Mack Trucks plans to adapt its E7 and E9 on-highway engines for marine, agricultural, power generation, and other diesel engine applications.

The engines will be marketed through a new business unit, MackPower, led by Mack Vice President of Business Development Scott Kress. Kress said Mack will dedicate a MackPower distribution network that will consist of new and established dealerships.
Initial power ratings for the marine E7 mechanical and electronically controlled six-cylinder, 12-liter engines (designated MP ME7) will range from 350 to 650 horsepower. Commercial and industrial engines (designated MP IE7) will range from 350 to 500 horsepower.
Mack's E9 engine, a 16-liter V8 design, will be available later in the year.
The toll-free telephone number for all MackPower inquiries is 1-877-6-PWRMACK.
