Mack Trucks confirmed this week that its Titan tractor and its MP10 16-liter engine have been discontinued, effective immediately. The news follows confirmation by Volvo this week that it has halted production of hits heavy haul-focused VNX tractor and has discontinued its 16-liter D16 engine.
Current Titan orders will not be effected, says Mack spokesperson Chris Heffner.
The Titan by Mack model is being discontinued because many of the applications that the Titan served can be handled with the newer higher horsepower and torque outputs of the Mack MP8 13-liter engine, Heffner explained. Most applications previously served by the Titan by Mack can be handled by the Mack Granite or the Mack Pinnacle Axle Forward model equipped with the MP8 engine.
Titan, which has been on the market since 2008, will still be eligible for Macks aftermarket service and support, Heffner said.
