Be informed! Order an updated Data Guide package to view the improved, detailed listings!
The Data Guide package consists of 1 Car Data Guide, 1 Truck Data Guide, and 1 mid-year Supplement for only $119/package (+ postage and applicable taxes).
For mid-year updates, obtain the Supplement to both the Car & Truck Data Guides. The Supplement is created annually to improve the current model year information provided in our CAR and TRUCK Data Guides. Changes to the original books are required due to: manufacturer's revisions and late model releases, incomplete or non-receipt of manufacturer information by our print deadline, and data entry errors.
Vehicle manufacturers release marketing information and manufacturing data at different times. Increasingly, vehicles are being released throughout the year. In addition, manufacturers can revise vehicle product information in midyear to reflect marketing and product challenges. The Supplement allows us to publish new and revised information received after our press deadline. Price, weight, and VIN data are often revised during the model year.
