August 21, 2014 - Products
For customers seeking a powerful high-performing 13-liter engine, Mack Trucks announced its newest powertrain offering – the Mack MP8 505C+.
Built on the 13-liter MP8 engine platform, the MP8 505C+ offers 505 horsepower and 1,860 pounds-feet of torque. The MP8 505C+ delivers the maximum amount of torque in all gears to maximize fuel efficiency. According to Mack, the MP8 505C+ is ideal for long-haul applications and those requiring the muscle to easily conquer 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 MP8 505 C+ is available in the Mack Pinnacle Axle Forward and Axle Back models. The Pinnacle model is designed for durable over-the-road hauling with a Mack Advantage chassis to optimize payload.
The MP Engine Series also is designed with fewer parts for better durability.
The Mack MP8 505C+ is available now for order and delivery.
