Powerfully Efficient: Mack Unveils Mack® MP7® 405SE

GREENSBORO, NC (Sept. 8, 2014) – Mack Trucks unveiled its newest integrated powertrain offering, the Mack® MP7® 405 Super Econodyne (SE). Available with 405 horsepower and 1,560 lb.-ft. of torque, the MP7 405SE boosts fuel efficiency while delivering all the power required to get the job done.

The Super Econodyne system is designed with all-Mack proprietary components for a complete Mack Pedigree™ Powertrain. The MP7 engine, Mack mDRIVE™ automated manual transmission (AMT), Mack proprietary drive axles and Mack’s custom software work seamlessly as an integrated package providing industry-leading fuel efficiency without compromising power or performance.

“The MP7 is the latest Mack engine to be available in the Super Econodyne rating,” said Roy Horton, Mack director of product marketing. “Customers who spec the fuel-efficient MP7 SE package with the overdrive AMT and Mack’s C125/126 axles can experience up to a 4 percent fuel efficiency improvement compared with the standard MP7 and AMT package.”

The lightweight MP7 offers an outstanding power-to-weight ratio, ideal for maximizing payloads. Available in Mack Pinnacle™ models, the Greenhouse Gas 2014-certified MP7 405SE is ideal for regional and bulk haul applications up to 80,000 pounds on predominantly flat terrain and up to 70,000 pounds on rolling hills.

“The MP7 405SE delivers the legendary Mack power and performance our customers have come to expect from an integrated Mack Pedigree Powertrain, but with even greater fuel efficiency,” Horton said. “It allows our customers to maximize payloads, save on fuel and increase their return on investment – all without compromising power.”

The Mack MP7 405SE is available now for order.
