New electric and internal combustion commercial vehicles are among the dozens of products slated to debut during Work Truck Week® 2023. As North America’s largest work truck event, Work Truck Week has long been the launching pad for new commercial vehicles, bodies, equipment and technology — and 2023 is shaping up to be no different.
New products on tap for the event include EV and internal combustion chassis, truck bodies, accessories, auxiliary power solutions, electric PTOs, software, and snow and ice control equipment. To date, 25 companies have scheduled press conferences during Work Truck Week, including Bollinger Motors, Ford Pro, Hino Trucks, Isuzu Commercial Truck of America, Mack Trucks, Ram Commercial and Workhorse.
Exhibitors are showcasing some new products ahead of Work Truck Week through the Product Gallery at wtw23.mapyourshow.com. Register and create a WTW23 Planner to add exhibitors, products and educational sessions to a personalized calendar.
An hour before the main exhibit hall opens March 8–9, see what’s new from first-time exhibitors in New Exhibitor Pavilion. It’s located across from the Hall I Work Truck Show exhibit hall entrance.
Work Truck Week offers opportunities to look into the future of commercial vehicles. Green Truck Summit attendees can hear about upcoming emissions regulations, EV and ZEV advancements, future diesel engine technologies and government infrastructure initiatives. Learn what’s coming from leading commercial vehicle manufacturers during exclusive OEM and EV manufacturer update sessions offered as part of the educational conference. During these sessions, company representatives share technical information on their latest chassis specifications and designs, review body and equipment installation options, and provide insights into future commercial vehicle plans.
“The work truck industry is constantly innovating,” said Steve Carey, NTEA president & CEO. “I continue to be amazed at the amount of new and creative solutions on display each year.”
