Productivity leads to profitability. Whether you’re on the road or at a job site, it’s important to operate vehicles that perform efficiently and reliably. That’s precisely why Detroit builds the versatile DD13 engine with BlueTec® emissions technology. Detroit engineers know what works. And what doesn’t. That’s why the DD13 follows the common base engine design of its successful big brother, the DD15® engine. This engine is everything you need and nothing you don’t. In a time when economy means everything, the DD13 makes perfect sense. The fuel-efficient design makes the most of every gallon with an Amplified Common Rail System (ACRS™) that optimizes each injection event to minimize fuel consumption. Available exclusively in Detroit engines, ACRS works in unison with our DDEC® electronic engine controls to deliver the exact amount of fuel you need at the right moment, creating an optimal combustion event. All that work fine-tuning combustion means lower emissions, less engine noise and vibration, and less wasted time stopping at the pump. Everything, right down to the advanced cooling system that decreases fan on-time, was designed to minimize fuel consumption.
An extremely wide and flat torque curve maintains the power to keep the driver’s foot off the clutch and hands on the wheel for less shifting and fatigue.
With the DD13, drivers also will get a wider sweet spot that makes it easier to cruise along in the fuel-saving range. So, whether you’re navigating traffic or maneuvering through a construction site, the DD13 delivers great fuel economy. A three-stage integrated Jacobs® engine brake gives you more stopping power and quieter engine braking than ever before. And, thanks to its exceptional braking power, the Jake Brake also extends the service brake life. TORQUE RESPONSE IS THE KEY TO PERFORMANCE. THIS ENGINE WILL HAUL, CLIMB, PULL, MIX and DUMP WHEN AND WHERE YOU NEED IT. The DD13 design is based on a sturdy rear gear train and ribbed cast iron block to minimize noise, vibration and harshness (NVH).
The robust design provides a B50 life of one million miles. And, the waste gated, asymmetrical turbocharger has fewer moving parts than a VGT design, which improves performance, and reliability. The turbocharger also applies constant back-pressure to efficiently enable the EGR system, all of which add up to a dependable engine that gets drivers where they need to go, and makes work seem a little less like work. The DD13 also offers rear-engine power take-off as an option for certain applications. And, if all that isn’t enough, DDEC provides a complete offering of engine and driver performance reports to help you maximize the advantages of the DD13.
