Average price of used Class 8 trucks ‘better than expected’

Jason Cannon November 12, 2013

Used truck dealers continue to characterize business as “good” or even better than expected, although maybe not quite as strong as they had hoped, 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,” says Steve Tam, Vice President-Commercial Vehicle Sector with ACT. “For the first nine months this year, prices were down only 3 percent, relative to the same period in 2012. Earlier expectations were for price declines of between 5 percent and 10 percent.”
