LAS VEGAS, NV – (Jan. 22, 2018) – For the first time, the Detroit DD8 engine will be showcased at the 2018 World of Concrete (Jan. 23 – 26, 2018, Las Vegas). The engine will be featured alongside Freightliner Trucks' breadth of options for the vocational market in booth #C5427.

“The DD8 engine combines the durability and efficiency expected from Detroit with the features best suited for vocational applications,” said Kelly Gedert, director of product marketing for Freightliner Trucks and Detroit Components. “As highlighted in in our World of Concrete booth, the DD8 is part of our overall strategy for having the right solution for any job.”

Ideal for the vocational truck market, the DD8 has a horsepower range of 260-350HP and a torque range of 660-1050 lb-ft. It features best-in-class maintenance intervals and is available with the engine and transmission power-take-off options needed for vocational applications.

The DD8 display at World of Concrete will also show Detroit’s variable cam-phasing technology for more efficient aftertreatment performance. The engine will also be displayed in the Freightliner 108SD set-back axle ProAll volumetric mixer truck.

Additional highlights include: 

· Two Freightliner trucks with custom interior options installed by SportChassis. The 114SD Beck rear discharge mixer and the 114SD concrete pump are spec’d with options such as an in-dash Kenwood Double DIN stereo and turn signal and reverse camera display screen, custom interior door panels, and interior LED step lights.  

· A 114SD Beck rear discharge mixer with an Allison 4700 Rugged Duty Series (RDS) transmission. The 4700 RDS is a newer option for the 114SD, and provides smooth, seamless full-power shifts and enhanced starting and acceleration.

All trucks featured in Freightliner’s booth at World of Concrete are spec’d with Detroit engines, which include the Detroit Connect Virtual Techniciansm remote diagnostic solution. Virtual Technician helps customers make informed service decisions within minutes of an engine or aftertreatment fault event.
