Top 100: New Engines Easy on OEMs

September 28, 2010

1100D-SeriesThe 1100D-Series from Perkins is a range of three-, four- and six-cylinder diesel engines, Tier-3/Stage IIIA-compliant, with horsepower ratings from 56 to 275. Available with either advanced mechanical or electronic fuel systems, and with natural, turbocharged or turbocharged/after-cooled aspiration, the D-Series features a common platform of 1.1-liter displacement per cylinder. For the vehicle manufacturer, says Perkins, the D-Series design allows these engines to be easily accommodated in applications formerly using the C-Series, and in addition, provides more build options, power and torque increase and reduced sound. Estimated list prices: $5,000 to $13,500.
