Introducing the MACK¬® Granite® MHD 4x2

INDIANAPOLIS, IN (March 6, 2013) – Mack Trucks today launched the MACK® Granite® Medium Heavy Duty (MHD) 4x2 model, offering a Class 7 or Class 8 solution for customers demanding a lighter yet rugged work truck.

            Introduced for the first time during the 2013 National Truck Equipment Association (NTEA) Work Truck Show in Indianapolis, the MHD 4x2, offered in a heavy-duty or medium-duty configuration, is the latest version of the MACK Granite® MHD launched in 2011. The MHD 4x2 is available now for order.

            “The MHD 4x2 offers a great option for customers needing a truck tough enough to manage their daily operations, but in a lighter weight configuration to increase their ROI,” said Curtis Dorwart, Mack vocational marketing product manager.

            Equipped with a Cummins ISL9 345 horsepower engine with a maximum torque rating of 1,150 lb.-ft., the MHD 4x2 provides the power, durability and reliability that customers equate with a Mack truck.

            A clean back-of-cab design helps the MHD 4x2 accommodate a wide variety of body options, including those required for utility, dump and municipal applications. The short bumper-to-tire distance offers front-end swing clearance and superior wheel cut – key for navigating tight turns in municipalities and construction sites.

            The galvanized steel cab of the MHD 4x2 is mounted on airbags and shocks so the driver stays comfortable during the workday. The MACK® Cornerstone™ chassis, built of high-strength steel alloy for a stronger, lighter frame, is offered in four frame rail thicknesses ranging from 7 mm to 11.1 mm.
