MX-11 is more fuel efficient, quieter than the MX-13.

October 8, 2015

Bellvue, Washington – Paccar is expanding its range of Paccar-brand engines in North America with the introduction of the MX-11 engine, with an output of up to 430hp and 1,550 lb-ft of torque. A complement to the Paccar MX-13 engine, it is scheduled to be available with Kenworth and Peterbilt trucks in January 2016.

Paccar successfully launched the MX-11 engine in Europe in 2013, installing more than 10,000 in DAF trucks in the last two years.

“The Paccar MX-11 engine is designed to deliver optimum performance and fuel economy, industry-leading durability and reliability, and a quiet operating environment for the driver,” says Landon Sproull, Paccar assistant vice president.

The 10.8L Paccar MX-11 engine’s double overhead camshaft design, coupled with a compact graphite iron (CGI) engine block and cylinder head, create long-lasting durability, achieving an industry-leading B10 life of 1 million miles. A common rail fuel system with injection pressures of 2,500 bar optimizes combustion and ensures the lowest possible fuel consumption and noise levels.
