Mack unveils new Euro 6 range for Australia

A whole new range of Mack drivetrains has been revealed for Australian bulldog fans, including an all-new range-topping 780hp 17-litre MP11 engine with a stump pulling 3800Nm of torque.

Joining the new big-block engine is a revamped 13-litre eSCR Euro 6 MP8 which, like the rest of the new Euro 6 range, benefits from new low friction cylinder liners, wave top pistons, a more efficient turbocharger, and a revised electronics system to provide more precise fuel delivery and combustion.

Mack Anthem’s potential as a fuel efficiency champion has also been given a shot in the arm with the arrival of the new MP8HE (High Efficiency) engine platform.

The MP8HE utilises turbo compound technology to scavenge extra energy from the engine’s exhaust flow and transfer that power directly to the engine crankshaft. The result is a hefty 2800Nm torque figure, significantly higher than the standard Mack MP8 engine.

A keen focus on the progression of safety features continues to be an important hallmark of the Mack offering.

With Mack’s evolution of Bendix Wingman Fusion and new Mack infotainment system with standard rear-view camera and optional additional cameras, Mack customers will benefit from an improved level of visibility and safety on the job site.

The fully integrated 70-inch, walk-through sleeper will also be available for order with Euro 6 Super-Liner and Titan products.

Featuring multiple configuration options including single and double bunks, the new sleeper, which was a popular attraction at the 2023 Brisbane Truck Show, delivers a whole new standard of driver comfort, promises Mack.

“To say we’re excited to bring this range of engines to market here in Australia would be an understatement,” said Tom Chapman, vice president Mack Trucks Australia.

“To be able to now offer both power and efficiency across such a broad array of transport tasks in this country is truly game changing for Mack.

“Ultimately, the biggest winners here will be our customers.

“From demanding heavy haulage in our nation’s interior to the vital inter-capital freight arteries, Mack Trucks has now more than ever the ability to deliver a better driving experience, more time on the road and lower running costs.”

The new Mack Trucks Euro 6 range is now available to order with the first vehicles expected to hit the road in early 2025.
