Mack Trucks began production of its MD Series trucks at its Roanoke Valley Operations (RVO) facility in Roanoke Valley, Virginia. Full production of the Mack MD Series is scheduled to begin September 1, 2020. Pictured is the Mack MD7, a Class 7 model with a Gross Vehicle Weight Rating (GVWR) of 33,000 lbs. Mack announced in January it invested $13 million to establish RVO to produce the Mack MD7 and the Mack MD6. The MD6 is a Class 6 model with a GVWR of 25,995 lbs. Both models are exempt from the 12% Federal Excise Tax (FET).
The new trucks will meet the needs of trucking applications requiring dry van/refrigerated, stake/flatbed, dump, and tank truck vocations. Available in 4×2 configurations, the MD6 and MD7 models feature a sharp wheel cut for enhanced maneuverability for tough urban settings. The MD Series cab design features a short bumper-to-back-of-cab (BBC) measurement of 103 inches, an industry best. Mack matched the bold look and styling of the Mack Anthem®, Mack’s highway model, as a basis for the grille and hood design found on the MD Series. Mack’s extensive dealer network will support the Mack MD Series.
