PACCAR Australia has claimed the PowerTorque Technology and Innovation Award at the 2014 Motoring Matters awards presentation in Melbourne.
Twelve best-selling Kenworth and DAF prime movers and rigids will be displayed at one of ITTES’ must see exhibits – ‘PACCAR World’ – which will occupy the Town Square Hoecker.
The most significant new developments will be the official launch of the PACCAR MX-13 heavy-duty engine in Kenworth’s T409 and T409SAR trucks, and the unveiling of Kenworth’s new conventional truck cab and ergonomically-designed Business Class interior. The K200 cab-over will also be on display, demonstrating its Active Cab Entry automated step system.
DAF will showcase a range of premium heavy and medium duty trucks in various configurations and specifications. Certain to turn heads will be the flagship XF105 with the class-leading Super Space Cab as well as the versatile CF85 which will be on hand in both prime mover and rigid models. DAF’s CF75 and LF55 trucks will also be displayed with an air lift pusher axle that ingeniously turns a 4×2 into a 6×2.
In addition, the show will include PACCAR Parts’ TRP range, and consultants from PACCAR Financial will be available to discuss specialist truck financing solutions.
PACCAR Australia’s Director of Sales and Marketing, Andrew Hadjikakou, says ITTES is the largest transport event in the southern hemisphere and the ideal forum to showcase PACCAR’s products and services.
“We will be presenting world-class Kenworth and DAF models in a wide variety of configurations and specifications. We want to show the industry that PACCAR offers the total package – a complete range of quality, safe and efficient road transport solutions, which draw on the best local and international expertise, and can be customised for Australian conditions and individual requirements. Plus all our products are backed by the most experienced and professional nationwide service, parts and support network,” he said.
“At PACCAR World, we will have professionals from most aspects of our business, including engineering, production and sales as well as representatives from dealers across Australia. We want to make it as easy as possible for people to understand how PACCAR can improve drivers’ working lives and operators’ bottom line,” Andrew added.
