NEW TRUCK DELIVERY - A & K Groves

Sommer Denning - Wednesday, September 23, 2020

 

NEW TRUCK DELIVERY

For A & K Groves!

When Andrew and Kate Groves walked through our door to discuss the purchase of a new truck we knew it was going to be a special!

This is their FIRST new Kenworth to continue the Groves dynasty into its third generation.

It was with immense pleasure that we went through the process of turning Andrew’s dream truck into a reality.

Working with them, we determined the best truck suited to their application was the hardworking T659 fitted with Meritor axles. No detail was overlooked.  Knowing that the mechanical side of this truck was sound Andrew wanted it also to look smart! It was beautifully sign written by Auto FX to complement the classic white styling with a tough looking Kenworth Factory fit Bar.

Inland Truck centres would like to congratulate Andrew and Kate, we look forward to working with you over the life of your truck. Welcome to the Kenworth Family!

NEW TRUCK DELIVERY

For IORPetroleum

Another truck ready to be put to work in some of the harshest conditions in Australia. This tough Kenworth T659 will be pulling a quad train on the corrugations and rough unsealed roads of the outback of  NSW, SA & QLD

Supplying fuel to some of the most remote places in the country, IOR is a vital resource for fuelling Australia and keeping us on the road!

With IOR’S extensive knowledge of the outback and Chris McDevitt’s experience with the Kenworth product, we worked together to custom build this beast.

To complete this prime mover it was fitted with a huge 5 post Kingbar for maximum protection, stylish red painted tanks, conveyer guards, rack icepack and fuel cooler. It will surely be a smooth ride on the super singles.

Thanks to the IOR team for choosing Inland Truck Centres and Kenworth as their truck of choice to supply fuel to the outback.

DAF XF & CF Wins Best in Class Accolade

Sommer Denning - Friday, September 11, 2020

 

DAF XF and CF Wins Best in Class Accolade

Today, the DAF XF and CF model range was announced as the winner of Australia’s peak international design awards during the 2020 Good Design Week, the highest honour for design and innovation in the country. DAF Trucks Australia received the prestigious Good Design Award Best in Class Accolade in the Product Design Automotive and Transport category in recognition for outstanding design and innovation.

The annual Good Design Awards is Australia’s oldest and most prestigious international Awards for design and innovation with a proud history dating back to 1958. The Awards celebrate the best new products and services on the Australian market, excellence in architectural design, engineering, fashion, digital and communication design, design strategy, social impact design and young designers.

More than 55 Good Design Awards Jurors evaluated each entry according to a strict set of design criteria which covers ‘good design’, ‘design innovation’ and ‘design impact’. Projects recognised with a Good Design Award must demonstrate excellence in good design and convince the Jury they are worthy of recognition at this level.

Mr Felipe Rubio, General Manager of DAF Trucks Australia, was excited to accept the Best in Class Good Design Award, commenting, “The DAF XF and CF model range, released in Australia in February 2020, has set a new benchmark for excellence in safety, fuel efficiency, driver comfort and exterior styling for the Australian heavy-duty truck market, and this accolade is further evidence that our new truck models are setting industry standards.”

The Good Design Awards Jury praised DAF Trucks Australia, commenting, “This sets a new industry standard for truck style, function, safety, sustainability and performance. Innovative thinking has resulted in a truck that has a positive impact on the end-user, business and environment. The design offers a clever combination of aerodynamic styling and features as well as powertrain refinements that have delivered a vehicle that is cleaner for the environment, yet offers better performance.

Australian and Dutch engineers have worked closely together to validate the new vehicles for local conditions. Designers have developed an innovative range of smart solutions, one example is the integrated exterior styling that improves aerodynamics and disguises the unique protective cab suspension and construction system - very clever! The styling solves the technical challenges of improving fuel efficiency whilst developing innovative frontal collision absorption mounts that protect the occupants.

The interior design is more car-like, adding to the sophistication and refinement of the truck. The interior design is purposeful with a thoughtful ergonomic layout, opportunities for customisation, use of tough durable materials and superior NHV qualities. These features ensure the end-user enjoys the creature comforts and features expected of a modern vehicle.

Clearly, PACCAR has set a vision to develop the DAF truck with a level of sophistication, safety and performance that will appeal to the end-user, ensuring the DAF brand continues to be a market leader and commercial success.” Dr Brandon Gien, CEO of Good Design Australia said, “Receiving a Good Design Award is a significant achievement given the very high calibre and record number of entries received in 2020.”  “There’s no doubt it has been a really tough year for everyone so it’s nice to be able to share some good news for a change. The projects represented in this year’s Good Design Awards shine a positive light on our creative and innovative capacity as human beings. These inspirational winning projects give me hope and optimism that our design community will continue to innovate, no matter how challenging the world around us is,” said Dr Gien.

“Australia’s Good Design Award is more than a symbol of design excellence - it represents the hard work and dedication towards an innovative outcome that will ultimately make our lives better. These projects showcase the shear brilliance of design and the potential it has to improve our world,” said Dr Gien.

The 2020 Good Design Awards attracted a record number of submissions with an astonishing 835 design projects evaluated in this year’s international design awards.
