Public Transport

DAF is renowned for its fuel efficient and clean PR diesel engine used in many city and inter-city bus applications. DAF’s fleet workshop management tools and PACCAR’s efficient parts distribution network reduce vehicle downtime and maintenance cost. The result is lower product life cycle costs and a longer life of DAF powered vehicles.

Euro 6 Engines

PACCAR MX-11 engine

In developing the new 10.8 litre PACCAR MX-11 engine, high performance, low weight and fuel efficiency were the main guiding principles. In addition to maximum reliability and longevity, and optimal vehicle availability. 

The PACCAR MX-11 engine is available with outputs from 210 kW/286 hp to 320 kW/435 hp and is ideal for use in both buses for public transport, as well as long-distance coaches.
