IN PRINT — Work Horses: Advances for severe service

Drivers of severe-service vocational trucks will likely look back on 2016 as a year that made their jobs much easier. It wasn't a banner year for growth in many industry segments, but truck makers still managed to produce some attention-grabbing upgrades to existing product lines. This year saw the introduction of a new -lightweight 11-liter engine for the -vocational side that offers a very nice power-to-weight ratio with ratings ideal for the market. And we even got a couple of brand new models to cheer about: the MBT 40 off-road severe-service chassis from Western Star and Navistar's HX line.
