Mack unveils new engine

Jason Cannon March 25, 2013

UnknownAt the Mid-America Trucking Show in Louisville, Ky. last week, Mack Trucks introduced the newest member of the MACK Econodyne family – the MACK MP8 Econodyne+.

The 13-liter MP8 Econodyne+ engine is available in MACK Pinnacle models and offers 505 horsepower with 1,860 lb.-ft. of torque when operating in either of the top two gears, maximizing fuel efficiency and power.

At 100 percent throttle and when the rpms reach 1300, Mack’s intelligent torque management strategy, EconoBoost, kicks in, providing the driver with an additional 200 lb.-ft. of torque, enabling the truck to remain in top gear for a longer time period until the hill is crested.

“Mack customers working in mountainous areas requiring higher torque output can remain in top gear for longer, supplying more power and preserving fuel economy,” says David McKenna, Mack director of powertrain sales and marketing.
