New guide to diesel engines published

Fleet Owner resource covers every available U.S. truck engine

To help make the most cost effective decisions in the changing engine landscape, FLEET OWNER has put together a guide to every major diesel engine model now offered for sale in on-road U.S. commercial trucks.

Arranged alphabetically by manufacturer, the guide offers concise information on engine configuration, displacement, horsepower and torque ranges, and descriptions of engine features and intended applications. Web addresses for additional technical information are also included.

Indeed, over the past 14 years, federal emissions standards for trucks led to the introduction of Exhaust Gas Recirculation (EGR) in 2002, Diesel Particulate Filters (DPF) in 2007 and Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) in 2010. In 2014, the first fuel efficiency rules for trucks went into effect and a new set of even higher MPG standards will be required beginning in January 2017, and a second round of requirements are now being developed.

The reference, to be updated regularly, is online here.
