193 -44.7 29,900 50,959 -41.3
Mark LT 383 795 -51.8 3,659 6,653 -45.0
Chevy and GMC were helped big time by GM Employee pricing.
If Ford doesn't get their act together, the F-Series could fall to
second place for the first time in about 30 years.
Toyota... right truck, 3 years too late.

learn to spell and before you form an opinion, go find a tundra and put it "to work" on your farm and i guarantee you that you will be surprised. just because your a conservative farmer doesn't mean you HAVE to drive an american truck. the step that tundras had made in the past 4 years when it comes to size, power, and towing, has been bigger than fords step up in the past 10 years. be flexible and just because all the rednecks are so into american automobiles, doesn't mean you'll look weird driving a nice tundy around the farm.

I can't afford a new truck. Prices are way to high for any of them. I buy well used trucks and drive them up and down the road till they don't go anymore. I will continue to buy the 99 1/2 to 03 F350 SD 7.3 L till I can't find one anymore. As for nissan and Toyota I wouldn't buy one of those if I had the money and used a 1/2 ton. Sorry but I support my fellow American workers and American companies. I know Ford's sales aren't up like everyone elses but they also don't base thier company off of small little cheap cars. Thier company is built around trucks real trucks. The ones you see in farmers fields and on the road pulling trailers. If we as a country keep buying imports where will our kids work?

I would have kept buying American trucks but i switched to the tundra because it's more reliable. Tundras can do anything a F-150, a silverado, or a ram can do, except with more horsepower and torque. Tundras can tow 10,000 pounds like its nothing, and you can drop 1,600 pounds of anything in the bed and the truck will still have the get up and go like it does if it were dry.

No it's not a coincidence. Go to any dealership that sells trucks and there will be trucks in the service center.
Ford, chevy, dodge, Toyota. No truck has a 0% defect rate.
