GREENSBORO, NC — Mack Trucks has a new powertrain suited for regional and bulk haul runs.
The MP7 Super Econodyne (SE) puts out 405hp and 1,560 lb.-ft of torque. When mated with a Mack mDrive automated manual transmission (AMT) and the company’s proprietary C125/126 drive axles and software in a Mack Pedigree Powertrain package, it offers up to a 4% fuel efficiency gain over the standard MP7 and AMT package.
Mack describes the engine as lightweight, and says it is Greenhouse Gas 2014-certified. It also comes as a Pinnacle model.
The MP7SE can be used to haul up to 80,000 lbs. over predominantly flat terrain and up to 70,000 lbs. on rolling hills.
“The MP7 405SE delivers the legendary Mack power and performance our customers have come to expect from an integrated Mack Pedigree Powertrain, but with even greater fuel efficiency,” Horton said. “It allows our customers to maximize payloads, save on fuel and increase their return on investment—all without compromising power.”
