More trucks in the U.S. are becoming ‘cleaner,’ as opposed to the ones that roamed America’s major roads and highways decades ago, mainly due to the continued advancement of semi-truck parts design. As AutoBlog Green’s Danny King notes in his article: “When it comes to diesel trucks, the good old days weren’t so good. Go back a quarter century, for instance. Back then, a singe diesel-powered truck was throwing off about 60 times the emissions a typical ‘clean diesel’ truck goes today.” According to information from the Diesel Technology Forum, up to 33 percent of all trucks currently traversing U.S. highways are ‘cleaner’ versions of their smoky, older counterparts. About 2.9 million of 8.8 million trucks in all of America are now sporting newer, cleaner diesel engines. This data includes information on mostly class 3-8 trucks between 2007 and 2013, which were registered in the District of Columbia and all 50 states.
