Is the Oshkosh NGDV Worthy of the USPS?
For the first time in decades, the United States Postal Service is getting a new mail truck to make deliveries. Since the late 1980s, the Grumman LLV has been faithfully serving the postal service, but now it is time for a change. It tools USPS some time to determine which manufacturer would be selected for the new contract, but Oshkosh Defense wound up winning out. So now, the Oshkosh Next Generation Delivery Vehicle will be a 21st-century mail truck.
The Oshkosh NGDV is not attractive
In terms of looks, the NGDV has a funny appearance. Most have compared its front-end to looking sort of like a duck bill. But, this truck is not designed to be pretty, it is built to be functional and practical. This mail truck has a massive front windshield which should help with visibility. And that is something mail carriers are likely to appreciate.
