“This order from TransAm Trucking is a remarkable way to help introduce the Paccar MX engine into the North American market,” said Bill Kozek, Kenworth general manager and Paccar vice-president. “Kenworth and PACCAR very much appreciate TransAm’s strong support and commitment. We look forward to delivering the first of the fleet’s 1,050 fuel-efficient Kenworth T660s with Paccar MX engines beginning this summer.”
“We’re very confident in the Paccar MX engine,” said Russ McElliott, TransAm president. “We have studied Paccar’s global engine capabilities, their engine technology, and validation processes. Combined with Kenworth’s excellent dealer service, we are confident in the Paccar MX engine.”
The Paccar MX engine is designed to deliver performance, reliability, and fuel efficiency. It has accumulated more than 50 million test miles in rigorous and severe conditions in North America. The Paccar MX engine uses selective catalytic reduction (SCR) technology in combination with exhaust gas recirculation to meet the Environmental Protection Agency’s 2010 diesel engine emissions regulations.
“We’ve had an excellent relationship with TransAm Trucking over the past six years,” said Tim Murphy, president of selling dealer MHC Kenworth in Kansas City MO. “TransAm is an award-winning leader in the EPA SmartWay Transport Partnership program, and strives to reduce operating costs, increase fuel efficiency and lower emissions. The T660 with the Paccar MX will help meet those goals and deliver outstanding performance.”
TransAm has specified the Paccar MX engine rated at 485 hp and 1,650 lb-ft of torque and the T660 with the Kenworth 72-inch AeroCab Aerodyne sleeper.
