Mack rolls out Titan tractor

Mack Trucks' heavy transport and heavy construction version of its new Titan model is powered by the new big-block Mack MP10 engine, a 16-liter diesel with a top rating of 605 horsepower and 2,060 lb-ft of torque, also introduced at MATS.

The MP10 engine adds the intelligent power management field-proven by its siblings, the 11-liter MP7 and 13-liter MP8 engines. Like the MP7 and MP8, the MP10 is certified to meet the US 2007 emissions standards, using ultra-low sulfur diesel fuel and a diesel particulate filter. All of Mack's MP engines come with the next generation of Mack's proven Vehicle Management and Control System, V-MAC IV.

The Titan's high-capacity axles, suspension, chassis, and powertrain give it a commanding stance. Other stylistic elements include a long hood, large metal grille and bumper, extensive brightwork features and twin Growler air intakes.

The vehicle's combination of high ground clearance, cab position and long nose improves airflow for underhood cooling and provides drivers with excellent visibility.

Chromed cast aluminum surrounds the large grille, with a similar treatment for the headlight bezels. The headlights have impact-resistant Lexan lenses and easy-to-replace lamps. Other notable exterior features include: chrome horns; stainless steel sunvisor and steel skirt lighting; six-inch dual exhaust stacks; Titan bright-finish metal bumper, with integrated driving lights; and a stainless steel cover for the Mack Cap diesel particulate filter.

The MP10 engine is matched to the Mack T300ES series 10-, 13-, and 18-speed transmissions, which deliver triple countershaft performance for the most demanding applications. Eaton transmissions are available options.

The Titan is built upon Mack's Cornerstone chassis with proven rock-solid performance, durability and reliability. A short 41-inch front axle position increases load capacity and ensures excellent visibility and maneuverability.

The truck's interior was engineered for driver comfort. The air assist clutch pedal is positioned low for ease-of-use. The steering column is infinitely adjustable for maximum comfort, increased belly room, and improved visibility of all gauges.

The interior, available in a variety of trim levels, comes standard with the Mack Co-Pilot display. It provides drivers with easily accessible screens in the instrument panel to monitor real-time fuel economy (with sweet spot indicator) and trip data, detailed maintenance and fault summaries, and supplemental sensor readings. The available Lectronix T7000 navigational radio integrates entertainment, navigation, a blind spot camera display, and vehicle, trip, and tire-pressure monitoring systems.

Also introduced was the new Mack Pinnacle Rawhide Edition tractor that features a new level of interior comfort. It is available in three cab configurations: 60- and 70-inch midrise sleepers, plus daycab.

The truck's axle-forward position maximizes payload, while also giving it a bold stance.
