Caterpillar Unveils New Engine Platform for Heavy Duty Off-Highway Applications at CONEXPO-CON/AGG 2023
At CONEXPO-CON/AGG, Caterpillar announced the development of the Cat® C13D, a new 13-l diesel engine platform, designed to achieve best-in-class power density, torque and fuel efficiency for optimizing the performance of heavy duty off-highway applications.
The I6 Cat C13D engine platform will offer 8 power ratings from 456 to 690 hp (340 to 515 kW) with up to 3,200 Nm of peak torque. Engine-mounted aftertreatment and cooling packs will also be available from the factory to reduce installation and validation costs. It offers up to a 20% increase in power and up to 25% more low-speed torque over the previous generation of Cat engines in its power class. The C13D will meet the emissions standards of higher regulated markets, with models available for lesser regulated markets.
By supplying comparable power and torque available from Caterpillar’s current 13-, 15- and single-turbo 18-l engine platforms, the Cat C13D platform provides an opportunity for original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) to downsize the engine and simplify design, assembly, and supply chain requirements across multiple applications. This consolidation can also reduce maintenance, parts, and technical training complexity for end users.
The new engine platform will be equipped with Cat® Digital Services, an integrated suite of robust software and hardware solutions supplying the insight equipment owners need to make decisions on the fly, secure the health of their equipment, and minimize nonproductive time.
Available for early OEM pilots in 2025 and scheduled for production in 2026, the Cat C13D engine is targeted for a wide range of off-highway equipment, including rock crushers, screeners, and grinders; trenchers; agriculture tractors, harvesters and self-propelled sprayers; woodchippers; material-handling equipment; and large industrial pumps.
