The Mack "Titan" is a heavy duty truck produced by Mack Trucks. There are two different "Titans", one in the Australian market, that was first introduced in 1995 as Mack's answer for the heavy road train operators of Australia, and a 2008 model introduced in North America. The "Titan" can haul loads up to 200 tonnes GCM and comes with many heavy duty options not found on highway trucks.

Australia

A raised cab and taller hood allows for larger radiators to better cool the engine in the hot Outback of Australia.

Heavy duty double and triple frame rails handle the high loads and stress of driving on unpaved dirt roads.

Rear axles offered include tri-drive options and planetary hub reduction axles from Renault Trucks.

Air brake system has high flow air compressor and large air tanks to provide air for 2 or more trailers and the air starter (if fitted).

Integrated vertical air intake snorkels keep dust and dirt out of the filters prolonging their life.

High power engines from Cummins (ISX & Signature) and Caterpillar (C-16) provide the necessary power. Up until 2000 or 2001 the Mack 16.4 liter E9 V8 was offered at 455 kW (610 hp) and 2780 nm (2050 ft·lbf) of torque.

The Mack 18 speed transmission is standard with an Eaton 18 speed option. Eaton two and four speed auxiliary transmissions are also available to provide extra gears and an optional Power Tower.
