According to the latest data, sales of full-size diesel pickup trucks in the United States are up 23% over Q1 2019—more than double the sales of all cars and trucks for the quarter (11%), the Diesel Technology Forum reports.

“Half-year sales numbers for 2019 demonstrate a continued demand for diesel in vehicles that support America’s toughest jobs,” said Allen Schaeffer, executive director of the Diesel Technology Forum. “More sales of diesels in the vehicle types American car and truck buyers prefer can deliver big benefits. If every full-size pickup sold today in America were a diesel, we could realize more than 500 million gallons of fuel savings in year. This would work out to be the same greenhouse gas emission savings gained if all of Toyota’s passenger vehicle sales were all-electric. It demonstrates that there are many ways to get meaningful reductions in greenhouse gas emissions, and we should embrace them all.”
