Volume of our benchmark model was up moderately in February, an encouraging data point in a month with few auctions on the calendar. Pricing was mildly lower, although very low volume for newer trucks means we’re not drawing any conclusions just yet. See below for detail.

  • Model year 2016: $46,300 average; $5,595 (10.8%) lower than January
  • Model year 2015: $39,600 average; $475 (1.2%) higher than January
  • Model year 2014: $30,300 average; $800 (3.8%) lower than January
  • Model year 2013: $27,575 average; $2,119 (7.1%) lower than January
  • Model year 2012: $24,400 average; $225 (0.9 %) higher than January
  • Model year 2011: No sales in February

In the first 2 months of 2019, 4-6 year-old examples of our benchmark model brought 5.8% more money than in the same period of 2018. Going forward, expect year-over-year comparisons to look less impressive this year because the market was strong for all of 2018. We expect that strength to continue into at least the second quarter.
