Chassis OEMs to present new model year updates at NTEA’s Truck Product Conference

Nine chassis manufacturers will share the latest commercial vehicle updates from a technical and engineering perspective at NTEA’s 2021 Truck Product Conference, the organization announced. This in-person event will be held Tuesday, Sept. 21 to Wednesday, Sept. 22 at Kalahari Resorts & Conventions in Sandusky, Ohio. Attendees can gain insights on upcoming changes to new model work trucks and upfitter integration implications from chassis OEMs, NTEA says. Presenters will share product upgrades and launches, positions on technical issues and key body builder information.

“Installing equipment on a chassis is not a simple task,” said Kevin Koester, NTEA senior director. “Model year changes at the OEM level can have a large impact on the ability to quickly and correctly mount bodies and equipment on a chassis. Truck Product Conference is an opportunity for equipment manufacturers and distributors to directly engage chassis OEMs, gaining important technical insights to help the upfitting process.”

This year’s event features a two-day program with opportunities to see the newest vehicles firsthand, participate in Q&A with chassis OEM representatives, and network with commercial vehicle professionals.

Participating chassis manufacturers:

  • Crane Carrier, a Battle Motors Company;
  • Ford Commercial Vehicles;
  • General Motors Fleet;
  • Hino Trucks;
  • International Truck;
  • Isuzu Commercial Truck of America;
  • Kenworth Truck Co.;
  • Peterbilt Motors Co.; and
  • Ram Commercial.
