The diesel engine's torque curve

Look at our curves

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. 

Built-in fuel efficiency

Built-in fuel efficiency

The vertical, centrally positioned unit injectors. 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 your bottom line. And to the environment.
