New Mack Pinnacle Rawhide Edition Ups Style, Comfort
March 2008, TruckingInfo.com - Feature
Mack Trucks introduced the Mack Pinnacle Rawhide Edition at the Mid-America Trucking Show last week.
The Rawhide Edition takes the look of the Mack Pinnacle Axle Forward model and adds to the exterior style as well as interior comfort.
"The Rawhide Edition combines classic styling with all the technology benefits of the Pinnacle model, and the next generation of luxury and comfort," said Jerry Warmkessel, Mack marketing product manager for highway products.
The truck is available in three cab configurations: 60- and 70-inch midrise sleepers, plus daycab. The truck's axle-forward position maximizes payload, while also giving it a bold stance.
Dominant exterior features include a big "Texas-style" chrome bumper, stainless steel cab and sleeper skirts, forward-mounted dual seven-inch bullhorn exhaust stacks, a 13-inch stainless steel exterior sun visor, four chrome air horns, stainless steel hood latches, as well as stylized chrome heated and lighted mirrors - each mirror with a raised bulldog emblem.
The indoors of the Rawhide Edition features soft, luxurious button-tuck Ultraleather and two-tone embroidered seats, complemented by a dash housing Mack's Co-Pilot driver display. Interior color choices are: Slate Gray; Vintage Oxblood; Deep Copper; and Classic Buckskin. The dash panel is brushed nickel, and the leather-grip steering wheel includes chromed spokes. Each seat has the Rawhide emblem embroidered on its headrest. The Rawhide emblem is repeated in the door sill, door panel trim and on the back wall of the sleeper. The two-toned pattern in the seats is continued in the sleeper, this time in button tuck. The cabinets have accent strips to match the dash. And the cab headliner has four-point lighting, serving both the driver and passenger.
