How much does a Truck Weigh?

The word “truck” derives from the word “truckle” meaning small wheel or from the Latin word “trochus” meaning iron hoop. It was used for the first time with its real meaning in 1930. In states such as USA and Canada the word truck defines commercial vehicles larger than normal cars. In Australia and New Zealand a truck is called a ute (from utility). In United Kingdom, Malaysia, India, Ireland and Singapore, the word lorry is used instead of truck. Trucks can be found in many sizes, with different configurations and these have an average weight of 20 tons.
