More MX engines

Paccar says its new engine factory in Columbus, Mississippi is hiking MX engine production to cope with demand from Peterbilt and Kenworth customers.  Jim Cardillo, Paccar president says the firm is fitting the 12.9 litre engine, from the Daf XF105 range in over 20% of Kenworth and Peterbilt Class 8 trucks.  “This reflects customer recognition of the excellent power-to-weight ratio, fuel economy and reliability of the MX engine,” says Cardillo.  The engine delivers 90,000 km service intervals that can stretch to 150,000km with synthetic oil and a centrifugal oil filter.  It also meets Euro 5 and EEV emission standards.
