To extend its leading position in the field of fuel efficiency and low operating costs even further, DAF has introduced a significant number of innovations to the successful 12.9 litre PACCAR MX engine. New pistons, optimised fuel injection and a unique, fully encapsulated exhaust manifold unit ensure substantially lower fuel consumption and therefore lower CO2-emissions.
The 12.9-litre PACCAR MX engine delivers excellent performance: from 410 hp up to 510 hp and high torque of between 2,000 and 2,500 Nm, with a maximum torque available between 1,000 and 1,410 rpm. Also, with DAF SCR Technology it complies with Euro 5 and EEV (Enhanced Environmentally-friendly Vehicles) exhaust gas emission standards. It is economical too, incorporating several technical advances that reduce fuel consumption. The XF105 also uses many low-maintenance components, which extends service intervals to further reduce operating costs.
High performance driveline
The driveline is carefully balanced to optimise performance under all operating conditions, and to make the most of the engine’s low fuel consumption. There is a choice of either a 16-speed manual or the latest AS-Tronic automated transmission to deliver power to the acclaimed DAF hypoid rear axle. There is also a hub-reduction axle for more demanding applications.
A fuel-efficient engine alone does not guarantee low fuel consumption; the gearbox and rear axle are also vitally important. That is why DAF pays great attention to integrated and optimal driveline technology. A new Intarder, plus faster rear axle ratios give the best combination of performance, efficiency and low weight.
