Mack Trucks, Greensboro, North Carolina, has announced it will showcase the Mack Granite and Mack MD Series trucks at the Work Truck Show 2022 in Indianapolis, March 8-11.
According to a news release from Mack, the vehicles are designed with durability, reliability and improve the total cost of ownership in mind. The company says the trucks cover various vocational applications ranging from Class 6 to Class 8. Both trucks will be at booth number 3523.
The Mack Granite truck features Command Steer, which combines an electric motor with the truck’s existing hydraulic steering system. Command Steer provides variable steering effort through its electric motor, utilizing multiple sensors throughout the truck at 2,000 times per second to monitor driver inputs, environmental elements and the terrain. The system applies additional torque when needed to make it easier to keep the truck on the desired route.
Command Steer also suppresses uneven terrain such as dips, ruts and potholes. The system reacts to those inputs by countering the steering force, smoothing the steering feedback. Command Steer also features a return-to-zero capability that automatically returns the steering wheel to the center position in forward and reverses, easing the navigation of tight maneuvers.
Mack Granite also includes an axle-back, dumping capabilities and a Mack MP 8-505C engineer, which provides 505 horsepower and 1,860 pounds per foot of torque.
The Mack MD Series includes Class 7 dumping capabilities and a Cummins ISB6.7 diesel engine. It also includes a Class 8-inspired dash with flat-bottomed steering wheel, Mack Air driver’s seat, cab air suspension, Meritor 12,000-pound front axle, Meritor 21,000-pound rear axle and Geotab telematics.
