Goodbye, strong man: from production take Mack Titan

A rare case when the manufacturer officially announces the removal from production of its model. Everyone usually does the opposite: with pomp and with a large number of people solemnly introduced to the novelty. However, the American company Mack Trucks did exactly this: the company’s spokesman announced the removal of the top model Titan from the production, and at the same time the MP10 engine (the 16-liter in-line six-cylinder and up to 605 hp), which he was equipped with . It was stated that other models could cope with the tasks of the former flagship. 

Mack Titan officially introduced in the US market in 2008. It was offered in the role of a tractor for heavy conditions: transportation of over sized, oil and gas production, export of timber. However, orders for it were only piece, because the American market for this model Mack has ceased to be the main one since the late 90’s.

In fact, the Titan is much older: it first appeared in 1995. Just about him very few people knew, because they presented it in Australia, where it is quite successful so far in the role of tractor for local Road Trains.
For today, in the American program of Mack, except for the “garbage” series of bespoken MRU / LE there were only two families, which will replace Titan. These are Pinnacle road tractors (they are not particularly popular either), and the Granite building in an endless range of options.


Own engines now also left two: 11-liter MP7 and 13-liter MP10. In fact, they are assembled in the US Volvian twin engines D11 and D13, familiar to us on the FMX series. Mack is part of Renault Trucks, which, in turn, belongs to Volvo. However, the American customers have a wider choice of diesels: as is customary here, any third-party engine can be ordered for any truck.
