H ard-charging Volvo has been the clear winner in market share gain in the Class 8 market over the past three years while Freightliner continues to hold the lead and Navistar International remains a strong second. In the Class 7 market, GMC was the most successful in putting new drivers behind the wheel in 1999, growing its market share by 8.5 per cent. The Class 5 and 6 markets, expected to surge with the move to more regional distribution patterns to be created by the growth of e-commerce, will become more competitive in 2000. Mitsubishi Fuso will be offering its medium-duty trucks in Canada this year while General Motors Canada has formed an alliance that will bring American Isuzu’s low-cab-forward Class 3 to 5 trucks north of the 49th.
