Detroit DD15®

Power the Evolution

Our engineers re-examined, then re-designed many features of the DD15 to reach this level of performance, including:

  • Proprietary Asymmetric Turbocharger to reduce weight and complexity, and deliver improved performance over other turbo designs. It is also more optimally matched to the Exhaust Gas Recirculation (EGR) system to deliver outstanding performance.
  • Next generation ACRS Fuel System optimizes DPF regenerations through improved combustion control to extend regeneration intervals.
  • Fuel Filter Module uses a two-filter system for longer service life, increasing the service change interval up to 100,000 miles. Serviceability has improved, with easier access to the water drain and fewer priming strokes.
  • Optimized Piston Design introduces a carbon scraper ring, reduces oil consumption, and contributes to improved fuel economy.
  • Variable Speed Water Pump utilizes a viscous clutch between the pulley and impeller drive to reduce impeller speeds, making it more efficient than a gear-driven design.
  • Optimized Oil Pump contributes to greater fuel economy.
  • Weight Savings of 100-pounds compared to EPA 10.
  • Meets 2013 OBD (OBD13) and 2014 Greenhouse Gas (GHG14) regulations.

Detroit DD16®

Haul the Heavy Loads

The Detroit DD16 truck engine with BlueTec® SCR emissions technology is the biggest, toughest, most powerful engine Detroit has ever produced. With a wide, flat torque curve, and delivering 2050 lb/ft and 600 HP, it tackles your hardest jobs while performing with the fuel efficiency and reliability you’ve come to count on from Detroit. Stay productive and profitable with:

  • 15.6L displacement — the largest on-highway engine built by Detroit
  • Turbo compounding to recover heat from exhaust, transforming lost potential into bonus power
  • Amplified Common Rail System (ACRS) that lowers emissions, noise, vibrations and fuel consumption
  • Integrated BlueTec SCR emissions technology to improve engine performance while meeting current emissions requirements
  • Integrated Jacobs® brake that offers three levels of quieter engine braking for enhanced downhill control and shorter stopping distances, all with reduced wear on the service brakes, tires and other components
  • Meets 2013 OBD (OBD13) and 2014 Greenhouse Gas (GHG14) regulations.
