THE PETERBILT STORE AWARDED PACCAR MX ENGINE DEALER OF THE YEAR
DENTON, Texas (February 4, 2016)
The Peterbilt Store – which operates 14 Peterbilt dealerships in six states – was named the 2015 PACCAR MX Engine Dealer of the Year by Peterbilt Motors Company.
“The Peterbilt Store has proven its commitment to PACCAR MX power through exceptional sales and support,” said Darrin Siver, Peterbilt General Manager and PACCAR Vice President. “More than 70 percent of all heavy-duty trucks sold by The Peterbilt Store were equipped with PACCAR MX engines and they have nearly 50 PACAR MX certified service technicians. They continue to excel in providing customers with PACCAR MX engine solutions that provide leading fuel efficiency, reliability and performance.”
Peterbilt presented the award to The Peterbilt Store President and CEO John Arscott and Dealer Principals Greg and Jeff Arscott during its annual Dealer Meeting in San Diego. The two-day business meeting included presentations and breakout sessions, including focused overviews of the new PACCAR MX-11 engine and SmartLINQ connected truck technology.
“We are pleased to receive the PACCAR MX Engine Dealer of the Year award and be recognized for our sale and support of these highly efficient and reliable engines,” said John Arscott. “PACCAR MX engines have provided our customers with new levels of fuel economy while reducing their operating costs. We look forward to supporting the new PACCAR MX-11 engine with the same commitment as we have the PACCAR MX-13 engine.”
The PACCAR MX-11 engine went into full production in January for Peterbilt’s flagship on-highway Model 579 and vocational Model 567. The new 10.8-liter engine has an output of up to 430 horsepower and 1,550 lb.-ft. of torque. It is ideal for a wide range of applications, including regional haul, tanker, bulk haul, construction and refuse.
