The engine will first be offered in 210 HP with 575-lb./ft. torque and 230 HP with 660-lb./ft. torque ratings, and will come with the Detroit Connect Virtual Technician remote diagnostics system.

Features of the DD5, according to Detroit, include its extended oil and fuel filter change intervals up to 45,000 miles, an expected B10 life of 400,000 miles, and variable cam phasing, which provides Detroit the ability to optimize thermal management under low engine load conditions and improve the overall performance of the aftertreatment system, the company said.
