LEHIGH VALLEY, Pa. – Mack Trucks has created a new business unit – MackPower – that will manufacture, market and service a lineup of Mack diesel engines for a variety of commercial, industrial and marine applications.

Initial product offerings will include the Mack E7 mechanical design engine, and the Mack E7 E-Tech engine, which is a six-cylinder, 12-litre model featuring an electronic in-line injection system. Mack’s E9 engine, which is a 16-litre V8 design, will be available later in the year.

Initial power ratings on the marine side (which have been designated MP ME7 engines) will range from 350 to 650 hp. Commercial and industrial engines (designated MP IE7) will range from 350 to 500 hp. Marine engines include both raw water-cooled and keel-cooled models.

“The Mack engine is a well-known, well-respected product that has proven its mettle for decades,” said Scott Kress, Mack vice-president, business development, and general manager of the MackPower business unit. “With a company-wide commitment to this new venture, we fully expect to earn a like reputation at MackPower.”

Kress added that Mack is currently developing a distribution network that will be dedicated specifically to the commercial, industrial and marine markets. These locations will consist of new dealerships, as well as established sites. n
