KIRKLAND, Wash. — Kenworth has announced the Paccar MX-11 engine is now available for order in vocational and regional haul trucks through its dealers.
The Kenworth T880, T680, T800 with FEPTO and W900S can all be spec’d with the MX-11, available with up to 430 hp and 1,550 lb.-ft. of torque.
The engine represents a 400-lb weight savings compared to 13-litre engines, the company says.
“The Paccar MX-11 is designed for maximum productivity and long life, and has ample low-end power for applications requiring less than 450 horsepower, such as regional haul, tanker, bulk haul, construction and refuse,” said Jason Skoog, Kenworth assistant general manager for sales and marketing. “The addition of the MX-11 broadens Kenworth’s engine offering for Class 8 trucks as it joins the successful, fuel-efficient, Paccar MX-13 in our lineup.”
