Buyers’ guide on pre-tier 4 trucks finds steady prices

Used truck buyers seeking to avoid the maintenance headaches of emission control components enacted by Tier 4 standards (required on most over-the-road trucks after 2007) have been putting a price floor on such vehicles regardless of growing age and mileage. A spot check on an assortment of 2007 trucks finds their asking prices have fallen, but only nominally, compared with prices from two years ago.

“No doubt, values of pre-Tier 4 trucks continue to be strong,” says Bill Nelson of US Auctioneers. “Strong relative to their mileage, however. As a rule, prices do slip as miles go up.”
