GREENSBORO, N.C. — Mack has announced availability of a new 505-hp 505C+ engine based on its MP8.

The new offering is intended for customers looking for big power from a 13-litre engine, the company announced.

The MP8 505C+ offers 505 hp and 1,860 lb.-ft. of torque, delivering the maximum torque output in all gears to maximize fuel efficiency. It’s intended for linehaul applications requiring extra power for mountainous terrain.

“This engine is all about power and performance,” said Roy Horton, Mack director of product marketing. “The MP8 505C+ is an excellent option for customers seeking a lower-displacement engine, which saves weight and improves fuel economy, but one that can also readily manage heavy loads across rigorous terrain.”

The new offering is available in the Mack Pinnacle axle-forward and axle-back models. It is available now for order and delivery.
