Scania releases new 450 hp engine

Scania has announced that it has added a new 450 hp 13-litre engine to its range of Euro 6-certified truck engines.

“Our success with the 410 hp version of the 13-litre engine with only SCR has spurred us to go further down the road to reduce both complexity and diesel consumption,” said Joel Granath, Head of Product Management for Scania trucks. “Our customers now have a range of 18 different models of Euro 6 engines to choose from. This gives them unique opportunities to tailor their powertrains for optimal performance, regardless of driving conditions or application.”

In its latest configuration it uses only SCR after treatment technology, which according to Scania, could make it a popular choice for long-haulage fleets.

“Just as with the extremely fuel-stingy 410 hp model that appeared last autumn, this engine is ideal, especially for customers who prioritise low fuel consumption, but don’t want to give up torque or driver comfort,” stated Granath. “According to our own calculations running a Scania Streamline, this results in a one per cent fuel saving compared with the previous model using both EGR and SCR – everything else being equal.”

The new engine model maximum torque is 2,350 Nm and is available from 1000 r/min.
