Demand More

The Detroit Diesel DD16 drives like the heavy-duty diesel engine you always wanted: 600 horsepower to muscle up the hills and 2050lb-ft of torque to move the heaviest loads.

The DD16 is made for extreme loads. Whether you’re in the coal mines of West Virginia or the forests of Western Canada, this engine has the power and torque to deliver. The DD16 is the powerhouse engine for the owner operator and severe-duty vocational markets.

Demand Power

Its 16 liter displacement gives the DD16 the ability to produce 600 horsepower. Pulling huge loads up the hills is what the DD16 was born to do. And with its amazing torque curve that pulls down to 1000 RPM, it lets you hang in the top gear longer. It’s a great addition to the Detroit Diesel line of powerful engines.

Demand Performance

The DD16 will launch you right off the line. Our exclusive amplified common rail fuel system (ACRS™) and simple turbocharger combined deliver instant acceleration like no other engine. So if Sunday driving isn’t your thing, then you’ll love the DD16’s attitude when the light turns green.Video of SCR technology - explained
