Kenworth and Peterbilt demonstrated quickly that they are here to compete and they mean business. Both truck manufacturers, even though they are related through parent company Paccar, unveiled separate but equally awe-inspiring new truck models on Wednesday.
And even though we're among the lucky ones who got the first look at these stylish machines during Press Day at the Mid-America Trucking Show, we can't help but wonder what you'll think of them when you see them for yourself.
If you simply cannot wait to run your hands along the sweet fender lines, gaze upon the Paccar MX engines, and gaze upon the high-tech dash in the cockpit, here are a couple of videos to get the heart rate up.
After the Kenworth reveal, we moved off-site to a luncheon held by Peterbilt. We suspected from the company's recent ad campaign that something big was coming at MATS, but we didn't know exactly what it would be.
If the demonstrations from Kenworth and Peterbilt are any indication of how the rest of the 2012 show will go, we're all in for a treat. We'll bring you more reveals as they are revealed to us.
