D13TC – power/torque

Net output according to EC 582/2011
The D13TC is available with either 460 or 500 hp outputs. The torque levels however, are higher than in other D13 engines. The 460 hp D13TC reaches the same torque level as the D13 engine with 540 hp – but at lower revs. And the 500 hp I-Save moves into D16 territory with 2800 Nm at the same low revs.
This is enabled through Turbo Compound technology, which utilises an extra turbine after the turbocharger to reuse excess energy from the exhausts. This energy is converted to torque directly on the crankshaft – producing a powerful and extremely fuel-efficient engine.
