The latest in diesel engines

Almost all of the major diesel engine makers are either rolling out new platforms or making changes to current products across a range of displacements for this year as well as for 2018.  Makeovers include weight reductions and combustion system redesigns, among other improvements, largely to help them meet federal greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions targets. Those targets are ostensibly about reducing carbon dioxide emissions, yet in terms of real-world impact, they translate into mandates for lower fuel consumption.
