The Most Advanced Engine Solutions

Since 1938, Detroit has had a rich history of producing diesel engines that are proven performers. Today, Detroit is a subsidiary of Daimler — designing, manufacturing, selling and servicing a complete line of medium and heavy-duty diesel and alternative fuel engines for the transportation industry including development of hybrid engine technology. With more than 800 authorized service outlets worldwide, Detroit is a global leader in the heavyduty diesel engine industry.

In 1987 Detroit pioneered the world’s first fully electronic diesel engine. The Series 60 engine family not only produced and exceeded customer power and torque requirements but it rewrote the industry standard on reliability and superior fuel economy. Over 1,000,000 Series 60 engines have been produced and can be found in literally any heavyduty chassis including over the road coach, construction and industrial equipment and custom fire apparatus. Today, the Detroit legacy of quality products continues.

Detroit Diesel Series 60 Engine

The most successful Detroit Diesel engine ever produced, the Series 60 was also the first engine in the world to fully utilize electronic engine controls. With more than 1.2 million units sold since 1987, the Series 60 was the most widely used heavy-duty truck engine in North America by 1992. It has been used extensively in trucks, boats, power generators, fire and emergency vehicles and mining equipment.

Detroit Diesel 53 Series Engine

The Detroit 53 series two cycle diesel was introduced in 1957. Although the engine used a roots type blower like its larger 71 series counterpart, it’s classified as a naturally aspirated engine. Rather than being used strictly for performance reasons, the blower’s purpose was to facilitate scavenging in the cylinder during the exhaust stroke. “53” refers to the fact that, regardless of total engine displacement, each cylinder displaces 53 cubic inches.

Detroit Diesel Series 71 Engine

The Detroit 71 series two stroke diesel engine family was first introduced in 1938. A V-block design of the same engine was later introduced in the late 50’s. “71” designates that each cylinder, regardless of configuration or the total number of cylinders, displaces 71 cubic inches. As all designs use a 4.25 inch bore and 5.00 inch stroke, parts are widely interchangeable between the engines. The 6V-71 and 8V-71 are amongst the most popular engines in the 71 series family as they were used extensively in on-highway applications.

Detroit Diesel Series 92 Engine

The Series 92 engines were introduced in 1974. Compared to the Series 71 engines they were derived from, the Series 92 featured a larger and an identical stroke of 5 inches for a nominal displacement per cylinder of 92 cubic inches, from which the Series 92 derives its name.
