Comcar Adds 350 New Mack® Pinnacle™ Models to its Fleet
GREENSBORO, NC (Jan. 12, 2015) – Mack Trucks announced today that Comcar Industries, Inc. recently added 350 Mack® Pinnacle™ models to its fleet, citing fuel efficiency, uptime and a strong dealer network as drivers for their decision.
The trucks were delivered in September and are already on the road in Florida, Georgia and South Dakota. Mack models comprise about 75 percent of the Comcar fleet.
“We’ve been working with Mack for more than 30 years,” said Mark Bostick, president of Comcar. “We chose the Mack Pinnacle trucks because of their fuel efficiency and the dealer support we receive.”
Comcar is utilizing both Mack Pinnacle Axle Back day cab and sleeper models. The day cabs are equipped with Mack MP7® engines and the sleepers with Mack MP8® engines. Both models were built with the Mack mDRIVE™ automated manual transmission for a fully integrated powertrain, engineered for optimum performance and lower maintenance. The sleeper models feature the Super Econodyne powertrain package that maximizes fuel economy, delivering up to a 3.5 percent improvement in efficiency over similarly spec’d models.
“We appreciate the investment that Comcar has made in Mack,” said Stephen Roy, president of Mack Trucks North American Sales and Marketing. “We know the Mack Pinnacle equipped with the mDRIVE offers outstanding fuel efficiency benefits, which is why we recently made the mDRIVE standard on our Pinnacle models. The mDRIVE has a proven record of increasing productivity, safety and efficiency for our customers, and we look forward to delivering these benefits to Comcar as well.”
The trucks were also equipped with the Mack GuardDog® Connect telematics platform that enables real-time diagnosis of issues and proactive scheduling of repairs to keep Comcar trucks on the road and on the job.
