Paccar Launches Road-proven MX-11 Truck Engine in North America

 

Paccar is expanding its range of Paccar engines in North America with the introduction of the MX-11 engine, with an output of up to 430 horsepower and 1,550 pounds-feet of torque.

The Paccar MX-11, which complements the award-winning Paccar MX-13 engine, is scheduled to be available with Kenworth and Peterbilt trucks in January 2016. Paccar successfully launched the MX-11 engine in Europe in 2013, installing more than 10,000 MX-11 engines in DAF trucks in the last two years.

“The Paccar MX-11 engine is designed to deliver optimum performance and fuel economy, industry-leading durability and reliability, and a quiet operating environment for the driver,” said Landon Sproull, Paccar assistant vice president. “Paccar’s over 50 years of engine development and manufacturing expertise have established the company as one of the leading diesel engine manufacturers in the world.”

The 10.8-liter Paccar MX-11 engine is characterized by its combination of state-of-the-art innovations and proven technologies that reduce weight and deliver features needed for a wide variety of over the road and vocational applications. The Paccar MX-11 engine’s double overhead camshaft design, coupled with a compact graphite iron (CGI) engine block and cylinder head, create long-lasting durability, achieving an industry-leading B10 life of one million miles. The Paccar MX-11 utilizes a common rail fuel system with injection pressures of 2,500 bar to optimize combustion and ensure the lowest possible fuel consumption and noise levels.

Paccar is a global technology leader in the design, manufacture and customer support of high-quality light-, medium-, and heavy-duty trucks under the Kenworth, Peterbilt and DAF nameplates. Paccar also designs and manufactures advanced diesel engines, provides financial services and information technology, and distributes truck parts related to its principal business.
