That's the sort of technology that makes fuel companies cringe!
yeah. that's going to keep the shop mechanics busy. Going to start hiring computer geeks for drivers.
It's been a long time since i thought of the [Don;t you buy no ugly truck] add!! Bud in Wheeler,Mi.
Air bearings are used in most large airliner air conditioning units. The 'air cycle machine' bearings are air bearings. Don't ask me how they work, they just do.
Unique looking truck. Now everyone is going to want one.

Amazing technology! I still don't like the idea of not having the instruments directly in front of the driver, and the center seating position is not practical. A very interesting concept vehicle though. The trailer should be ready to go now; a 4,000 lb weight saving? Wow. Pricey though, I'll bet.
I think Ford tried that many years ago?? The fancy trailer will be nice and save weight until a idiot and a forklift hits it!! Bud in Wheeler,Mi.
You can tell the men from the boys by the price of their toys. On this basis, it looks like Walmart is a real he-man!
I seriously doubt you will see Walmart make a significant capital investment in carbon fiber trailers - let alone the prototype truck.
This is merely a marketing ploy.
Walmart could easily utilize waste oil collected at its' express lube stores to heat water & fuel furnaces.
