The 2015 Chevrolet Silverado High Country Edition.

The 2015 Ford F-Series continued to be the top-selling full-size pickup truck in America for the month of July, but the Chevrolet Silverado is catching up quick.

The Silverado is the most improved for both the month and the year to date, selling a whopping 33.9 percent more in July 2015 than in July 2014. For the year, the Silverado’s sales are up 17.5 percent.

The F-Series reported a modest gain after falling in June, selling 4.8 percent more than in July 2014. For the year, though, sales are down 1.3 percent.

The Silverado’s sister, the GMC Sierra, also had strong July sales, gaining 13.3 percent for the month and 9 percent for the year. When combined, the two GM twins actually outsold the Ford, with 76,188 sold compared to 66,288.

Ram trucks continue to sell at a solid pace, if well below the Big Two. Ram sales saw a modest 1 percent gain for the month for a 4 percent yearly gain.

July was a good month for full size truck sales, as all competitors saw a sales increase. The Toyota Tundra sold 1.9 percent more for July and is now up 4.7 percent for the year and the Nissan Titan’s sales were also up 5 percent for the month, but are still down 4.2 percent for the year. To put it into perspective, though, the GM twins sold nearly as much for the month of July as both Japanese competitors combined have for the entire year.
