Freightliner builds 2007-certified engines
Jan 1, 2007 12:00 PM
Freightliner LLC has initiated the build of EPA 2007 emissions-certified heavy-duty Detroit Diesel Series 60 engines.
New Environmental Protection Agency regulations are designed to drive near-term improvements in truck emissions and air quality. Series 60 engines compliant with the new regulations emit 95 percent less particulate matter and 50 percent less nitrogen oxide than comparable engines in 2006.
Freightliner has made a significant investment in the innovation of this new technology in its Detroit Diesel engines, including validation with laboratory and field testing. Since the inception of the development program in 2004, Series 60 engines that are EPA' 07 compliant have accumulated more than 14 million equivalent miles, with 2.5 million of those miles in actual customer vehicles.
