Light Vs Medium-Duty Truck Classifications
When you’ve got a class 8 heavy-duty truck, you know that you’ve got a heavy-duty truck. But light and medium-duty classifications for smaller trucks, RVs, and vocational vehicles can be trickier to distinguish – especially with slight discrepancies between numbers.
In the United States, trucks are classified on a scale of 1-8 depending on the gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR). The higher the GVWR, the higher your vehicle classification is according to the current system.
