PACCAR recently announced that it is expanding its range of engines in North America with the introduction of the PACCAR MX-11 engine, with an output of up to 430 HP and 1,550 lb.-ft. of torque.
The PACCAR MX-11, which the company said complements its MX-13 engine, is scheduled to be available with Kenworth and Peterbilt trucks in January 2016. PACCAR launched the PACCAR MX-11 engine in Europe in 2013, installing over 10,000 PACCAR MX-11 engines in DAF trucks in the last two years, the company said.
“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, 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 company noted that the 10.8-liter 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.”
According to the company, the 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 company added that the engine 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.
