2012 ATD Commercial Truck of the Year

The trucks have been tested, the list has been generated, the ballots are printing as we speak.  Judging critera such as overall look, roominess and ease of maintainence a select panel of journalists have made their call.

And the nominees for the heavy duty (Class 8) segment are…

The Freightliner 114SD

To me, the Freightliner seems like the odd man out in this competition as the other three trucks are OTR models with completely different setups in terms of suspension, steering and styling.

The official results will be announced the NADA-ATD convention in Las Vegas this coming February.  What truck grabs your vote?
