Peterbilt Motors Company announces that the Paccar MX-11 engine is now available with the Paccar Transmission. The Paccar 12-speed automated transmission is the lightest heavy-duty automated transmission on the market, designed to work with Paccar engines and axles to increase fuel economy and truck performance, according to an announcement.
The MX-11 offers fuel efficiency to increase profitability and uptime while offering a high power-to-weight ratio. The Paccar 12-speed automated transmission features low cost of operation with 750,000 mile oil change intervals.
“When combined with the MX-11 engine, the Paccar automated transmission offers superior drivability, with industry-leading maneuverability at low speeds,” says Wesley Slavin, on-highway marketing manager, Peterbilt Motors Company. “The transmission is the best in class for both drivability and weight, making it the best choice for heavy-duty fleets and vocational trucks like the Model 567 and 520.”
