Construction trucks sold in November surprised on the upside, with recent model years posting increases in price and volume after a weak October. We expected a seasonal slowdown in this sector, but November’s results suggest otherwise. December should provide further insight on whether the construction market shrugged off winter weather and continued its recovery through the 4th quarter. 

The Mack GU713 returned the highest volume in newer model years, followed closely by the Peterbilt 367. The International 7000-series returned the highest volume in 2007 and older model years.
