Nextran Truck Centers Kickstart 2016 With Red Hot Mack Truck Deals

New Heavy-Haul Vehicles Set to Keep America Moving

JACKSONVILLE, FL--(Marketwired - Jan 27, 2016) - With 2016 underway there are increasing signs the American economy will benefit from a variety of news in the year ahead: consumer-friendly cheap oil, improved U.S. employment, increased hiring, growing wages, and an uptick in consumer spending.

All of this means a likely jump in the manufacturing of goods and the pressing need to ship those products to destinations across the country. And Mack Trucks, the backbone to the American economy, is hitting the road, thanks in part to the commitment to quality embodied by Nextran Truck Centers, a leader in heavy-duty truck sales and service centers which sells the brand.

Fittingly, America's biggest trucks come with some big statistics. In fact, no other method of transportation can match the trucking industry. More than 70 percent of all freight shipped in the U.S. is shipped via trucks. Including manufactured and retail goods shipped between the U.S. and Canada and the U.S. and Mexico, the annual dollar value is estimated at $1.2 billion. With that much freight at stake, it's an industry that requires about 16 million vehicles and four million drivers. And these companies need a place they can trust where they can purchase and service their trucks.

Nextran Truck Centers keep America moving by supplying individual truckers and trucking companies the vehicles they need to transport manufactured and retail goods across the country's nearly 47,000 miles of interstate highways and its 4 million miles of paved road. Without their contribution to the nation's economy, the business of America wouldn't be business at all. That's why Nextran Truck Centers is pleased to announce the 2016 line of five Mack Truck vehicles.

"With a growing network of 14 full-service truck centers throughout the Southeast, and one slated to open shortly, our vehicle manufacturers including Mack, Volvo, Ford, Isuzu, and Mitsubishi, represent the most trusted and reliable brands on the market today," said President and CEO Jon Pritchett. "Keeping America moving requires nothing but the best and our commitment to our customers speaks to that dedication. In just 20 years we've grown from a few dealerships into one of the top-selling Mack Truck dealers in the U.S. and Mack's latest line of vehicles is certain to continue that tradition of greatness."

The new vehicles include the Pinnacle™ Day Cab, the Pinnacle™ Sleeper, the Granite®, the Granite® MHD, and the TerraPro® Cabover. The Mack® Pinnacle™ DayCab is a versatile workhorse for all regional trips, delivering great power, fuel economy, and maneuverability throughout the day and for all your business needs. The Pinnacle™ Sleeper is designed for comfort, heavy loads, steep grades, and long hauls. With an advanced engine, it delivers the power to handle payloads and the fuel efficiency to run longer and maximize the bottom line. Meanwhile, the Granite MHD cuts weight without cutting power. It's ideally configured for shorter runs and lighter-duty cycles with the strength to tackle a host of rugged jobs. The Terrapro Cabover is the toughest cabover in the industry.

Mack Trucks is one of North America's largest manufacturers of heavy-duty Class 8 trucks, engines, and transmissions. Founded in 1900, Mack trucks are sold and serviced in more than 45 countries worldwide. Every Mack® truck built for the North American market is assembled at its Macungie Cab & Vehicle Assembly facility in Macungie, Pennsylvania. Engines and transmissions for the North American market are built at its powertrain facility in Hagerstown, Pennsylvania.
