a These figures represent only those sales that could be matched to corresponding U.S. Environmental Protection Agency fuel economy values.
b Some 4-wheel drive pickups previously classified as large pickups were correctly reclassified as small pickups.

KEY: mpg = miles per gallon. U = data are not available.

NOTES: Numbers and percents may not add to totals due to rounding.
Fleet sales total cannot be compared with truck sales in table 1-10 for the following reasons: 1) this table includes both domestic and imported trucks, whereas the numbers in table 1-10 are for domestic trucks only; and 2) thistable covers only light trucks, whereas the numbers in table 1-10 include heavy trucks.
