Paccar is launching new power, torque and fuel efficiency enhancements to its MX-13 and MX-11 diesel engines for North America in January. The MX-13’s output is increased to 510 hp and 1,850 lb.-ft. of torque and the MX-11 is boosted to 430 hp and 1,650 lb.-ft. of torque. Paccar also added a new MX-11 rating at 335 hp and 1,150 lb.-ft. torque.
The MX engines deliver peak torque at 900 rpm for the majority of engine ratings. Paccar designs MX engines to a B10 life of one million miles. This means 90% of the MX-13 and MX-11 engines are expected to reach one million miles without need for a major overhaul.
“Nearly 50% of Kenworth and Peterbilt trucks delivered to customers in North America this year will be powered by a PACCAR MX engine,” said Landon Sproull, PACCAR vice president.
