Usually when a new class 8 truck hits the street I don’t lay eyes on it for nearly a solid year after full production begins. Such is the burden of not having a direct connection to the trucking industry. This year Trucktoberfest was pushed back and happened to coincided nicely with the release of Mack’s latest OTR offering, the Anthem. No more waiting for me!
Join me as I take the five minute tour of this all new truck.
I think it’s just plain ugly. Nothing new here, other than the hood. Mack has been doing this for years, just add some decorations, and give it a new name. It really shows a serious lack of investment in the Mack product line.
Specs are good, all Volvo technology, which is not a bad thing, especially if you’re going with an automatic trans.
I don’t think it’s going to be a big seller in the Owner Operator market.
