Time for a new pickup?

Before you plunk down your hard-earned cash, you may wish to check out this new Reader Review site. Created by our colleagues at Commercial Carrier Journal, the site includes the latest pickup truck models and covers a variety of makes and models of Class 8 trucks, engines and automated transmissions, as well as the most recent versions of electronic logging software. Future updates will expand coverage to more equipment and technology products and services.

To gather the reviews, CCJ editors ask qualified fleet operators to evaluate certain products they already use. Reviewers rank each truck, component or technology on specific criteria from a low of 1 to a high of 5. They can also comment on their overall experiences with the product or service.

Evaluations are collected through online surveys and interviews. Each criteria’s numerical score is an average of all reviewers’ criteria scores; a product’s overall ranking is an average of numerical scores.

Reviewers remain anonymous, but are identified with general information on fleet size, freight type and geographic location.
