CAT back in the on-road truck market??

I saw a rig that I have never seen before near my place, hauling a 53-footer...
Big chrome CAT letters in the grille...

Sadly I didn't have time to snap a pic!

Is Caterpillar back in the on-road game?

the max line isn't really all that gutless, but the throttle response is so terribly slow that it feels like nothings happening. I've run across the USA a couple times with a maxforce and very few trucks passed me on the hills or flats. 80,000 and 71 mph
