It’s no secret that the Ford F-150 is the best-selling truck in the United States—heck, the best-selling vehicle in the United States. GM, however, managed to give the Blue Oval a run for its money in August, with the Ford F-150 outsold by GM’s combined truck lineup (the Silverado and the Sierra).

True, the Silverado and the Sierra come from two different truck lines and aren’t technically the same vehicle. But they are both manufactured by General Motors and are very similar, so similar that you can bet, were there no GMC Sierra, would-be Sierra drivers would opt for the Chevy Silverado in its place.

Last month, General Motors managed to sell a total of 69,048 combined units of the Chevy Silverado and GMC Sierra. Specifically, Chevy sold 49,201 Silverados and GMC moved 19,847 Sierras. Overall, this marked a 12.05 percent increase over August of last year.

To be fair, the Ford F-150 was very close to GM’s total numbers, but still couldn’t quite catch the General’s trucks. In total, Ford moved 68,109 units, down 4.23 percent from last year.

Other truck competitors included Ram, with 43,775 units, and Toyota, with 11,834 units.
