KIRKLAND, Wash., Dec. 6, 2012 – Kenworth Truck Company is offering Extended Protection Plans for the new 2013 PACCAR MX-13 engine.
The 12.9-liter PACCAR MX-13 engine is designed to meet the demands of heavy duty truck applications and to deliver industry-leading performance, reliability and fuel efficiency. The engine is available for Kenworth Class 8 models, including the Kenworth T660, T680, T700, T800 and W900.
The PACCAR MX-13 engine has a standard base warranty of 2 years or 250,000 miles, whichever comes first. To meet the needs of customers, Kenworth offers a wide range of protection plan options encompassing three engine coverage categories (Comprehensive, Modified, and Major Component) in addition to Extended Engine Aftertreatment options. Overall, available extended warranty coverage options range from 3 to 7 years and from 100,000 to 700,000 miles.
“The PACCAR MX-13 Extended Protection Plans helps provide excellent value and peace of mind with different options to best fit customer needs,” said Judy McTigue, Kenworth director of marketing and research planning.
Truck purchasers have three opportunities to add extended warranty engine coverage: When ordering a new Kenworth truck with the PACCAR MX-13 engine, when registering it for warranty, and up to 18 months after the Kenworth truck is warranty-registered (mileage and engine hour limitations apply). No registration fee is required for extended engine protection added to any new Kenworth vehicle up to 12 months after purchase. A $400 registration fee is required for each extended warranty order placed from 13 months through 18 months after truck purchase.
The PACCAR MX-13 utilizes the latest common rail fuel-delivery technology, which enables injection pressures of up to 2,500 bar, significantly enhancing fuel efficiency and performance. The common rail fuel system uses controls to regulate the fuel in a central manifold, only compressing the amount of fuel mixture needed. The result is finer fuel atomization to optimized combustion, ensuring the lowest possible fuel consumption, emission and noise levels.
The new PACCAR MX-13 engine offers a wide range of horsepower and torque ratings to meet customer power requirements. Kenworth customers can now specify the PACCAR MX-13 on new Kenworth truck orders placed through Kenworth dealers in the United States and Canada for delivery in 2013.
