AM General Tops Reader Poll for Next USPS Mail Truck

May 14, 2018

The U.S. Postal Service isn’t saying which of five prototype vehicles will win a $6-billion contract to become its next mail truck. But Trucks.com readers favor the offering from AM General.

The USPS is seeking a replacement for about 180,000 trucks in its aging fleet. The program is called the Next Generation Delivery Vehicle, or NGDV

The design from the South Bend, Ind., manufacturer garnered the most support in a more than 35,000-vote reader poll by Trucks.com. The AM General truck collected nearly 13,000 votes, or 36 percent of the total. The vehicle is powered by an internal-combustion engine with fuel-efficient start-stop technology.

Its nearest competitors were Indian manufacturer Mahindra, whose truck earned 29 percent of the total vote, and a joint venture from Karsan and Morgan Olson at 21 percent.

So your going to let people who read a truck magazine and answer a poll but have never delivered mail decide which truck we get . Now you know why shit doesn’t work you ask the wrong dam people.
