The Brisbane Truck Show, the largest event of its type in the southern hemisphere was held from May 25-28 in Brisbane, Queensland. Over the four days of the show more than 33,700 people attended, with record crowds on the Saturday making a beeline for ‘PACCAR World’ to see the Kenworth and DAF trucks. The main feature of the Kenworth stand was the recently-released T610 and T610SAR. At the DAF end of the stand, the new CF85 with 510Hp and the LF FAP were the key features. The Kenworth Legend 900 made its debut at the show and was a clear favourite among the crowd.
Additional exhibits from PACCAR Parts, included a Virtual Reality tour of a TRP store, and representation from PacLease and PACCAR Financial ensured PACCAR World was a popular destination for show patrons.
The Dealer sales teams were kept busy fielding truck enquiries, and promotional merchandise sales were at record levels.
