This year, fuel economy is a theme you’ll hear often. How truck manufacturers will comply with 2017 fuel efficiency requirements—it’s the tail end of Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Phase 1 rules before the impending GHG Phase 2 regs arrive—plays a big role in Fleet Owner’s New Models Preview.
Heavy truck OEMs weren’t all ready to talk about their solutions as of press time, however, with Volvo Trucks North America and Mack Trucks the exceptions. But OEMs that decided to keep their 2017 GHG solutions under wraps for now hinted at big changes to come, especially where Navistar’s International ProStar tractor is concerned.
Lots of other changes are in store, of course, across the 2017 new models, from light-duty pickups and vans up through the heavy Class 8 trucks profiled in these pages. More than a few new models will be hitting the road for 2017, with offerings from Navistar, Peterbilt, Ford and Honda among them.
Here’s our annual look at what you may see on the road—or own in your fleets—as the 2017 model year trucks get rolling.
