Most Popular Truck Brands in the United States

 

Volvo, who has quickly been gaining popularity nationwide, is trying to step up their game even more, as proven by their state-of-the-art incoming additions, including flashy “Customer Experience Center,” according to Transport Topics. Clearly, the Swedish auto-manufacturer is looking to compete with biggest companies in the transportation sector of the economy.

So, that begs the question, who is it that Volvo has to catch up to?

Here are the biggest and most widely driven semi-truck brands within the trucking industry:

#1. Freightliner—by Daimler Trucks North America

Also the owner of the Western Star brand, Daimler’s Freightliner is the most popular brand of semi-truck in the United States. According to MSN, about one third of all newly purchased semi-trucks each year (190,000) are Freightliners.

#2. International—by Navistar

Having produced 41.1% of all of the day cab tractors on the American market in 2015, International is a gigantic company that is only getting bigger.

#3. PACCAR

Peterbilt, Kenworth, and PACCAR are all under the same ownership, and together, make up a gigantic proportion of active semi-trucks in the United States.

#4. Volvo

Volvo rounds out the list of major semi-truck producers in America. The company, as evidenced by their beefed-up plant in Virginia, is working hard to increase sales in North America. With a focus on safety and modern innovation, Volvo is quickly spreading its influence all over the country, and their semis have become a regular sight on U.S. highways.

Those are the four largest brands of semi-trucks that are currently being driven on American roads. They are the most reliable and cost efficient producers on the market. But, smart business owners in the trucking and transportation industry are looking for further ways to maximize their cost efficiency and increase their cash flow.
