As 2014 draws to a close, there has been a flurry of good news for the trucking industry, particularly as regards overall Class 8 sales figures. The numbers for Class 8 trucks have not looked this good in nearly six years, and they are not alone: medium-duty truck sales have also exceeded expectations recently. But with all of these positive reports coming out now, what are the chances that we will continue to see them into the new year? Read on to find out!
Predictions for 2015 Class 8 Truck Sales Figures
Recently, Fleet Owner magazine spoke to W.M. Rush of Rush Enterprises, who made his own set of predictions for the continuation of strong Class 8 truck sales. He believes that not only will the sales levels we have seen this year stay steady, but that they may in fact increase by the time that 2015 is over. While there is obviously no guarantee either way when you are looking a full year ahead, the chances of this happening seem for now to be fairly likely. Why is that? For one thing, the increase that has already been seen is a reflection of a stronger-than-ever economy for the trucking industry. After overcoming the recession, the industry as a whole is in a stable position that allows for increased activity. For another, truck models themselves have seen such vast improvements over the past years, from improved fuel efficiency to enhanced safety technologies, that it is no wonder every fleet owner out there is trying to get their hands on an amazing new truck.
