Capacity is at it again – securing its reputation for being the first to deliver a number of new technologies and services to the cargo industry. Capacity’s impressive list of “firsts” began in 1992 when Capacity launched the first Real Independent Rear Suspension; but it didn’t stop there. By focusing on alternative fuel technologies, Capacity is now the first terminal truck manufacturer to offer more engine options than any other manufacturer. This customizable solution is guiding them all the way into 2012 and well into 2013.
A few years ago Capacity began exploring hybrid vehicle technology. Today, they are excited about what’s in store for the coming years. “By the end of 2013 we will be offering 3 new eco-friendly engine options including the first ever zero emission terminal truck powered by hydrogen fuel cell technology,” said Jerry Looney, Vice President of Sales and Marketing. “Also in development are our Propane Hybrid – due to debut late 2012 and a GM V8 Propane engine that will be offered before the end of 2013.”
Just last year, Capacity was the first to deliver a truck with a Ford V10 engine that can run on either gas or propane.
In 2007, Capacity was the first in their industry to deliver a CNG/LNG to the market with a Cummins Westport Engine. In 2010, Capacity was the first to offer a 10 Year Frame Warranty, Road Speed Governing with the Capacity Fuel Saver Technology, and was the first to develop a Diesel/Electric Hybrid engine. In addition, Capacity was the first to offer a Non SCR On Road Engine option in the Navistar Maxxforce 7 with 2010 Emissions.
Capacity’s well-earned reputation for its game-changing technologies, outstanding customer service and extensive dealer network, has made them the No. 1 choice for operators at ports, warehouse & distribution centers, rail yards and shipping terminals. With a new list of game-changing goals in mind, Capacity is poised for a future filled with “firsts.”
