The Mack Granite CNG model is said to feature a 320-horsepower Cummins L9N engine.
Mack Trucks announced the availability of a Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) powered Mack Granite model at the recent 2023 WasteExpo held in New Orleans, Louisiana.
Developed for waste customers that want an alternative-fuel solution or that generate their own fuel, the Mack Granite CNG model features a 320 HP Cummins L9N engine matched with an Allison 4500 fully automatic six-speed transmission.
The company notes that the CNG Mack Granite truck is only available as an axle-back model and features the new, more modern fascia with an updated chrome grille and self-heating LED headlamps that offer brighter illumination, designed to improve forward visibility by up to 29% and peripheral visibility by up to 50%. The new grille and air intakes modernize the look of the Granite, and the choice of two grille treatments offers customers another way to customize their vehicles.
Self-heating LED headlights round out the updates and add to the suite of safety features already on previous Mack Granite models. According to Mack, the integrated heating elements automatically sense the ambient temperature and turn on to keep ice and snow from building up in colder environments and an anti-fog coating prevents condensation in warmer, humid environments to improve visibility.
