Mack Trucks Debuts All-New Mack Anthem

| September 19, 2017

Mack Anthem

Mack Trucks has introduced its new, next-generation vehicle, the Mack Anthem, — with an emphasis on aerodynamics, comfort and connectivity.

“The Anthem combines our latest innovations with more than a century of truck-building know-how,” said Dennis Slagle, president, Mack Trucks. “The incredible result is a truck that’s been built for our customers’ business and designed for drivers, all while delivering the power and presence that only a Mack truck can deliver.”

The Mack Anthem, boasts numerous interior and exterior features which were designed to optimize power, fuel efficiency, and safety while emphasizing driver comfort.

The Anthem’s new aerodynamic enhancements improve fuel efficiency by up to 3 percent thanks to newly designed components including the hood, roof, chassis fairings, mirror covers, front bumper and air dam.

Also exclusively available is the Mack MP8-TC engine which converts excess energy from the exhaust into mechanical energy that is fed back to the engine, generating an 50 additional horsepower back to the crankshaft.

Combined with the Anthem’s aerodynamic improvements, the Mack MP8-TC engines provide up to an 11.8 percent improvement in fuel efficiency compared with a baseline from previous Mack models.

The Mack’s new 5-inch, full-color screen Co-Pilot display provides drivers with a convenient way to monitor vehicle information, including engine and oil temperatures, trip odometers, aftertreatment status, tire pressures and more.

All Anthem model trucks come standard with a camera and radar-based driver assistance solution, that provides collision mitigation, adaptive cruise control and lane departure warning.

Mack also introduced Mack Connect, a predictive analytical technology that turns data produced by the truck, the driver and the service process into insights and actions, resulting in improved support and service.

This ensures that should a potential issue be detected, the system can automatically notify Mack’s 24/7 staff at the Mack Uptime Center to determine the severity of the issue and provide the customer’s designated contact with decision-critical information.

If service is required, the closest dealer location is identified and service bay space and parts availability is confirmed, all while the truck is still on the road.

“Getting the most miles out of a truck is key in today’s trucking industry,” said David Pardue, vice president of connected vehicles and uptime services, Mack Trucks. “Mack gives customers the connected driving tools required to boost productivity and efficiency.”
