Mack MD trucks begin to roll off line; full production soon

Mack's New Md7 Class 7 TruckMack Trucks recently began initial production of its all-new Mack MD Series of medium-duty trucks at its Roanoke Valley Operations (RVO) facility in Roanoke Valley, Va. Full production of the Mack MD Series is scheduled to begin Sept. 1, 2020.

Mack MD7 is a Class 7 model with a gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR) of 33,000 lb. Mack announced in January it had invested $13 million to establish RVO to produce the Mack MD7 and the Mack MD6, a Class 6 model, with a GVWR of 25,995 lb. Both models are exempt from the 12 percent Federal Excise Tax (FET).

The new trucks will meet the needs of trucking applications requiring dry van/refrigerated, stake/flatbed, dump and tank truck vocations, Mack says.

Available in 4×2 configurations, the MD6 and MD7 models feature a sharp wheel cut for enhanced maneuverability for tough urban settings. The MD Series cab design features a short bumper-to-back-of-cab measurement of 103 in.

Mack also says it matched the bold look and styling of the Mack Anthem, Mack’s highway model, as a basis for the grille and hood design found on the MD Series. The Mack MD Series will be supported by Mack’s dealer network.
