Mack Announces Booth Lineup for Work Truck Show 2022
GREENSBORO, NC (March 2, 2022) – Mack Trucks announced today that the Mack® Granite® and Mack MD Series models will take center stage at the Work Truck Show 2022, March 8-11 at the Indiana Convention Center.
The two vehicles, both of which are known for their durability, reliability and for improving total cost of ownership, cover an array of vocational applications ranging from Class 6 to Class 8.
The Mack Granite model in booth No. 3523 features Command Steer, which combines an electric motor with the Mack Granite’s existing hydraulic steering system. Utilizing multiple sensors throughout the truck at a rate of 2,000 times per second to monitor driver inputs, environmental elements and the terrain, Command Steer provides variable steering effort through its electric motor. The system applies additional torque when needed to make it easier to keep the truck on the desired route.
Command Steer also suppresses uneven terrain such as dips, ruts and potholes. The system reacts to those inputs by countering the steer force, smoothing the steering feedback and reducing steering wheel “kicks.” Command Steer also features a return-to-zero capability that automatically returns the steering wheel to the center position in forward and reverse, easing the navigation of tight maneuvers.
