Acela Truck Company, a new extreme-duty commercial truck chassis manufacturer, will showcase its line of 4x4 and 6x6 chassis, utility, crane, and service trucks for the utility and construction markets at the International Construction & Utility Equipment Exposition (ICUEE) in Louisville, Oct. 3-5, 2017.

Acela will be exhibiting its powerful line of on/off-highway, all-wheel drive vehicles during the show, that have successfully proven themselves in extreme environments like Alberta’s oil sands for more than seven years with a 96% documented uptime reliability rating. Show vehicles will showcase Brutus Truck Body service and crane bodies.

“We’re excited to introduce our superior line of extreme-duty trucks at to the utility and construction markets at ICUEE,” said David Ronsen, president of Acela Truck Company. “From its 46-inch tires up, the Acela Monterra line of trucks offer supreme maneuverability, durability, and customization. With a payload of up to 31,000 pounds, body-builder friendly configurations, and a price tag starting at $95,000 we feel the Monterra is the perfect all in one job site solution. There is simply no comparison in the North American market today.”

Acela’s core innovation is the development of a proprietary process of resetting the U.S. Army’s Family of Medium Tactical Vehicles (FMTV’s) to a near zero-mile/zero-hour condition. These trucks are then sold into commercial markets including oil and gas, mining, pipeline, heavy civil and forestry, where currently available chassis simply do not perform or survive.

FMTV’s were originally developed for the Department of Defense to withstand the harshest conditions during combat. They continue to achieve the US Army’s coveted “ultra-reliable” status for 17 years running. Acela Truck Company’s proprietary reset process completely restores FMTV’s specifically for commercial use. The company’s first model of trucks, the Monterra, boasts the industry’s most robust and dependable design features, including drivetrains, frames, axles, suspensions, tires and other components designed to withstand the rigors of the most extreme work environments on the planet.
