What Is Considered A Medium Truck vs A Heavy-Duty Truck?

A medium truck is defined as any truck, excluding buses and motor homes, with a gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR) greater than 10,000 pounds. These large trucks include both commercial and non-commercial vehicles. However, in 2020 72% of the trucks involved in fatal traffic crashes were heavy-duty trucks that had a Gross Vehicle Weight Rating (GVWR) > 26,000 lbs.
