Automakers have been focusing on making trucks lighter, but bigger. The news has been full of new medium-duty trucks coming to market and arriving at dealers, but the light-duty segment is quickly growing for the work truck segment. Additionally the popularity of the 4x4 has risen in comparison to the 4x2. The 4x4 made up 41% of light-duty service trucks in 2012, and by 2016 this number had risen to 54%, according to Utilimarc. Diesel is also continue to grow in popularity in this segment with six of the 11 light-duty work truck models currently available offering a diesel model.
