The US Postal Service on Tuesday unveiled a modern replacement for the iconic Grumman LLV mail truck that has been in use since the late 1980s.
The new design consists of a waist-high front hood that resembles the front beak of a duck in front of an extra-high windshield.
Oshkosh Defense has been contracted to build between 50,000 and 165,000 of the new trucks over the next 10 years — replacing vehicles that have been in service for as long as three decades, USPS said in a statement.
Oshkosh’s design is not completely finalized, USPS said. The initial order of trucks will cost $482 million, with the first vehicles expected to hit the roads in 2023.
