Mack Trucks Debuts Mack® MD Series at the  Work Truck Show

Mack Trucks unveiled to the public for the first time its highly anticipated all-new Mack® MD Series of medium-duty trucks during the Work Truck Show March 3-6 at the Indiana Convention Center, Indianapolis.

The Mack MD6, a Class 6 model, has a Gross Vehicle Weight Rating (GVWR) of 25,995 pounds, and the MD7, a Class 7 model, has a GVWR of 33,000 pounds.

“Mack is extremely proud to reach even more customers through our medium duty Mack MD6 and MD7 models,” said Jonathan Randall, Mack Trucks senior vice president of North American sales and marketing. “With these trucks, Mack now offers a complete lineup of Class 6 to 8 vehicles, and the Mack MD Series will enable us to meet the needs of those customers desiring Mack’s legendary durability in a lighter weight GVWR configuration.”

The Mack MD6 and MD7 models, available in 4x2 configurations, are ideal for dry van/refrigerated, tank truck, dump, stake and flatbed applications. A Commercial Driver’s License (CDL) is not required to operate the MD6 model as long as the payload is non-hazardous.
The driver-focused interior of the Mack MD6 and MD7 models incorporate comfortable and ergonomic design features from Mack’s Class 8 truck models, ensuring a quiet ride for drivers.

Offering a sharp wheel cut for enhanced maneuverability in tough urban settings, the all-new cab of the MD6 and MD7 models feature an industry-best short bumper-to-back-of-cab (BBC) measurement of 103 inches. The MD Series also offers a clear back of cab and top of frame rail to make it easier for body builder adaptations.

Eight wheelbase lengths are offered with the Mack MD Series, supporting typical bodies ranging from 10 to 26 feet. The vehicles come standard with 22.5-inch wheels or optional 19.5-inch wheels.

The exterior of the medium-duty models was inspired by the Mack Anthem®, Mack’s highway model, matching its bold look and styling through the grille and hood design.

 The Mack MD Series will be supported through Geotab Go offering access to Mack OneCall™ agents, available 24/7 at the Mack Uptime Center based in Greensboro, North Carolina.

The Mack MD Series will be assembled at the Roanoke Valley Operations in Roanoke Valley, Virginia. Serial production begins in July.

Customers interested in the Mack MD Series can visit Mack booth No. 3523 at the Work Truck Show 2020 at the Indiana Convention Center, their local Mack dealer or www.macktrucks.com.
