GREENSBORO, N.C. — Mack Trucks has announced it has received a 325-truck order to replenish Chrysler Group’s fleet.

The trucks will be Mack Pinnacle day cabs with Mack MP-series engines using ClearTech selective catalytic reduction (SCR), the company announced. The trucks will be put to work in both Canada and the US.

“These Mack trucks save our customers money because they use less fuel and require less maintenance,” said David Barletta, Mack central region vice-president. “And in meeting EPA 2010 regulations, they also deliver near-zero emissions.”

Chrysler Group uses the trucks to deliver pats to auto assembly plants and parts distribution centres. It has already taken delivery of the first of the new Pinnacles. All 325 will be in service by the end of November, the company predicts.

“When we decided to refresh our entire fleet, quality, ease of maintenance and fuel economy topped our list of requirements,” said Jean-Paul ‘JP’ Barrette, head of Chrysler Group Transport. “We are very pleased with the partnership we have developed with Mack and look forward to the deployment of the entire fleet.”
