ford vs chevy/gmc sales

When ford says the f-150 is the best selling truck ever does that mean just what it says? Does chevy/gmc sell more trucks? Do they say they are the best selling trucks because they separate the two(gmc/chevy) so it looks like they sell more. I am kind of disapointed. I am sooooo brand loyal to ford with everything drag racing, trucks, old cars you name it. GMC/Chevy are almost identical vehicles. So to me they have more sales. It actually makes me madd. But I really dont know. What do you guys think?

If GM considers them 2 different brands then they are ford sells more than chevy but not GMC plus Chevy even though they are the same truck.

Ford sells trucks under one name Ford. GM sells trucks under two names Chevy an GMC. Ford outsells just the Chevy brand most all the time an ocassionally both. Last year Ford outsold GM an Chevy by 50,000 units in trucks that is. F series 150,250,350 vs Silverado Sierra. This year GM an Chevy are outselling Ford by about 50,000 trucks but the gap has narrowed some in the last two months.. Theres a thread over on the new Ford buyers forum with the exact August numbers and YTD numbers. Ford outsold GM an Chevy combined several times in the ninties because Ford had the powerstroke diesel an GM had the 6.5 diesel which was problematic an lacking in power compared to the powerstroke Now GM has the duramax but ford still rules the diesel bisiness as it has since 1994 when the 7.3 powerstroke came out. In the truck world its still a blue oval vs bowtie battle when it comes to sales numbers. Dodge is still a distant third. Hope this answers some off your questions.
