Every year, truckers and their custom trucks receive awards from a wide range of competitions. It’s that time of year when the original equipment manufacturers go head-to-head. Three nominees for the 2015 Commercial Truck of the Year have been announced by the American Truck Dealers.
International’s WorkStar 7600, Kenworth’s T880 Vocational Truck with Paccar MX-13 Engine, and Peterbilt’s Model 567 have all received nods from an ATD panel.
A panel of judges will test drive and evaluate the trucks at Manheim San Francisco Bay on Jan. 19. Land Line Magazine Field Editor Suzanne Stempinski is on the judging panel.
Categories include innovation, design, safety, driver ergonomics and comfort. The winner will be announced on Saturday, Jan. 24, at the 2015 ATD Convention and Expo in San Francisco.
In addition to the award ceremony, the ATD convention will include keynote remarks from ATD Chairman and CEO of JX Enterprises Eric Jorgensen and Thomas Frey, executive director and senior futurist at the DaVinci Institute.
