Mack® MD Series Trucks Begin to Roll Off Line at RVO in Preparation for Full Production

The new trucks will meet the needs of trucking applications requiring dry van/refrigerated, stake/flatbed, dump and tank truck vocations. Available in 4x2 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. The Mack MD Series will be supported by Mack’s extensive dealer network.
