The 55-metric-ton-capacity truck also has new components and layouts for improved reliability and operator comfort, and easier maintenance. The truck is equipped with Caterpillar’s C27 ACERT engine with a gross power of 805, 19 percent more compared with the previous model. Similarly, torque is up 30 percent. The result is a 20 percent increase in speed when fully loaded and ascending a 14 percent grade.
