HDT Presents Awards to Top 20 Product Winners

Heavy Duty Trucking Publisher David Moniz presents Top 20 award to J.J. Keller President Marne Keller-Krikava.

Each year, Heavy Duty Trucking honors 20 of the best new products introduced the previous year with its Top 20 awards. Each product was selected based on its level of innovation, whether it addresses significant industry issues or concerns, and its potential to improve a trucking operation’s bottom line. The winners appeared in our February 2014 issue, and awards were presented at the Technology and Maintenance Council annual meeting, the Truckload Carriers Association annual convention, and the Mid-America Trucking Show in the spring of 2014.

Don't let anyone tell you that the classic-styled trucks are dead. Peterbilt's Model 389 drew crowds all weekend, as did Western Star and Kenworth with their long-nose models.

Saturday in Louisville, Ky., was windy, blustery and rainy -- great weather for an indoor trade show, not so good for those wanting to see the truck beauty competition outside. Inside it was warm and dry, and attendees got some valuable one-on-one face time with the hundreds of exhibitors.

Volvo Trucks at MATS 2013

At the core of the new VNX heavy-haul and vocational tractor is a Volvo integrated powertrain featuring a newly introduced D16 engine with 600 horsepower, 2,050 pounds-feet of torque and I-Shift automated manual transmission.

Volvo made news at the 2013 Mid-America Trucking Show by making its automated I-Shift transmission standard on trucks with Volvo engines and by making good on its promise to go more aggressively after the vocational market with a new heavy-haul model, among other announcements.

Kenworth's new T880

Kenworth latest, the T880, is the successor to the venerable T800. It features the same 2.1-meter-wide cab as the T680, and can accommodate heavy front and rear axles as well as multi-axle set ups. It comes standard with the MX13 engine with ratings up to 500 hp and 1850 lb.

Kenworth unveiled the versatile T880 at the Mid-America Trucking Show in March. It can be configured to do almost anything, from heavy-haul to a straight truck. It's the successor-in-waiting to the venerable T800 which has been in service for more than 20 years. Kenworth has no immediate plans to phase out the T800.
