Peterbilt Motors Company announces the availability of the PACCAR MX engine with Model 389. “High industry acceptance and customer demand has allowed Peterbilt to expand the availability of the PACCAR MX engine into the Model 389,” says Bill Jackson, Peterbilt general manager and PACCAR vice president. “We are pleased to pair the MX engine with the Model 389 offering customers a superior fuel economy option that provides longer service intervals, increased uptime, lower operating costs and higher resale value.”
