Spec'ing for Vehicle Weight Reduction & Maximizing Payload Efficiencies


There’s little argument among fleet managers and upfitters — spec’ing a truck or van is a complicated process involving numerous decisions and considerations that take time and careful planning.

Of the dozens of decisions that need to be made, vehicle weight is among the crucial considerations that isn't always fully evaluated before a vehicle order is made. A truck or van spec may give special attention on lightweight body materials to save weight, but less lightweighting attention to upfit components, e.g., bins, racks, or a crane, that will also impact weight. The vehicle body and upfit components must be part of the lightweighting equation to achieve overall efficiency.

The new Chevrolet Media Silverados are a big surprise for commercial truck customers.



The new Chevrolet Media Silverados are a big surprise for commercial truck customers. 

After mocking the introduction of the first Silverado brand of class 4 and 5 of medium-duty chassis cabins a couple of months ago, Chevy showed up at The Work Truck Show in Indianapolis on Wednesday with a Class 6 version in tow. That puts the automaker with Ford in each segment of trucks in Class 7. The new Silverado 4500, 5500 and 6500 were developed in partnership with Navistar and mark the return of Chevrolet to the medium-service segment with an internally designed model after an absence of 10 years. It has been filling the void in recent years with Isuzu retro-style low pickups.

The Silverados are powered by a version of the existing 6.6-liter Duramax V8 from Chevy that has been designed to produce 350 hp and 700 pounds of torque in this application. That's 50 horsepower more than the F-series trucks and the same amount of torque, but the Silverado 6500 has a maximum of 22,500 pounds of gross vehicular weight GVWR while the F-650 is available in a version with a GVWR higher than 29,000 pounds.

Chevy is trumpeting other design features it hopes will help its trucks stay separate, including a factory-painted flat frame with wiring inserted inside to simplify accessories, an available rear air suspension system and a sloping composite hood of light front. Interior amenities include the Chevy Apple CarPlay and the infotainment system equipped with Android Auto and an integrated 4G Wi-Fi hotspot.

GMC Introduces the Next Generation 2019 Sierra


Commanding design, segment-leading technologies 
redefine premium truck

2019 GMC Sierra Denali

DETROIT — GMC is taking its most popular pickup truck to the next level with the completely redesigned 2019 Sierra Denali and SLT.

Distinguished by bold design and segment-leading technologies, the next generation Sierra Denali once again redefines the premium pickup, while advancing Denali’s legacy as the pinnacle of GMC design, capability and refinement.

“GMC ignited the premium truck segment 17 years ago with the original launch of the Sierra Denali,” said Duncan Aldred, vice president of Global GMC. “The next generation 2019 Sierra Denali establishes a new benchmark in capability and refinement. It exemplifies precision in every detail.”

Powerful proportions and distinctive Denali design help define the Sierra’s unmistakable exterior, while the driver-focused cabin strengthens the brand’s reputation for refinement with premium materials, improved interior space and innovative storage solutions. 

The 2019 Sierra Denali affirms its position as the most premium Sierra ever with segment-leading technologies and exclusive features, including:

•    GMC Exclusive, Industry-first MultiPro Tailgate is the most innovative pickup tailgate ever, with six unique functions and positions offering enhanced second-tier loading and load-stop solutions, a standing workstation and easier access to items in the box.
•    GMC Exclusive, Industry-first Carbon Fiber Pickup Box, the CarbonPro, was developed to increase durability, efficiency and functionality while offering best-in-class dent, scratch and corrosion resistance, making it the most durable pickup box in the segment.
•    All-new ProGrade Trailering System with Trailering App offers a connected comprehensive suite of trailering technology that brings more confidence to the towing experience than ever before.
•    Segment-first Multi-Color Head-Up Display projects key, customizable vehicle data on the windshield in a 3x7-inch display to help drivers keep their eyes on the road.
•    Segment-first Rear Camera Mirror offers an optimized view via an available dual-function interior mirror that expands vision to overcome common visual obstructions like occupants or cargo. This next generation system features a higher resolution camera and display and the ability to tilt or zoom the view. 

The redesigned Sierra Denali offers a full suite of available advanced safety features, along with exclusive chassis technologies such as Adaptive Ride Control.

“The heritage of the GMC brand is rooted in full-size trucks, of which the Sierra is our cornerstone, with our SLT and Denali models contributing 87 percent of our total crew cab sales,” Aldred said. “The next generation Sierra caters to these unique customers who demand a premium, innovative truck that supports their professional and personal passions.”

