PACCAR MX Engine Earns EPA 2010 Certification


PACCAR recently announced that the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has certified the PACCAR MX 12,9 l diesel engine to the 2010 emission standards. The PACCAR MX engine certification and compliance with EPA 2010 emission regulations allows the PACCAR MX engine to be installed in Kenworth and Peterbilt vehicles in North America, effective immediately.

The PACCAR MX engine is available with a horsepower range of 380 to 485 hp and torque up to 1750 lb ft. MX engine production in North America begins this summer at PACCAR’s new engine facility in Columbus, Mississippi.

The PACCAR MX engine has completed over 80 million km in an extensive testing program. In addition, the MX engines have successfully completed evaluation in hot and cold temperature extremes, high altitudes and difficult vocational applications.

PACCAR previously announced the use of selective catalytic reduction (SCR) with its MX engines to meet the Nitrous oxides (NOx) requirements for the 2010 EPA diesel engine emissions regulations.
