Detroit unveils 2013 engine enhancements

Expanded engine line-up feature more fuel saving components.

Enhanced Efficiency: Detroit DD13, DD15 TC and DD16

Ideal for regional, LTL and vocational applications, the updated Detroit DD13 engine features longer service intervals and improvements such as fuel injector nozzle modifications and a new crankcase sensor for OBD requirements. A variable speed water pump creates greater efficiency compared to a gear-driven design. With ratings from 370-470 hp and a torque range from 1250-1650 lbs, the enhanced DD13 offers the power ratings customers demand.

Detroit will continue to offer the DD15 TC (with turbo compounding) which will receive many of the engine family changes including the new DDEC electronic controls and improved fuel filter system. The DD15 TC will be available in many of the Freightliner and Western Star trucks and will continue deliver the reliability and performance customers have demanded since its introduction in 2008.

Rounding out the Detroit engine family, the enhanced Detroit DD16 now has a wider selection of available horsepower and torque ratings that have been shifted from the DD15 engine. With up to 600hp delivering up to 2050 lbs of torque, the DD16 was designed to haul the heaviest of loads through the most difficult terrains.

"Detroit has the best performing engines for any application," said Williamson. "Our customers expect power, performance and durability and with our engines engineered for GHG14 compliance, we deliver every time."
