2011 Ford F-150 – Click above for high-res image gallery

Ford has just finished off one heck of a 2010 here in the States, with big sales increases and improved profitability. The same can apparently be said north of the border, as the Toronto Star notes that Big Blue has managed a 19 percent sales increase compared to 2009. Perhaps more impressive is the probability that Ford even trumped General Motors in Canadian sales for the first time in more than half a century. According to the report, Ford of Canada tallied 267,974 sales for the year, and while GM still hasn't posted its final sales for the year, the Toronto Star claims that analysts consider Ford's sales lead to be nearly "insurmountable."

Ford's big sales year in Canada was lead by the continued success of the F-Series pickup range. Ford's top truck managed 97,913 sales for the year, the most by any individual vehicle in the history of Canadian auto sales. the F-Series has been Canada's best-selling pickup for 45 years. But while Ford has captured the top spot in Canada, The General still reigns supreme here in the U.S., with a 2010 sales lead of 280,000 units.

      So Ford outsold all GM's combined brands? I'm I right?

      @Elias C: Uh, the 2010 Tundra has 6 recalls. 3 are for labels. 1 only involves only 2 units and the last 2 involves the pedals for unintended acceleration. The F150 has no recalls, but it's the primary model/series that gave Ford way more unintended acceleration complaints than Toyota before the media bandwagon. The only difference was that Ford wasn't forced to recall.

      So really, they are equal in that respect.

      And to think they did it without the governments help!

      Ford is coming back so much that they know their car's aren't going to last long. They even advertise it now. They tell you the car will have more resale value in 3 year's than it's nearest competition. If their car is so much better than all other's why would a customer want to sell it in 3 year's? SMART advertising Ford!!

      The Tundra was such a flop.

      lay off the scotch and quaaludes. Canadians need trucks for work, not for play.

      Ah, the Tundra. A marvelous piece of intoxicated engineering. The truck that's changing it all. The truck that within 5 years will dethrone the f-150. The truck that will reach 200K per year and within 5 years will double production. The truck that will show Americans how to build a real truck. Someone please give me a reason why I should buy a Chevy, GMC, Ford or Ram when the Tundra shows the true meaning of "Toyota quality".
      Let me see if I can answer that myself. Let's see.
      Tailgates that can't hold a lawn mower without cracking or
      fall off the truck,
      frames rotting away faster than a pound of raw hamburger left in the desert,
      bed bounces like a pissed off bronco bull,
      dash squeaks like two dogs stuck together,
      radio quits working like a city worker on break,
      the front end shimmies like a drugged out disco dancer,
      the cracking output shaft is softer that a roll of charmin,
      the driveshaft keeps it's balance like MSNBC,
      paint scratches like an etch-a-sketch on steroids,
      the camshaft snaps faster than Elvis could snap his fingers,
      piston slap that sounds like two girls in a slap fest at a biker bar,
      brake pads that last about as long as an M&M melts in your mouth,
      resale value about as good as a Sebring,
      it's the punchline of jokes at construction sites,
      clunking transmissions prone to more failures than Elizabeth Taylors marraiges,
      ball joints popping faster than a hot kettle of Orville Redenbachers popcorn,
      accelerates on it's own as if posessed,
      and a quality reputation falling faster than Obama's approval rating.

      If I missed something, I know I did, google Toyota Tundra problems and see for yourself.
      One quote I read was, "Tundra is the begining of the end of Toyota's quality reputation".

      But while Ford has captured the top spot in Canada, The General still reigns supreme in the U.S., with a 2010 sales lead of 280,000 units, in China, in India, in Mexico, in Autralia, in South America...

      I hate to feed the troll but I find it absolutely hilarious that anyone would think Tundra is better than F150.

      Drive them back to back, especially pulling a loaded trailer and the difference speaks for itself. This Tundra may have been competitive against the competition's trucks that were around in 2003, but not so much when they have to compare to the 2011s from the competition.

      Toyota is a couple steps behind in trucks.
