The 200,000th PACCAR MX engine produced for the North American market at the PACCAR Engine Company’s engine plant in Columbus, Mississippi, was celebrated recently during a special presentation to UPS. The milestone engine is a PACCAR MX-13 rated at 455 HP and 1,650 lb./ft. of torque that resides in a Kenworth T680 day cab going into service in UPS regional haul operations.

“It was fitting to recognize UPS with the 200,000th PACCAR MX series engine. We have established an excellent collaboration with UPS over the years, aided by the strong support of MHC Kenworth – Atlanta and the PACCAR Columbus engine plant,” said Mike Dozier, Kenworth general manager and PACCAR vice president.

“We appreciate the selection of UPS to receive the milestone 200,000th PACCAR MX engine for installation in our newest Kenworth T680. Our Kenworth T680s equipped with PACCAR MX engines are performing well in UPS operations throughout the United States,” said Bill Brentar, UPS senior director of maintenance and engineering for transportation equipment at the company’s headquarters in Atlanta, Ga.
