Issaquah’s Costco Wholesale Corp. today accepted delivery of the first 2011 Kenworth truck powered by a new fuel-efficient engine built by Bellevue’s PACCAR Inc.

The engine is among the first built in PACCAR’s new Columbus, Miss., engine plant.

PACCAR is parent company to Kenworth and Peterbilt truck companies in the U.S. and to DAF trucks in Europe.

The wholesale warehouse club already operates 150 Kenworth T660 trucks in its distribution fleet. The truck delivered today, however, is the first powered by the new PACCAR MX engine.

Costco operates 567 warehouse stores in the U.S., Canada and several other countries around the world.

The new diesel engine meets new emissions regulations while cutting fuel usage.
