Not your daddy's suspension

Mack Trucks rolled out a new Twin Y suspension. The suspension system boasts a 403 pound weight savings, a smoother ride and extends tire life by 25 percent according to Mack.

It's amazing to see this suspension system in action. Here check out the video Mack showed us at the press conference.

When they talk weight savings, they mean it too. The Twin Y was light enough that I conned Associate Editor Dave Tanner into picking up the part. No big deal.

The other cool thing about this suspension system. There is no additional cost associated with spec'ing that system.
