Costco Wholesale Corp., a wholesale club operator, has become both the first Kenworth Truck Co. and PacLease customer to receive a 2011 Kenworth production truck equipped with the new PACCAR MX engine.
 
During a recent ceremony at Costco headquarters in Issaquah, Wash., Costco Executive Vice President Tom Walker, Senior Vice President of Depots and Traffic John Thelan, and Vice President of Depot Operations Sarah Mogk received the keys to a new, aerodynamic Kenworth T660 from Bill Kozek, Kenworth general manager and PACCAR vice president, and Olen Hunter, PACCAR Leasing director of sales.
 
Costco’s all-Kenworth fleet of 300 trucks in North America is covered under a full-service lease provided by PacLease, which provides maintenance, administrative support and other services to Costco’s fleet operation.
 
The PACCAR MX 12.9-liter diesel engine is designed to deliver outstanding performance in a wide range of applications. It has received EPA and CARB certification and meets the 2010 low-emission standards of 0.2 grams per brake horsepower hour of NOx and 0.01 grams per brake horsepower hour of particulate matter, the company said.
 
The PACCAR MX engine is available with a horsepower range of 380 hp to 485 hp and torque outputs up to 1,750 ft./lb. This power range, combined with excellent fuel efficiency, high reliability, durability, lightweight design and low cost of ownership, makes it an ideal choice for both over-the-road line-haul and vocational applications, according to Kenworth.
