Deutz Corp. used its time at ConExpo-Con/Agg to somewhat quietly announce that it will be adding a new 18 L diesel to its product range. The new six-cylinder diesel will have an output of 758 to 830 hp (565-620 kW) at 1900 rpm and a maximum torque of 2655 lb. ft. (3600 Nm). That output puts the engine outside the regulated emissions range in most global markets. At 758 to 830 hp, the 18.0 L will only have SCR as exhaust aftertreatment.
The new diesel, part of the pending alliance with Liebherr, will become the largest output engine in the Deutz range fitting in above the newly introduced 13.5 L model at 402 to 603 hp (300-450 kW). The 13.5 L, along with the new 12.0 L and 9.0 L models are also part of the Liebherr alliance.
Deutz said the 18 L is compliant to EU Stage 3A+V, U.S. Tier 4 and China 4. More details of the engine will be available nearer the target launch date of 2020.
