Testing the GT 601 Gas Turbine Truck 790771

The GT601 Gas Turbine Engine has been specifically designed as a powerplant for heavy duty trucks. Development testing of this engine installed in an R-795S Model Mack chassis is presently in process. One of the major objectives of this program is the integration of the engine and the vehicle as a system, taking advantage of the unique characteristics of the turbine to optimize overall vehicle cost and performance without adversely affecting driveability by personnel trained to operate conventional diesel-powered trucks.
