ABOUT THE NATIONAL TRUCK SUMMIT

The demand for pickup trucks, SUVs and crossovers is at an all time high. With lower fuel costs and the capability and flexibility these vehicles offer, popularity in the segment continues to grow. Nowhere is this more apparent than Minnesota where new vehicle sales of light trucks, SUVs and crossover are far above the national average.

On the eve of the Twin Cities Auto Show, Automotive News and the Twin Cities Auto Show will highlight the nation’s passion for pickup trucks, SUVs and crossovers through
discussion and demonstration. Join us for discussions from industry leaders on the past and future of the segment.

 

ABOUT THE LIFT GARAGE

Donations will be collected during registration and at the National Truck Summit and Twin Cities Auto Show Preview Celebration.

The Lift Garage is a nonprofit auto repair shop that provides low cost car repair to low income Minnesotans.  The Lift focuses exclusively on safety and drivability and is all about moving customers out of poverty and into more secure lives. The Lift charges $15/hour for labor and parts at cost which means that customers at The Lift save about 65% on the cost of auto repairs. The customers of The Lift must make at or below 150% of Federal Poverty Guideline to qualify (i.e. $18700 for a household of one).
