Yes, Ford sells 2.5x more F-series trucks than Toyota sells Tacomas. Not my website so not sure why they weren't included in the first chart. Keep scrolling down and you'll find RAM trucks. Ford must not be listing model types because F-150 isn't found, only F-series on entire page. Tundra sales adds another 50K so actually F-series only sells 1.95x more than Toyota. Numbers can be manipulated all over the place so my takeaway is while Ford sells the most trucks, Toyota isn't a bit player.Ford F-series production has been hit pretty heavily by the semiconductor shortage AFAIK. Still, 414k vs 162k is a significant difference, I know it encompasses all F-series truck sales but the F-150 makes up the lion's share. I'm also not seeing any Chevy or RAM trucks in that list so it's definitely not comprehensive.
As for the semiconductor shortage, Toyota would have been hit hard as well. Appears only Apple and Tesla figured out a way to keep getting them.
