Beware of the ‘dog
The Pinnacle is a great product to sell, and the long-haul segment has money and a developing need, especially with one of the plush sleeper options you’ll find on a Pinnacle. Mack’s new GuardDog Connect remote diagnostics capabilities make it a great fit for fleets nationwide.
Volvo Group, of which Mack is a member, has a stated goal of being the global leader in trucking. That’s possible. And it’s likely. Eventually.
But it’s going to take igniting a long-haul sales effort, capturing regional fleets and the rekindling of the construction segment.
When will Mack’s marketshare hit double digits? I don’t know. I would expect 2016 to 2017 – just to give automatic transmissions more time to marinate industrywide and for fleets to become more familiar with Mack’s suspension design – but sooner rather than later for sure.
Don’t doubt the Bulldog.
This dog will have its day.
