Kenworth Truck Co., Ford Commercial Vehicles, Ram Commercial and Knapheide Manufacturing Co. also have scheduled press briefings at the show. To date, more than 60 exhibiting companies have announced plans to introduce their latest truck equipment and technology at the event.
Specifically, Mitsubishi Fuso has said it will debut two prototypes of its FUSO E-Cell all-electric truck at the Work Truck Show, one of which will be available for test drives as part of The Work Truck Show Ride-and-Drive.
“This is the only show in North America where you can see all the latest vocational trucks, engines and equipment from every leading manufacturer while having the opportunity to meet with technical personnel from the OEMs and upfitters to discuss your fleet’s specific needs,” said Steve Carey, NTEA’s executive director. “Also unique to The Work Truck Show are the chassis update sessions that enable attendees to discover what 15 of the leading commercial vehicle OEMs are planning this year and beyond. At each session, an OEM’s representatives share technical information about their latest chassis specifications and designs, and review body and equipment installation options. They also provide insights into their future plans related to the work truck industry.”
