Mack unleases 405 hp. MP7 Super Econodyne engine

Sept. 9, 2014

Mack Trucks is now offering a new MP7 engine for regional and bulk haul applications up to 80,000 lbs. The MP7 405 Super Econodyne (SE) engine produces 405 hp. and 1,560 lbs.-ft. of torque.

The Super Econodyne system is designed with all-Mack proprietary components for a complete Mack Pedigree Powertrain. The MP7 engine, Mack mDrive automated manual transmission (AMT), Mack proprietary drive axles and Mack’s custom software work together as an integrated package.

“The MP7 is the latest Mack engine to be available in the Super Econodyne rating,” said Roy Horton, Mack director of product marketing. “Customers who spec the fuel-efficient MP7 SE package with the overdrive AMT and Mack’s C125/126 axles can experience up to a 4% fuel efficiency improvement compared with the standard MP7 and AMT package.”

The engine is available in Mack Pinnacle models. According to Mack, it is ideal for applications hauling up to 80,000 lbs. on predominantly flat terrain and up to 70,000 lbs. on rolling hills.

“The MP7 405SE delivers the legendary Mack power and performance our customers have come to expect from an integrated Mack Pedigree Powertrain, but with even greater fuel efficiency,” Horton said. “It allows our customers to maximize payloads, save on fuel and increase their return on investment – all without compromising power.”
