More than 60 companies have announced they will launch new work truck chassis, bodies, power systems, components, accessories and service equipment at The Work Truck Show 2011. Some of the truck and body manufacturers planning launches at the event include Ford Commercial Truck, Hino Trucks, Isuzu Commercial Truck of America Inc., Mitsubishi Fuso Truck of America Inc, Ram Trucks, Supreme Corp., Utilimaster Corp. and Western Star Trucks.

“The Work Truck Show continues to be the best place to find the latest work trucks and equipment for vocational fleets of all sizes,” said Steve Sill, NTEA convention chairman and president of Aspen Equipment Co. (Bloomington, MN). “As North America’s largest work truck event, it’s the perfect venue to check out what’s new and to compare products from a wide range of suppliers.”
Meantime, BAE Systems will launch its HybriDrive Parallel hybrid electric propulsion system for vocational trucks, and ROUSH CleanTech will introduce its dedicated liquid propane injection fuel system for the medium-duty truck market.

Many of these companies are participating in the New Product Spotlight and/or Green Product Showcase programs. These programs provide an online sneak preview of new products at the show.

And don’t forget: JOHN CLEESE will be there.

The Work Truck Show 2011 is held in conjunction with the 47th annual National Truck Equipment Association (NTEA) Convention, held this year at the Indiana Convention Center in Indianapolis. The show runs March 8-10, with educational programming (including the popular Green Truck Summit), beginning March 7.
