The hour-long episode, which will air at 8 p.m. EST, will go behind the scenes to show what it takes to build a Mack Truck from start to finish. This episode features a heavy-haul Titan and Mack MP10 engine

"Filming a show about Mack trucks was definitely one of the coolest gigs I've had," said Ultimate Factories associate producer Francis Cordero in her blog about the episode. "There are hundreds of people involved in the making of this truck in three main facilities."

The show filmed at all three locations, the first at the Macungie Assembly plant where the trucks drive off the line. The second facility was the Powertrain center where the Mack engines are made. The last location was the Customer Center where Mack trucks are test driven on a closed course.
