September 18 - Mack Trucks has introduced its latest generation highway truck, the Mack Anthem.

The truck features an all-new exterior design with optimised aerodynamics, improving fuel efficiency by up to 3 percent while enhancing driver comfort.

In addition to a new hood and grille, Mack engineers redesigned the roof and chassis fairings, mirror covers, and front bumper and air dam to more easily cut through the wind.

Gauges on the instrument panel have been positioned higher for better driver visibility, while the steering wheel contains illuminated controls for cruise control, Bluetooth and the audio system.

The Anthem is available with the Mack MP7, MP8 and MP8-TC engines and in three configurations.

Mack also introduced Mack Connect. When a vehicle service is required the closest dealer location is identified, and service bay space and parts availability is confirmed, all while the truck is still on the road.

The Mack Anthem is available for order now, with full production beginning in the first quarter of 2018.
