Mack Trucks recently began initial production of its all-new Mack MD Series of medium-duty trucks at its Roanoke Valley Operations (RVO) facility in the Roanoke Valley, Virginia. Full production of the Mack MD Series is scheduled to begin Sept. 1.

The Mack MD7 is a Class 7 model with a 33,000-pound GVWR. Mack announced in January it had invested $13 million to establish RVO to produce the Mack MD7 and the Mack MD6, a Class 6 model, with a GVWR of 25,995 pounds. Both models are exempt from the 12% Federal Excise Tax (FET).

The new trucks will meet the needs of trucking applications requiring dry van/refrigerated, stake/flatbed, dump, and tank truck vocations, according to the manufacturer. Available in 4×2 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. Additionally, 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.
