McLEAN, Va., October 22, 2021--(BUSINESS WIRE)--With auction pricing jumping notably and retail pricing continuing its record-breaking trajectory, the sky’s the limit for the Class 8 market, according to analysts from J.D. Power Valuation Services, as reported in the October 2021 Commercial Truck Guidelines Industry Update. The medium duty market was generally strong, yet again.
