DENTON, Texas — Peterbilt Motors Co. had announced the availability of the PACCAR MX engine with Model 389.
The PACCAR MX engine provides customers a long term proposition through its technologically advanced designs with lightweight materials that achieve excellent performance and leading fuel economy, according to Bill Jackson, Peterbilt general manager and PACCAR vice president.
“High industry acceptance and customer demand has allowed Peterbilt to expand the availability of the PACCAR MX engine into the Model 389,” Jackson said. “We are pleased to pair the MX engine with the Model 389 offering customers a superior fuel economy option that provides longer service intervals, increased uptime, lower operating costs and higher resale value.”
The PACCAR MX engine is available with a horsepower range of 380hp-485hp and torque outputs up to 1,750 lb-ft with a displacement of 12.9 liters. Using Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) in combination with exhaust gas recirculation (EGR), the MX engine meets 2010 EPA diesel engine emissions regulations. The fully integrated systems with modular components reduce design complexity resulting in longer service intervals, increased uptime, lower operating costs and higher resale value.
Peterbilt and all PACCAR dealerships have certified PACCAR MX trained technicians and a complete inventory of service parts in-stock, the company said in a news release.
