PACCAR MX-13 Coach & Bus engine

The 12.9 Litre PACCAR MX-13 engine uses state of the art technologies, fi rst class materials, extensive function integration and a heavy duty foamed wire loom to achieve highest reliability and durability. Excellent torque at low engine speeds and a high performance is available over a wide rev. range. The best engine has become even better.

A well-controlled and further optimized combustion process using smart dosing controls and modulating fuel line pressure assures highest effi ciency and lowest fuel consumption ever. Repair & Maintenance costs have been cut as well by extending intervals and increased uptime. The engine is available in Euro 6, Euro 5 and Euro 3 versions. To meet the Euro 6 emission levels it features exhaust gas recirculation, SCR and an active soot filter.
