ADVANCED AERODYNAMICS

Anthem challenges the expectations of aerodynamic design with a bold look that displaces air to the sides, as well as over the hood and roof, to cut wind resistance and improve fuel economy by up to 3%.From the hood slope and fairings to the mirrors and air dam, every component is engineered to maximize efficiency.

UNPARALLELED DURABILITY

Anthem helps drive down maintenance costs with durability and long-lasting components. LED headlights are 66%brighter and last longer. Breakaway hood mirrors and side mirrors have hinges with zero plastic and spring-loaded mounts that rotate when hit, preventing damage to the hood.

SMART SERVICEABILITY

Anthem’s functional and modular design gives service professionals easy access to repair and replaces components. The single-point hood latch and tilt-assist requires 50% less effort to open, while the 3-piece hood and 3-piece bumper can be separated and repaired in pieces for lower replacement costs.

The frame system includes a full channel liner in each rail that runs front to rear within the Mack Defense M917A3 Heavy Dump Truck. This provides for optimal strength and payload capabilities.

CROSSMEMBERS

Developed by Mack design engineers and harshly tested by perfomance engineers – superior strength and stiffness is achieve through the use of eight crossmembers located along the frame rails where loads are imposed
