Simple Design

The simplest turbocharger design is one whose turbine geometry are fixed. With fewer moving parts there is less chance for mechanical failure. Which is why the D13TC simple design makes it the most reliable engine we've ever built.

Last Longer

The D13TC delivers extra horsepower while operating at lower RPM, so there’s less strain on the engine. The fixed geometry turbo is designed to meet the 1.2 million mile B50 life of the engine, with no extra maintenance required.

Shifting Forward

By combining the next generation of I-Shift with the D13TC, you get application-specific solutions that exceed expectations for fuel efficiency, performance and driver productivity.

AVAILABILITY

COMPATIBLE WITH THE D13TC

A truly unique engine for a truly unique truck. Available only for VNL, the D13TC brings even better fuel economy savings and more power.

High-Efficiency Aftertreatment

"One-box" aftertreatment system offers smaller packaging and reduces weight by 17 pounds from previous systems. Provides better thermal encasing of exhaust energy, improves muffler efficiency.
