Diesel Sales Growth is Any Which Way But Down
With almost 95,000 diesel-powered vehicles sold last year, consumers are driving growth in the diesel market and truck manufacturers have noticed. As a result, several are announcing more models coming this year.
In the U.S. a wide variety of diesel-powered vehicles are currently available with additional models on the way. Even the F-150, America’s best-selling passenger vehicle, will have a diesel option next model year. Hyundai and Kia have stated their plans to bring diesel options to the U.S. as well.
