Class 8 Truck Sales Up In April 2008

According to TheTrucker.com, Ward’s Automotive reports new heavy-duty truck sales were up 15 percent in April compared to March. This is the third consecutive month truck sales have improved in 2008.

Truck sales still suffer from economic worries and the impact of high fuel prices. Analysts and truck manufacturers expect that sales should pick up near the end of this year and through 2009.

New truck standards for 2010 should help sales, but the economy is still the strongest factor to encourage or hinder new truck purchases.
