Toyota Tacoma, Chevy Colorado, and Other Midsize Trucks Continue Huge Sales Gains

There seems to be no limit to how many more trucks Toyota Tacoma or Chevy Colorado (among others) can sell in a month. The Tacoma sold over 20,000 truck in March. The Colorado sold nearly 13,000 units, which represents an astounding 51.9% increase over March of last year.

The aging Nissan Frontier had similar success with nearly 9,000 trucks sold. GMC Canyon turned around recent sales declines with an improvement in March. The only midsize pickup truck that is struggling is the Honda Ridgeline.

The half-ton truck segment had a successful sales month in March.
