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.

Aaron Marsh

Before computerization had fully taken hold and automotive work took someone who speaks engine, Aaron grew up in Upstate New York taking cars apart and fixing and rewiring them, keeping more than a few great jalopies (classics) on the road that probably didn't deserve to be. He spent a decade inside the Beltway covering Congress and the intricacies of the health care system before a stint in local New England news, picking up awards for both pen and camera.

He wrote about you-name-it, from transportation and law and the courts to events of all kinds and telecommunications, and landed in trucking when he joined FleetOwner in July 2015. Long an editorial leader, he was a keeper of knowledge at FleetOwner ready to dive in on the technical and the topical inside and all-around trucking—and still turned a wrench or two. Or three.
