GREENSBORO, N.C. — UPS has placed an order for 475 Mack Pinnacle models built with EPA 2010-certified Mack MP engines.

“We are very pleased that UPS decided to choose Mack and continue the long partnership between our two great companies,” said Michael D. McNally, vice-president of sales for Mack Trucks. “Our Pinnacle model combines the power and durability that Mack is known for, with the performance and fuel economy that customers like UPS require.”

Production of the order will begin early this month at the Mack Macungie Assembly Operations just outside of Allentown, Pa. All the trucks will be delivered to numerous locations across the US by the end of 2010, officials say.  

The Mack Pinnacle Series – available in axle back or axle forward configurations – is designed for use with steep grades and long hauls. The trucks are equipped with the Mack MP engine, featuring Mack ClearTech Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) technology. Officials say the combination delivers near-zero emissions and up to a 5% fuel efficiency improvement over EPA 2007 engines.

“Customers like UPS are responding positively to Mack’s EPA2010 solution,” said Scott Freeman, Mack fleet sales manager. “They have seen the other options out there and have found that we’re providing the cleanest, most-efficient trucks.