A commanding presence
The 2019 Sierra Denali debuts a profound new GMC design. A taller, more confident stance gives Sierra Denali powerful proportions complemented by hallmark details such as a chrome grille with a sharp, precise dimensional pattern that epitomizes the truck’s attention to detail.

“The next generation Sierra Denali has a deliberate, commanding presence,” said Matt Noone, director of design, GMC Exteriors. “Its unmistakable design embodies the essence of GMC, while advancing the brand’s core styling elements — rooted in inherent capability — with a new expression of its signature cues.”

Sierra shows refinement and strength through a larger, more-dominant upright grille, a taller hood, and a bolder, more pronounced take on GMC’s C-shaped lighting signature.

Advanced lighting technology distinguishes the Sierra Denali from every other truck on the road. GMC’s front lighting signature is conveyed through a prominent “light blade” that delivers uniform LED illumination for the daytime running lamps. LEDs are also used for the headlamps, taillamps, fog lamps and other illuminative elements, with lenses constructed from durable material with an almost crystalline quality.

The truck is larger than the previous truck in virtually every dimension, and the larger grille and dramatic lighting accentuate its broad-shouldered stance. The wheels are pushed closer to the corners and wear larger diameter tires. Denali features available 22-inch Ultra Bright aluminum wheels; the SLT model offers its own unique 22-inch dark aluminum wheels finished with chrome accents.

New, more prominent badging includes a bold DENALI nameplate on the tailgate —expressed in a new block-style typeface that echoes the truck’s strong proportions — below the signature GMC identification.

An elevated interior refined
The Sierra Denali’s new interior builds on the refinement and sophistication that have become synonymous with Denali, topping the segment with best-in-class front head- and legroom (maximum), providing a more spacious, driver-centric environment finished with premium materials. 

Putting the driver at the center of experience starts with a higher seating position that offers a confident view behind the wheel. The optimized ergonomics emphasize easy, intuitive interaction with the vehicle’s technologies, such as the all-new Trailering App and segment-first Head-Up Display.

Denali-exclusive materials — including premium leather-appointed seating, authentic open-pore wood trim and dark-finish aluminum decor — help raise the interior to a new level of refinement. The exclusive leather appointments have a distinctive, large-pebbled grain with a contrasting stitch pattern that is both premium in appearance and touch without sacrificing durability, and the wood trim features an open-pore texture evocative of hand-planed furniture.   

When it comes to the space and storage vital to truck customers, the 2019 Sierra’s crew cab has nearly 3 inches of additional rear-seat legroom compared to the current model. The outboard rear seat backs open to reveal rectangular storage spaces large enough for storing tablets or laptops, tie-down cords, umbrellas or other important accessories.

Groundbreaking cargo box capability and materials
The next generation 2019 Sierra debuts a GMC exclusive, industry-first MultiPro Tailgate that is the segment’s most innovative tailgate ever. Standard on SLT and Denali, the MultiPro Tailgate features six unique functions and positions, offering enhanced second-tier loading and load-stop solutions, a standing workstation mode and easier access to items in the box.

The MultiPro Tailgate also incorporates a step entry and egress mode that, when paired with the assist handle, offers both step and seated functionality, with a maximum weight capacity of 375 pounds (170 kg). Ease of use is enhanced with two buttons on the tailgate handle that allow convenient inner gate release.

This multifunctional tailgate offers proven strength and durability, having undergone more testing and validation than any tailgate in GM’s history. Sierra is the first and only truck to offer the MultiPro Tailgate, providing premium truck customers the ultimate flexibility. MultiPro Tailgate will be standard on Denali and SLT.

The cargo boxes also offer best-in-class cargo volume — 63 cubic feet (1,784 liters) on the short box, as well as additional tie-downs and a new, available 110-volt power outlet. The bed continues to be made of roll-formed, high-strength steel, yet a revised alloy offers 50 percent more strength than the current model.

The 2019 Sierra Denali will offer, later in the model year, an available GMC exclusive and industry-first carbon fiber box — the CarbonPro — developed to increase durability, efficiency and functionality of the truck. It replaces the standard steel inner panels and floor with a lightweight, purpose-designed carbon fiber composite that offers best-in-class dent, scratch and corrosion resistance, making it the most durable pickup box in the segment.

