GREENSBORO, N.C. — Mack Trucks has developed a new fuel economy tool that allows dealers to demonstrate to customers the potential fuel savings from certain spec’s.
The tool allows Mack customers to input and modify a number of variables on Mack Pinnacle highway models, select a route and then evaluate fuel economy performance against a baseline configuration.
“Even with today’s low fuel prices, fuel remains the single largest expense for the vast majority of our highway customers,” said Scott Barraclough, Mack technology product manager. “With this new tool, customers can quickly see the fuel efficiency impacts of different truck configurations, enabling them to optimize the spec’ of their Mack Pinnacle models to save fuel and help boost their bottom lines.”
Several highway routes allow customers to see the impact of terrain on fuel economy. The tool also provides a prediction of money saved on fuel, based on annual mileage and fuel prices.
The tool is available through Mack dealers in the US and Canada.
