John Deere Power Systems Introduces New Engine Architecture, Telematics Solution


As the off-highway industry works toward a more sustainable future, John Deere Power Systems (JDPS) is focused on developing solutions in 4 key areas of power generation: renewable fuels, battery electric, hybrid electric, and advancements to internal combustion engines (ICE). This diversified approach to power solutions will support customers in future-proofing their equipment operations while making their businesses more competitive and dynamic.

As the company continues to invest in and develop technologies to innovate, deliver value to customers, and work toward a future with low- and zero-emissions propulsion systems, JDPS has expanded its powertrain offerings to include a new engine architecture and developed a telematics solution for original equipment manufacturers (OEMs).

Leveraging the best technologies of John Deere in new ways to meet both market and customer demands, JDPS is delivering new levels of reliability, durability, flexibility, and serviceability with its Next Generation Engine (NGE) lineup. When developing the engine platform, JDPS consulted leading equipment manufacturers to learn more about which engine improvements were at the top of their wish lists.

The result is an engine architecture that simplifies the integration of renewable fuels with internal combustion engines and offers an expanded power range. OEMs can now put John Deere power and performance into their entire equipment line, from 36 to 677 kW (48 to 908 hp). The JD4, JD14, and JD18 are the first engines JDPS has developed with this new architecture.

The JD4 is the latest addition to the NGE lineup, making its global debut at CONEXPO-CON/AGG 2023, last March in Las Vegas. The JD4 offers improved engine reliability and uptime, emissions compatibility, and enhanced auxiliary power. Providing up to 120 kW (161 hp) of power, this compact but mighty engine features a rear gear train that provides customers with low noise and high PTO power. The engine also has an extended single turbo range and provides 700 Nm (516 lb ft) of maximum torque for exceptional high-load capacity and productivity.

The JD4 offers up to 3 auxiliary drives, providing 3 times more available auxiliary power. This additional power allows flexibility and enables off-boarding for electrification and hybrid applications. The JD4 will be compatible with EU Stage IIIA – Stage V emissions levels through common interfaces. The engine is low-NOx-ready with planned external cooled exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) and a single overhead cam shaft valve train. The JD4 engine is also compliant with Tier 4 final and Stage V emissions levels with no EGR.