“In 116 years of making GMC pickup trucks, our industry-first carbon fiber box is the toughest and most durable pickup box we have ever made,” Aldred said.

The new CarbonPro box is 62 pounds (28 kg) lighter than the steel version, and is one example of GMC’s strategic use of materials in engineering the Sierra. The strategy also incorporates aluminum for the doors, hood and tailgate, while relying on steel for the fenders, roof and standard cargo box to shave up to 360 pounds (163 kg) from Sierra compared today’s model.

ProGrade Trailering System with Trailering App
The 2019 Sierra offers a more confident towing experience thanks to GMC’s new ProGrade Trailering System, standard on Denali and SLT. The trailering system includes an all-new Trailering App featuring a Pre-Departure checklist, Maintenance Reminders, Trailer Light Test, Trailer Electrical Diagnostics and Trailer Tire Pressure and Temperature Monitoring.

Many of the Trailering App’s functions, including the lighting test and pre-departure checklist, are also available with the MyGMC app on compatible Android and iOS smartphones, a feature that offers great convenience when outside the truck or trailer.

The next generation Sierra also offers Hitch Guidance with Hitch View and Auto Electric Park Brake to help with perfect positioning when hitching. The available side view cameras and a trailer-mounted HD camera provide additional assistance when driving down the road or in reverse. With exclusive Trailer Theft Detection, owners can receive text and mobile alerts from OnStar when the trailer has been detached from the truck without permission.   

Purposeful technologies
Seamless, driver-focused technology has long been a Denali standard, and the 2019 Sierra Denali establishes a new benchmark by incorporating purposeful technologies.

These technologies work together to increase functionality and enhance comfort and convenience. Highlights include:

•    Segment-first Multi-color 3x7 Head-Up Display: The 2019 Sierra is the first full-size truck to offer this technology, which projects key vehicle information on the windshield within the driver’s line of sight.
•    Advanced GMC infotainment: This new, dynamic platform offers a smartphone-like experience with an intuitive interface, faster response and improved voice recognition. Sierra Denali’s standard 8-inch diagonal system includes navigation. 
•    Segment-first Rear Camera Mirror: This available dual-function interior mirror offers an optimized camera view that can help the driver’s view around potential vision obstructions such as occupants or cargo, while also offering a greater field of vision. This next gen system features a higher resolution camera, a higher resolution display and the ability to tilt or zoom the view. A conventional mirror view is also available.
•    Surround Vision: Offering a bird’s-eye view of the truck, this available feature displays an overhead image on the infotainment screen, helping the driver detect potential obstacles when backing up, including when trailering.
•    Full suite of advanced safety features: The 2019 Sierra Denali offers a full range of available advanced safety features, including Side Blind Zone Alert, Pedestrian Detection and Low Speed Forward Automatic Braking.

Sierra performance
New versions of the proven 6.2L and 5.3L V-8 engines will be joined by an all-new 3.0L inline-six turbo-diesel engine, expanding the powertrain lineup for the 2019 Sierra.

The 5.3L and 6.2L engines feature stop/start technology and new Dynamic Fuel Management that enables the engine to operate on one to eight cylinders, depending on demand, to optimize power and efficiency. The new diesel builds on GMC’s expertise with Duramax turbo-diesels offered in Sierra HD and Canyon models. The available 6.2L and 3.0L engines are paired with a 10-speed automatic transmission.

Sierra Denali features an exclusive Adaptive Ride Control suspension system designed to provide premium driving refinement with exceptional responsiveness. It employs sophisticated sensors to monitor road conditions and chassis responses in real time, enabling adjustments to active dampers every 2 milliseconds.

Coming this fall
The 2019 GMC Sierra Denali and SLT go on sale this fall. Additional details will be released closer to the start of production.

Coolest truck bed cargo box I have ever seen by Cargo Glide : SEMA 2017



While at SEMA 2017 I spotted this amazing cargo box on a slide out system for trucks and vans. This thing slides out incredibly far transforming your truck into a "command center".

For marksmen, it can hold all your firearms, ammo, targets and support gear.

 If you are a tradesman you can clearly see the possibilities. I especially like the roof top cargo rack that slides over to the side and down so you don't need to climb into your truck bed to access your gear. CargoGlide also makes slide out racks for vans and other pickups.

