KEY: mpg = miles per gallon; SUV = sport utility vehicle.

a Sales period is October 1 of the previous year through September 30 of the current year. These figures represent only those sales that could be matched to corresponding U.S. Environmental Protection Agency fuel economy values.

NOTES

Fleet sales total cannot be compared with truck sales in table 1-12 for the following reasons: 1) this table includes both domestic and imported trucks, whereas the numbers in table 1-12 are for domestic trucks only; and 2) this table covers only light trucks, whereas the numbers in table 1-12 include heavy trucks.

Numbers may not add to totals due to rounding.
