Autocar LLC has announced it is now offering the Caterpillar 3126E 7.2-liter mid-range diesel engine in its Xpeditor WX series trucks.
The engine, with a rating of 275 hp. and 800 lb.-ft. torque, is being provided as a lightweight option for vocational applications that operate with less than 60,000 lbs. GVW.
Typical applications for the 3126E include refuse hauling, recycling, airport refueling and construction. The 3126E is also available in dual-fuel LNG and CNG versions.
Autocar vp-sales and marketing Mike Popovich said that when combined with mid-range Allison transmissions, the 3126E meets the needs of fleets that want a lightweight, lower-cost choice for lighter GVW applications.
