KAG is proud to operate the 100,000th

PACCAR MX-13 engine produced

for North America. The landmark

engine was presented to KAG by

truck manufacturer PACCAR and

will soon be running in a Peterbilt

Model 579. KAG received a plaque

to commemorate the event.

“We’re pleased to celebrate this major

event with Peterbilt,” says KAG President

Bruce Blaise. “The Peterbilt Model 579s

with MX-13 engines in our fleet have

been reliable, fuel-efficient performers.”

The engine was presented to Bruce

Blaise and Bruce Stockton, Vice

President of Fleet Services, during an

event at the state-of-the-art PACCAR

engine plant in Columbus, Miss., where

the MX-13 is manufactured for North

American markets.
