New Mack Anthem® Day Cab Roof Fairing Improves Fuel Efficiency, Total Cost of Ownership
GREENSBORO, NC (June 14, 2021) – Mack Trucks announced today that it’s now offering a newly designed Mack Anthem® day cab roof fairing, offering customers increased fuel efficiency benefits and improved total cost of ownership. Mack made the announcement during the National Private Truck Council (NPTC) Annual Management Conference and Exhibition, June 13-15 at the Duke Energy Convention Center in Cincinnati.
The improved roof fairing design, now available for order, increases fuel efficiency by up to 2% when paired with side shields.
“Mack remains committed to improving the total cost of ownership for customers by designing innovative and fuel-efficient components, delivering better fuel efficiency results,” said Stu Russoli, Mack highway product manager. “Designing products that offer up to a 2% fuel efficiency improvement on an already fuel-efficient truck significantly impacts a customer’s bottom line.”
The taller profile of the roof fairing allows for better air flow over the trailer, reducing drag. The trim tab height is adjustable, accounting for chassis height, trailer height and the distance between the rear of the cab and front of the trailer.
Mack Anthem day cab models can be SmartWay certified if spec’d with roof fairings and side shields, chassis fairing and an aerodynamic bumper option. In addition, low-rolling resistance SmartWay-certified tires are required.
The Mack Anthem day cab at NPTC is spec’d with Mack’s proprietary Mack® MP® 7 engine providing customers with a fuel-efficient option to boost their bottom line. The highly efficient MP7 is both powerful and lightweight, enabling customers to maximize payloads.
The Mack Anthem day cab also features the Mack mDRIVE™ 12-speed overdrive automated manual transmission, delivering smooth shifts, better fuel efficiency and a more comfortable driver experience.
Mack Anthem models also are equipped with Mack GuardDog® Connect, Mack’s integrated telematics solution, which monitors critical fault codes that could lead to unplanned downtime. GuardDog Connect also is the enabling technology for Mack Over The Air remote software and parameter updates. Mack Over The Air is now standard
with driver download activation feature so customers can implement software updates themselves at their convenience.
