PACCAR MX-11 Engines 

The 10.8 litre Euro 6 PACCAR MX-11 engine uses ultra-modern common rail technology, a turbo with variable geometry and advanced controls for maximum efficiency. In order to comply with the strict Euro 6 emission requirements, it features exhaust gas recirculation, together with an active soot fi lter and SCR technology.
The engines MX-11 271, 291 and 320 provide additional torque at low revs in the highest gear for direct drive gearboxes and in the two highest gears for overdrive gearboxes to support lower fuel consumption of the vehicle.

Engine torque and performance

Two different engine tunings are used to adapt the PACCAR MX-11 engines to specific application areas. Engines with outputs 220 and 251 kW have been optimized for urban, regional and national distribution, with solo vehicles or combinations up to 32-36 tonnes GCM. 
These engines deliver maximum torque over an extra wide range of 900-1400 rpm. Engines with outputs 270, 300 and 330 kW have been optimized for one-stop delivery types of application, with GCMs ranging from 36 to 44 tonnes. These MX-11 engines provide additional torque at low revs in the highest gear for direct drive gearboxes and in the two highest gears for overdrive gearboxes to support lower fuel consumption of the vehicle.
