BIG WHEELS KEEP TURNING
In a healthy sign for the US economy, sales of big commercial trucks continue to grow. Overall sales of medium and heavy duty trucks were up 12 per cent in July, topping 40,000 units.
It’s the biggest Class 8 semi trucks that accounted for more than half of the overall total – up nearly a quarter. Sales of medium duty trucks were actually down, but only by 1.6 per cent.
