Advancement in engine and driveline technology shows no sign of abating in the quest for commercial vehicles to make good power, transfer it to well and do it as efficiently to save as much money on fuel and repairs as possible. We check out some of the k
The humble commercial diesel engine has withstood the test of time for so long and doesn’t look like bailing out in a hurry. With stringent Euro 6 emissions the par, they’re now cleaner than the proverbial.
WHILE THE BUZZ terms in the bus and truck world is electric this and electric that at present – and justifiably so given the massive amounts of money and research major manufacturers are putting into new avenues of motive power – the venerable diesel engine and its ubiquitous use worldwide show no signs of ending in a hurry, with some of the Euro 6 and even Euro 5 engines dramatically slashing emissions and pollutants on levels the industry hasn’t seen in decades – nor probably expected it would need to. And then there’s hybrid diesels.
A range of technological wizardry and a raft of innovations have seen diesel engines pump out greater power and torque with increased ease and usability throughout the years, and this ingenuity has been mirrored by transmissions specialists as that energy makes it way down the driveline via axles to the driven wheels.
The manufacturers here are just some of the leading experts in the game, and have built reputations on sound performance and creative evolution. Let’s take a look…
