U.S. Heavy Trucks Sales Rise Sharply

U.S. retail sales of Class 8 trucks surged 35.6% in June to their highest level in almost four years, prompting truck makers to further increase their production rates.
Manufacturers sold 17,192 heavy-duty trucks in June, up from 12,683 a year earlier, according to data from Ward’s Communications.
That marked the eighth consecutive monthly increase in sales from the same point a year earlier, and was the largest monthly total since 17,504 in July 2000.
Every trucking nameplate saw Class 8 sales increase in June.
