Short 2022 Model-Year to Increase Pent-Up Fleet Demand in 2023
The 74th State of the Fleet Industry video produced by Automotive Fleet offers an updated look at the state of the fleet market as presented by AF Editor Mike Antich.
Today's topics include:
- The 2022 model-year has closed for all intents and purposes, with new-vehicle ordering for most makes and models of common fleet vehicles now past final order deadline dates.
- The acquisition of 2022 model year trucks by fleet will be challenging for those who missed the final order cut-offs.
- Those 2022 models still available for ordering have disclaimers that production and delivery dates cannot be guaranteed.
- The anticipation is that 2023 model-year ordering will be very intense due to heightened fleet demand from those fleets that missed final order deadlines for 2022.
