The Chevrolet Silverado family of trucks comes in second with a total of 586,675 units sold in 2020. Heavy duty trucks pushed more units (14 percent increase) when compared to light-duty models, but overally, the series did better than in 2019.
3. Ram Pickups
Ram pickups also performed exceptionally well, pushing 563,676 units, down 11 percent from 2019 figures. The exceptional performance was partly buoyed by the introduction of a performance-focused TRX that is fitted with a Hellcat V8.
