Relative set back for trucks this year in the US: the Ford F-Series is the best-selling vehicle in the country for the 25th year in a row in spite of a 12% drop to 796,039 sales, peaking at 84,168 in March. The Chevrolet Silverado was relaunched this year but fell 10% to 636,069 units, peaking at 66,583 sales in July when it was only 2,399 units below the F-Series…
