Approximately 55 percent of the passenger vehicles registered in the United States are light trucks, such as sport utility vehicles, vans, minivans, and pickup trucks. Conventional automobiles, such as sedans and coupes, make up the rest of passenger vehicles.

NCHRP Research Report 1061: Highway and Street Design Vehicles: An Update, from TRB's National Cooperative Highway Research Program, proposes revisions to the dimensions of 16 of the 20 design vehicles used in the 2018 edition of AASHTO’s A Policy on Geometric Design of Highways and Streets, commonly known as the Green Book.

Supplemental to the report is a spreadsheet tool.
