New Mack Granite at Truck World

Mack Trucks Class 8 vehicles on display at Truck World 2018 in Toronto highlighted fuel efficiency, driver comfort and up-time. Visitors to Mack’s booth at the International Centre had the opportunity to experience five Mack Anthem® models and the Mack® Granite® model.
All of the Mack models on display came standard with Mack GuardDog® Connect. GuardDog Connect proactively monitors the truck’s performance, identifying any critical fault codes or diagnostic needs and alerting Mack’s OneCall™ uptime agents at Mack’s 24/7 Uptime Center in Greensboro, North Carolina. Using the Mack ASIST web-based service management system, agents can diagnose issues, schedule repairs and confirm parts availability while the truck is still on the road, maximizing up-time. GuardDog Connect also enables the newest addition to Mack’s uptime solutions. Mack Over The Air, available on Mack models equipped with Mack 2017 and newer engines, delivers software updates directly to customers with minimal interruptions to their operations.
Mack’s uptime services and solutions are a part of Mack Connect, a complete suite of tools that integrates intelligent software, predictive analytics and driver assist technologies to help customers manage productivity and profitability.
