Used truck dealers continue to characterize business as “good” or even better than expected, according to the latest release of the State of the Industry: U.S. Classes 3-8 Used Trucks, published by ACT Research.
“The average selling price of total reported Class 8 trucks continues to hold up better than expected,” said Steve Tam, Vice President-Commercial Vehicle Sector with ACT. “For the first nine months this year, prices were down only 3%, relative to the same period in 2012. Earlier expectations were for price declines of between 5% and 10%.”
The report from ACT provides data on the average used price for the top-selling Class 8 model for each of the major truck OEMs – Freightliner (Daimler); Kenworth and Peterbilt (Paccar); International (Navistar); and Volvo and Mack (Volvo).
