Detroit diesel DD16 Engine

When your rig needs big.  The Detroit DD16 Engine delivers strength and efficiency on the road or on the job site.

Detroit offers a big-bore workhorse with up to 600 horsepower and 2050 lb-ft of torque, delivering more efficient and dependable power and performance. Beyond performance, Detroit engineers have been able to meet GHG17 requirements while improving fuel economy.


  • 15.6 L displacement is the largest engine built by Detroit
  • 600 HP/2050 lb-ft rating available to pull
    the most extreme loads
  • Wide, flat torque curve pulls strong all the way down below 1000 RPM


  • Above the frame rail, cartridge-style filters for easier, faster, and cleaner filter changes
  • Unmatched parts availability and expert service at Detroit’s best-performing service network


  • The 2nd generation ACRS™ fuel system, with higher injector pressure, improves performance and fuel economy
    • Precise fuel delivery for extremely quiet, smooth combustion and to meet stringent emissions-control requirements
    • Variable injection patterns for optimal fuel economy across all modes of engine operation
    • Final high-pressure amplification is isolated in the injector, not in the rail or fuel lines, which results in less stress on component
  • Exceptional torque response leads to superior launch feel and acceleration
  • Outstanding gradeability
    • Flattens steep grades and mountain roads with greater speeds and pulling power
  • Turbo-compounding system recovers normally wasted exhaust gases and turns them into usable power withouT sacrificing fuel economy
  • Integrated Jacobs® Engine Brake
    • Offers three levels of quieter engine braking for enhanced downhill control
    • Reduces wear on service brakes, tires, and other component
