Chrysler Group Transport, the auto company’s private fleet operation for parts distribution, is replacing its entire fleet of 325 Class 8 tractors with Mack Pinnacle DayCab models, according to the truck maker.
The first Mack tractors have already been delivered to Chrysler’s Detroit terminal, and all 325 are expected to be in service by November, according to Mack. The trucks are powered by Mack’s proprietary MP diesels equipped with SCR aftertreatment systems that meet the EPA 2010 emissions standards.
The new truck order is part of a complete package that includes service support, parts support, financing, and technical training, according to Mack.
“When we decided to refresh our entire fleet, quality, ease of maintenance and fuel economy topped our list of requirements,” said Jean-Paul 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.”
