    Would not surprise me due to the fact that AE buys in to all of the global warming/going green horse crap.

    I know UPS package runs several of them, and Fedex has a few, I figured it wouldn't be long. Price tag is high but fuel is cheaper.

    They are 400 hp w/automatics, at least the ones being sold around the country for buses and trucks at this time. Getting good driver reviews from companies using them.

    Just what they need at NOR...how about they do the test at CKV.....a nice sleepy place where NOBODY will notice and besides they have their own wrecker, when the test trucks breakdown, they can bring them a REAL TRUCK!

    Test trucks are rentals, they have nationwide centers to replace or repair in the event of a breakdown.
