GREENSBORO, NC (Feb. 16, 2022) – Mack Trucks announced today that it has produced the 5,000th Mack® MD Series vehicle at its Roanoke Valley Operations (RVO) facility, where the MD6 and MD7 are assembled.

“Congratulations to RVO for assembling the 5,000th Mack MD model,” said Jonathan Randall, Mack Trucks senior vice president of sales and commercial operations. “Customer response to the Mack MD Series has been overwhelmingly positive, and we look forward to continue working together with our colleagues at RVO to deliver high-quality medium-duty trucks to fulfill our customers’ needs.”

The Mack MD6, a Class 6 model, and the MD7, a Class 7 model, began rolling off the line Sept. 1, 2020. The Mack MD Series is built specifically for medium-duty applications. With the introduction of the MD6, which has a Gross Vehicle Weight Rating (GVWR) of 25,995 pounds, and the MD7, which has a GVWR of 33,000 pounds, Mack now offers a complete lineup of Class 6 to Class 8 vehicles. Both MD Series models are exempt from the 12 percent Federal Excise Tax (FET).

“The entire RVO team is committed to developing and building the MD Series to meet the high-quality standards that customers expect from a Mack truck,” said Antonio Servidoni, Mack vice president, medium-duty operations. “We are extremely proud to represent the Mack brand in the Roanoke Valley in Virginia.”

The MD6 and MD7 models meet the needs of a wide variety of medium-duty trucking applications, including dry van/refrigerated, stake/flatbed, dump and tank truck vocations. The MD6 model does not require a Commercial Driver’s License (CDL) to operate for non-hazardous payloads.

Available in 4x2 configurations, the MD6 and MD7 models feature a sharp wheel cut for enhanced maneuverability in tough urban settings. The MD Series cab design features an industry-best bumper-to-back-of-cab (BBC) measurement of 103 inches. Mack modeled the MD's bold cab, hood and grille styling on the Mack Anthem®, Mack’s highway model. The Mack MD Series is supported by Mack’s extensive dealer network.
