Look at our curves

Excellent torque at low revs. An extremely wide max torque range. And peak torque meets peak power. 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.

Lowered emissions, still fuel efficient

Built-in fuel efficiency

The optimised combustion chamber geometry. The fast and precise EMS-controlled injection. The high gas-fill ratio. We could go on listing what makes our engines so fuel-efficient. What’s more important is the difference they make to you bottom line. And to the environment.
