EPA sets stricter smog rule for model year 2027 trucks

01/06/23

    DTF was included in a January 3, 2023 report by Bulk Transporter titled EPA sets stricter smog rule for model year 2027 trucks.

    Executive Director Allen Schaeffer was quoted in the news report.

    “Just under half of registered commercial trucks operating today are an older generation, pre-2011 model year vehicles with relatively higher emissions without the benefit of particulate traps and/or selective catalytic reduction technology,” Schaeffer said in a DTF-issued release shortly after EPA issued the final new rule on Dec. 20. “The relative benefit of accelerating the turnover of these older trucks on the road today to newer technology will be enormous.”
