What's the best semi truck manufacture and model?

Hi, I am looking to buy a new semi. But I don't know what is the best make and model to choose. It has to have a sleeper and get atleast 5 miles to the gallon. I will be hauling a dry van trailer (53 foot) with about 40-70 thpusand pounds. I want a dependable and reliable truck. Thanks to all who answer.

Since you say you will buying an new OTR tractor, the question really becomes what make/model do you like best?

The most popular makes for O-O's are Freightliner and Peterbilt, with Caterpillar being the most popular engine, with at least 460 hp and 13 and 18 speeds are most often speced. Does that mean that is what you should buy? No. You need to spec your truck for your application.

Almost any truck on the market today will easily handle what you are proposing on hauling, and will be dependable and reliable, so it really comes down to personal preference. For instance do you prefer a Ford, Chevy or Toyota car? Which one is better? I may think one is better than another, but you may have an entirely different opinion. The same with trucks. Me, my favorite is a Kenworth. I have owned almost every make on the market, and I keep coming back to KW's. I like the way the handle, the interior and looks. I owned several Pete's and just didn't care for them. Nothing wrong with them, just not for me.

Believe it or not, you want a truck you can live with and in. If you don't like it, you will be regretting it every day. This isn't like a car you drive to work and back. You will be spending more time in your truck than anywhere else, so you better like it. I once had a truck that did everything it needed to do -- had plenty of power, easy on fuel, looked good, etc., but it didn't have a cup holder and no convenient place to put one. I cussed that truck every time I got in it.

Visit some dealers, get a ride with a friend, if possible, ask other drivers what they like/don't like about their trucks.

Check truck sales sites such as Commercial Truck Trader, Truck Paper and eBay. You can learn a lot reading the specs on trucks for sale.

Good Luck!