Ford Uses Allen Park Climatic Wind Tunnel to Prepare Vehicles for Winter




DEARBORN, Mich., – With Old Man Winter on his way, Ford vehicles are ready to meet the harsh demands of extreme cold and heavy snow. That, in large part, is thanks to the company’s climatic wind tunnel, which tests the winter-readiness and reliability of Ford vehicles in blizzard-like conditions. Ford moved snow testing to the Allen Park, Michigan facility in 2006.

Engineers bring the outdoors in

The climatic wind tunnel allows Ford to take cold weather testing off the roads and conduct it inside, where engineers can replicate wintry conditions year-round. At the facility, all Ford vehicles – from F-150 to Fiesta – are subjected to worst-case winter scenarios so they are prepared to navigate snowstorms.

Engineers simulate conditions from extreme freezing to blistering desert temperatures, from as low as minus 40 degrees Fahrenheit to as high as 130 degrees Fahrenheit. Wind testing conditions can reach hurricane-like speeds of up to 125 mph, blowing snow at the front of the vehicle to simulate a blizzard.

To simulate worst-case scenarios, Ford vehicles are required to carry a full load of passengers and cargo. Some are made to tow heavy loads in these conditions.

Since snow can choke a vehicle’s engine, engineers continuously monitor air intake. The team also checks whether shift linkages freeze up, and where on the vehicle snow accumulates.

Besides a four-hour test in the climatic wind tunnel, Ford vehicles also undergo two days of snow-related testing in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan, near Sault Ste. Marie.

Equipped for slip

Ford prepares its vehicles to conquer winter with a stellar set of features, including a heated steering wheel, and heated front and rear seats available for Ford Explorer, as well as front and rear camera washers.

What’s more, Explorer’s intelligent four-wheel drive with Terrain Management System™ reassesses conditions about 20 times faster than the blink of an eye, providing precise handling and traction. The driver uses a dial on the center console to shift on the fly, selecting among four terrain management modes – normal, sand, mud and, of course, snow.

Ultimately, these features, along with the performance and endurance tests all Ford vehicles undergo, help ensure each one will perform safely and reliably – no matter the weather.

About Ford Motor Company

Ford Motor Company, a global automotive industry leader based in Dearborn, Mich., manufactures or distributes automobiles across six continents. With about 197,000 employees and 67 plants worldwide, the company’s automotive brands include Ford and Lincoln. The company provides financial services through Ford Motor Credit Company.

Ampliroll Product Spotlight: Sparks, Nevada Takes Delivery of a 65,000-lb. Hooklift System/24.5-ton Crane “Package”

Needing a hooklift system/mobile crane combination for use in its municipal storm clean-up operations, the city of Sparks, Nevada reached out to Ampliroll for a 65,000-lb. hooklift system and an Ampliroll-branded 24.5-ton crane body.

 


In selecting the package, the suburb of 90,000-plus just east of Reno took advantage of Ampliroll’s engineering expertise in general, and its hydraulic crane experience in particular. Ampliroll is owned by Fassi Group — one of the world’s leading manufacturers of hydraulic cranes. Of course, all Ampliroll hook loader/crane combinations are carefully evaluated for use by the company’s engineering staff in the United States.

With the Ampliroll Hooklift System/Ampliroll Body package, the municipality gains remarkable flexibility … and considerable value. When the crane is not required, it’s disconnected from the hook loader hydraulic system, removed and stored onsite for future use. The time required? About five minutes!

 


Crane operations are just one of the many uses the city of Sparks has found for its new hook loader system — the second they’ve purchased from Enoven Truck Body & Equipment, an Ampliroll dealer located in West Sacramento, California. With the quick removal of the 24.5 ton meter crane, the Ampliroll Hooklift-equipped flatbed is ready to roll on another body for its next job assignment.
This example of a hard-working hook loader/crane combination is just one of many others that have been successfully engineered, fabricated and installed by Ampliroll through its nationwide dealer network.

Other municipalities and companies are encouraged to take advantage of the engineering expertise and worldwide resources of Ampliroll and Fassi Group. For these users, the hooklift system/changeable body concept is a proven way to save money by re-purposing a single Ampliroll-equipped truck chassis for multiple jobs as needed.

For selection, savings and service, make Ampliroll your first choice in hydraulic hook lift systems. 


Ampliroll Hooklift Systems are manufactured by Marrel – the inventor of hooklifts in 1969 and first again in bringing them to users across the U.S. in 1980. Today, Ampliroll is the nation’s leading provider of hooklift systems.

