Caterpillar has unveiled its first Cat Vocational Truck, the Cat CT660

…”Our goal was to design and manufacture the ideal truck, the truck that customers have always wanted for their specific vocational application,” said George Taylor, Director and General Manager of the Cat Global On-Highway Group, who leads the design, development and launch of the trucks. “So our design team paid extremely close attention to all of the customer input we gathered. Frankly, the team was inspired by the input and focused on making it a reality.”

The company spent hundreds of hours gathering input from customers, including vocational truck owners, fleet managers and drivers, to find out what they needed in their vocational trucks.

“As a result, we’re proud Caterpillar will deliver a new line of vocational trucks that our customers said they want and need; trucks that are built with the ideal specs and options for customers to choose from to create customized trucks that match their specific applications and work environments. And from the feedback we’re receiving today, I’d say we have more than accomplished our goal,” Taylor added….
