Mack Trucks plans big for year aheadThe truck manufacturer has just announced a new 60-inch sleeper cab, which Dean Bestwick, Vice President Mack Trucks Australia, says is now available to order.

“We know that sleeper size is a big issue for long haul drivers and we’re responding to their requirement for a bigger sleeper.

“This will provide higher levels of driver comfort and it’s available for order now.”

While a new Mack Safety Pack has been announced for a 2017 arrival. The pack includes;

  • Lane departure warning
  • Following distance alerts
  • Stationary vehicle braking
  • Over-speed alert and action
  • Adaptive cruise control with braking

“The safety of drivers and road users is a high priority for Mack customers and we’ve responded to their requests for more safety features with a new complete package that will be available in 2017,” said Mr Bestwick.

While Mack Trucks is also in a prime position to build on the growing popularity of models such as the Granite, according to Dean Bestwick.

“The Granite is proving to be a huge success as an all-rounder for local and intrastate distribution,”

“While the Super-Liner is owning the conventional truck line-haul segment. Operators, such as S&G Transport are appreciating the combination of the fuel-efficient MP series engines and the mDRIVE automated manual transmission.”