The Renewable Gas Supply Issue

Renewable Gas Pump0

For several years there have been significant efforts to capture and divert fugitive renewable gases toward the transportation sector where, as a replacement for diesel in heavy duty vehicles, the fuel can do tremendous good. This is particularly true in California where many progressive policies have been passed to divert organic waste from traditional, unsustainable disposal methods and reduce emissions of climate-altering short lived climate pollutants.

However, some opponents of using renewable natural gas (RNG) as a transportation fuel question whether there is enough supply of renewable gas. The doubts that they raise about supply lead them to conclude that RNG is not an energy source that should be taken seriously.

Supply vs. Demand
Some claim that policy makers should not invest resources in developing the markets for renewable gas, particularly in the transportation sector, in part because the supply of renewable gas in the state will never match the demand, and will only be capable of replacing a small fraction of the fuel consumption that is currently fed by fossil gas. They point to recent studies that suggest the potential quantity of economically recoverable gas in California is no more than ten percent of the fuel demand in the transportation sector.

Tire Maintenance: It’s Not Just Checking Tire Pressure


This truck demonstrates uneven treads on dual tires. Photo by Les Smart.


You have built a $3 to $30 million business over one or more generations, and you are making an appropriate profit most years. Do you think about liability? I bet you do, but do you relate that to tire failures and more specifically to catastrophic tire failures? What happens to your business if a worn, damaged tire fails at speed — it doesn’t even have to be high speed — and your driver loses control of your fleet vehicle and it plows into another vehicle?

If one or more of the occupants is a young to middle-aged passenger, especially a working mother or father, your liability skyrockets. I like to call this the $5 million accident. You don’t want to lose your business in the event of one of these failures just because you were lax in making sure that your tires were in good condition. Let’s see what you can do to avoid this type of situation where your tires are concerned.

INTRODUCING THE ALL-NEW 2019 CHEVROLET SILVERADO

The all-new 2019 Silverado High Country features an exclusive front grille design with two-tone chrome and bronze finish and body-color accents, plus chrome assist steps from wheel to wheel. It also includes the power up/down tailgate as standard equipment.

Next-Gen Silverado Revealed at Chevy Truck Centennial Event
All-new 2019 Silverado builds on 100 years of Chevy Truck expertise

DALLAS — The past and future met today with the introduction of the next-generation Chevrolet Silverado at an event celebrating the first 100 years of Chevy Trucks. Many in attendance were Chevy Truck Legends members, some of the brand’s most passionate owners.

“Our owners’ passion for Chevrolet trucks is truly humbling,” said Alan Batey, president of GM North America, and global head of Chevrolet. “Many of our owners depend on their trucks for work and play, personalize their trucks in astonishing ways and pass their loyalty for Chevy Trucks down from generation to generation.

“For the Chevy Truck Centennial, we wanted to recognize the customers who have made Chevrolet part of their lives, and have them help kick off the next 100 years of Chevy Trucks.” 

The 2019 Silverado 1500 is all new from the ground up and leverages Chevrolet’s experience building more than 85 million dependable, long-lasting pickups. It also reflects feedback from more than 7,000 people on what they wanted in their next truck — the most customer research in the company’s history.

The 2019 Silverado’s strong, modern design advances Chevrolet’s history of industry-leading pickup design. It’s a legacy built on decades of experience with models such as the Advance Design trucks of the 1950s and the C/K series of the 1960s. Those trucks set the standard for pickup design in their eras, and currently are some of the most coveted vintage trucks on the market. The next-generation Silverado is poised to change the face of trucks again, with a breakthrough design that is unmistakably Chevrolet.  

The new Silverado also delivers improved capability and performance. For example, a higher-grade alloy is used in the roll-formed, high-strength-steel bed floor, contributing to a bed that is more functional and lighter weight. This use of mixed materials and advanced manufacturing is evident throughout the Silverado, resulting in a significant reduction in total vehicle weight and improved performance in many measures.  
As no two truck customers are alike, the next-gen Silverado will offer an expanded range of models, more engine/transmission combinations and more technology and convenience features to help customers find their ideal truck.

The new Silverado LT Trailboss is one of eight 2019 Silverado models. It integrates the off-road equipment of the Z71 package as well as a two-inch suspension lift. Unlike aftermarket lift kits, the Trailboss suspension is fully tested, validated and warrantied by Chevrolet.
The 2019 Silverado will make its public debut in January at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit, exactly 100 years after the first Chevrolet trucks were delivered to customers.


