2010 Mack Superliner: The Introduction
Mack is one of the most storied truck manufacturers in the world, with more than a hundred years of extensive knowledge and success in the industry. But while there have been certainly a lot of good stories that come with the brand’s triumph in its field, Mack also had to face adversities from time to time, which include their much talked about restructuring plan 2008. The major change helped the brand reenergise their prime mover truck line and the whole business in general, which is why it remains among the key players in the market and which is why today’s review will be focused on one of the truck units that became a part of that revolution: the 2010 Mack Superliner 130T Prime Mover.
2010 Mack Superliner: Key Features
High quality performance
Mack is among the gold standard when engineering and manufacturing heavy-duty trucks that are both cost-efficient and powerful, and the introduction of the 2010 superliner only adds fuel to that great tradition showcasing a solid Cummins ISX engine to support its massive frame while also featuring a highly durable build build that’s almost perfectly made for Australia’s challenging terrain and working conditions.
Comfortable cabin setup
The Superliner 130T surprised us with a pretty spacious cabin that is also accompanied by an ergonomic setup that features great visibility, comfortable and adjustable seats, and well designed controls that are easily identifiable and accessible from the driver’s comfort zone. In addition, the control system offers great convenience because of its simplified style that’s relatively get accustomed to, essentially rounding up the good user experience that’s not present in other brand’s 2010 truck models.
Versatile and powerful
The Superliner has a GVM/GCM of up to 32 tonnes / up to 130 tonnes respectively. As I mentioned, it can be said that the truck’s very ideal to the country’s working conditions since it’s highly recommended and suited for heavy-haul, road train and other heavy-duty applications. In addition, there have been several customisation options that lets the operator adjust the machine’s makeup to fit their GCM’s specific demands.
Light and mobile
Mobility’s understandably limited for a lot of large commercial trucks, however that doesn’t mean that it cannot be improved. The Superliner 130T Prime Mover comes in lighter than what we expected, that’s literally and figuratively. The 2010 unit has been built with aluminium drive hubs, aluminium FUPS-standard bumper, and extensive use of lightweight materials in the bonnet and guards in order to minimise weight and improve balance and mobility. No wonder it’s one of the trucks that still stands out on trading websites such as Brown and Hurley among others.

2010 Mack Superliner: The Verdict
The 2010 Mack Superliner 130T Prime Mover maybe a bit outdated on paper, but performance certainly puts the machine on par with other prime movers in its class. The machine offers a pretty good interior makeup as well, providing comfort and convenience for the designated driver. Summing up, the Superliner remains and will continue to be one of the best heavy-duty trucks in the market, it’s good balance of power, versatility, and innovative design certainly make the machine an excellent choice for large scale operators and truckers.
