U.S. automobile and truck registrations reached about 263 million units in 2017. The number of vehicles in operation in the United States is projected to increase to around 289 million units in the third quarter of 2019. Light truck retail sales increased from 10.6 million units in 2017 to a staggering 11.9 million units in 2018. These figures underpin the assumption that light trucks remain in high demand while customers seem to have lost interest in cars: Just 5.3 million cars were sold in the United States in 2018.
