I like halftracks.
They have better armour than trucks plus they have a kind of recon bonus. You can use a few halftracks and troops and use them as a recon unit. They have the kind of recon bonus the Armoured Car gets.
I think they move better than trucks in bad conditions mud and snow, but I might be wrong there. Good to have a few horses in the stables for the mean seasons though.
If I have the spare production points I'll always go for the halftracks. Trucks for HQ's, tracks for the fighting men.
Also good for a quick retreat too.
