Mack MD

Hey, look at that, Mack has a new medium truck, the MD.

The video above will tell you all you need to know about the new product line. If you like the Anthem styling you’ll like this truck. Personally I’ve never been a fan.

Mack is assembling this truck a new setup facility outside of Salem, VA. The MD is the only Mack of modern times built outside of Macungie, PA. It’s a sign of the modern truck industry that you can setup shop just about anywhere. As long your suppliers can find the loading dock you can assemble a truck. If you’re like me you probably have a bygone picture of massive integrated factories where engine blocks are cast, frames are squeezed from molten steel, and cabs are stamped into existence. Time to get with it!

Any bets on if we will see a Volvo medium duty truck in the near future?

    Sales will be low unless they seed the market. Still a class 8 cab, frame and fuel tank. Nothing innovative. Looks like a ‘90s. Mid liner.

      Spot on with the Midliner reference. Class7/8 medium duty truck market is jammed full of options now. It’s a crowded dirty pool to jump head first into.
