Excellent torque at low revs. An extremely wide max torque range. And peak torque that overlaps peak power in the mid rev range. Compare our torque curves and you’ll see the difference. Climb in the cab and you’ll feel it – incredible acceleration, unrivalled pulling power and a fuel-efficient, pleasurable ride at speed.
Increased compression ratio on the 420 and 460 engines. New optimised turbo on the 500 and 540 engines. Common-rail injection for all engines and fine-tuned software to give the best engine control: plus, lowered internal friction. Everything in order to optimise fuel-efficiency, and give improved engine torque and response at low rpm. This makes a difference to your bottom line. And to the environment.
Our patented engine brake, VEB+, uses a unique camshaft design to absorb up to 375 kW (510 hp) on the D13 – and up to 425 kW (570 ph) on the D16. Coupled with our I-Shift transmission system and clever cruise control, you can maintain a higher average speed without compromising safety or fuel economy.
