Truck Fuel Efficiency: A Top Priority for the Industry

While the past year’s incredible sales figures in the trucking industry can be attributed to a number of different factors, there is one in particular that stands out: fuel efficiency. Truck fuel efficiency has become an increasingly important issue to manufacturers and fleet owners alike, and it looks like this will remain the rule well into the future. Read on to learn more about what the top trucking brands are saying about truck fuel efficiency!

 Truck Fuel Efficiency Helps Encourage High Sales Figures

 Daimler Trucks North America, parent company to both the Freightliner and Western Star brands, reported in 2014 that their fuel-efficient models were among their top-selling trucks for the entire year. This not only shows an increased awareness for eco-friendly options in the industry, but also for a desire to adhere to the federal greenhouse gas standards. The Environmental Protection Agency and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration both collaborated to put into place a program regulating greenhouse gas emissions. Trucking companies and manufacturers have responded accordingly, both by modifying engines and by researching new methods to improve truck fuel efficiency overall.

 With a new phase of the EPA and NHTSA greenhouse gas regulations set to come into effect in the coming years, truck manufacturers will continue to develop new methods of creating fuel-efficient, environmentally-conscious trucks. If the past year’s sales figures are any indication, this next generation of fuel-efficient trucks will be just as successful, if not more so!
