Last week, Detroit announced a massive milestone in their heavy-duty engine production (HDEP) as they produced their one-millionth engine at their manufacturing facility located in Redford, Michigan.
“Detroit has been building world-class, state-of-the-art engines with industry-leading technology for over 84 years,” said Matt Pfaffenbach, Head of Operations at Detroit. “The campus is home to 2,900 employees. Our work is built on a foundation of pride, hard work and innovation. We are extremely proud of this achievement and the advancements we bring to the industry.”
Detroit’s HDEP product family includes the DD13, DD15, and DD16 engines, which are all produced in-house.
Detroit provides engines for both on-highway and vocational commercial consumers and is actually the only manufacturer to offer a 16-liter engine in the industry.
The company does all this while maintaining a standard to improve engine fuel economy by 5% every 2-3 years.
