How the PACCAR MX-11 engine is powering Kenworth trucks

Fleet Equipment visited the Kenworth Truck Co. plant in Chillicothe, Ohio, to take the recently released PACCAR MX-11 engine for a spin in a variety of Kenworth truck models, and to learn how the new engine is helping Kenworth’s offerings evolve. The PACCAR MX-11 11-liter, 430-HP, 1,550 lb.-ft. engine is available in the Kenworth T880, T680, T800 with FEPTO and W900S trucks. PACCAR successfully launched the PACCAR MX-11 engine in Europe in 2013, installing over 10,000 PACCAR MX-11 engines in DAF trucks in the past two years. The PACCAR MX-11 engine has more than 2.5 million miles of field testing in North America and over 250 million miles accumulated in production engines in operation in Europe.