ABOUT CHEVROLET
Founded in 1911 in Detroit, Chevrolet is one of the world's largest car brands, doing business in more than 100 countries and selling more than 4.0 million cars and trucks a year. Chevrolet provides customers with fuel-efficient vehicles that feature engaging performance, design that makes the heart beat, passive and active safety features and easy-to-use technology, all at a value.

The Transportation Sector’s Near Zero Emission Future is Dawning

Greenkraft facility in Santa Ana building near-zero emission trucks

The U.S. transportation market continues to innovate with the proliferation of near zero emission technologies. These advancements, combined with advancements from the electric vehicle sector, will continue to push the transportation market towards a cleaner future.

Near zero emission technology advancements will play an extremely important role in the achievement of nearly every major public policy having to do with transportation, air quality, and energy. Tackling emissions from the transportation sector are a necessity considering that more than 50% of Americans are exposed to unhealthy air, putting them at greater risk for asthma, lung cancer, cardiovascular disease, and premature death. In areas with the most severe air quality problems, achieving healthy air quality will require a transition of heavy-duty vehicles to ones that emit zero or near-zero emissions.

Tomorrow’s Engine Technology Available Today
In recent months, we have seen headline after headline announcing new ultra-clean vehicle technology.

Advanced clean heavy-duty vehicles are geared up to transform the nation’s fleet.

Most recently, Greenkraft Inc., a California-based manufacturer of alternative fuel systems and trucks,  certified its 8 liter V8 fuel-injected engine at a NOx emissions standard of 0.02 g/bhp-hr, which is 90% cleaner than the current emissions standard set by the California Air Resources Board. The engine works with three different fuel types – compressed natural gas (CNG), propane autogas (LPG), and gasoline. This is the first engine to be certified at near-zero NOx emissions on three different fuels. Greenkraft offers the engine as a standalone product or in one of Greenkraft’s heavy-duty commercial trucks.

Earlier this year, Michigan-based ROUSH CleanTech certified its 6.8 liter V10 propane engine to 0.05 g/bhp-hr, which is 75% cleaner than the current emissions standard. These engines are now being installed in Type C Blue Bird Vision school buses and Class 4 to Class 7 Ford commercial trucks and step vans. According to Blue Bird, their propane school bus is the industry leader for lowest total cost of ownership and hassle-free maintenance, while creating a cleaner and safer environment.

Back in 2015, Cummins Westport started this ultra-clean engine trend with a certification of an 8.9 liter engine to 0.02 g/bhp-hr, referred to as the ISL G Near Zero. In addition to the dramatic 90% reduction in NOx compared to even the cleanest of engines, the near zero emission Cummins Westport engine features Closed Crankcase Ventilation (CCV) capable of reducing engine related methane emissions by 70%. The company expects to certify a 12 liter version of their near zero emission engine in 2018, the ISX12N, and a 6 liter product, the B6.7N, soon thereafter.

Advanced Technologies on the Horizon
While near-zero emission technologies may be further down the path of commercial maturity, the market momentum for medium- and heavy-duty electric-drive technologies has continued to grow as evidenced by the recent onslaught of headlines from OEMs that are developing and commercializing products in response to increasing market demand in California and beyond.

Daimler, Mitsubishi Fuso, Navistar, and Peterbilt unveiled electric products in recent months. Companies like ADOMANI, BYD, and Motiv offer electric powertrains for several medium- and heavy-duty commercial applications. Tesla recently unveiled a battery-electric Class 8 long-haul truck. Start-up Nikola Motor Co. is developing a hydrogen fuel cell electric powertrain for long haul trucks, and Toyota Motor Co. recently unveiled a working prototype fuel cell drayage truck.

Creating Markets to Support a Zero and Near Zero Emission Future     
These engine technologies are becoming a reality, but to incite their widespread deployment, supporting markets and economics must be created. Fortunately, the timing is perfect – Volkswagen’s $2.925 billion in clean transportation funding looms close as states expect to open their first rounds of funding in 2018. As these funds must be used to deliver cost-effective NOx reductions, near-zero and zero emission engine technologies pose a viable solution to a future with cleaner air.

The combination of commercial availability from major OEMs, diverse technology options, environmental benefits, and the response from local regulations, advanced clean heavy-duty vehicles are geared up to transform the nation’s fleet.
