LAS VEGAS, Nev. — Mack Trucks was at this week’s Conexpo-Con/Agg construction equipment show with some new offerings, including a sleeper option for its Granite and other interior upgrades for the Granite and Titan.
Among the new offerings from Mack is a medium-heavy duty version of its popular Granite. The Granite MHD is designed for applications, including municipal, which don’t always require the heavy-duty spec’s the Granite is typically designed for.
“In the current economic environment, companies are taking an even harder look at how much truck they truly need,” said Curtis Dorwart, Mack vocational products marketing manager. “Our new Granite Medium Heavy-Duty delivers just the right amount of Mack’s legendary strength, durability and reliability, along with valuable weight and cost savings.”
The Granite MHD comes in an axle-forward or axle-back configuration and is powered by a Cummins ISL9 engine.
Also new from Mack is a 36-inch sleeper for its Granite, complete with a 30×80-inch mattress, curtain, bunk restraint and under-bunk storage.
“We’ve seen a considerable increase in the number of vocational customers expanding their operations beyond regional sites,” Dorwart said. “The new Mack Granite sleeper is ideal for customers in any market working to meet the federal hours-of-service requirements.”
The Granite also comes with a new headliner console, optional one-piece windshield and updated Champion Level trim package with button-tuck vinyl and ultraleather seats, the company announced. The new Champion Level trim package and one-piece windshield have also been made available on the ultra heav-haul Titan.
Mack Granite customers can also now spec’ the 3000-series Allison automatic transmission.
