Introducing New Inline Engine Platform

With great power density, a significantly increased lifespan and major CO2-emission improvement, Scania’s next generation inline engine platform sets a new standard for fuel efficiency in power solutions.  

After a decade of innovation and engineering, Scania’s new engine platform is ready. “This is our most fuel-efficient engine ever, with more torque, more power and up to 50 percent longer base engine lifespan. A game-changer for power solutions,” says Jorg Franzke, President, Scania USA. The enhanced gas exchange system, reduced internal friction, and increased turbocharger efficiency all have a positive impact on the fuel-efficiency. For the 13-liter engine, this means up to seven percent improvement in fuel consumption compared to the current generation at the same power output. That translates to four liters (~1 gallon) of diesel saved per engine hour at full load. 


As long as combustion engines are still in use, their climate impact should be improved. This new platform carries the performance and reliability that customers are used to from Scania, but with added CO2-emission reductions. It also meets the demands for changes in legislation, and is compatible with biodiesel blends and HVO. 


The new engine platform is built using cutting-edge technology, and to add value to the customers’ operations has been top of mind. For example, the time between overhauls is up to 25,000 hours. Some of the new design features include more precise cooling, and a more rigid engine block and cylinder head.  


“Our mindset throughout the development of the new platform has been to ease the transition for our customers while positively impacting fuel efficiency and product performance,” says Henrik Nilsson, Scania’s Director Product Management, Power Solutions. 

The 13-liter engine has a power range from 368 kW to 450 kW and delivers up to 11 percent more power and 21 percent more torque than the current generation. Available in both low-emission and unregulated models, with a range of certifications including US Tier 4F, EU Stage V and China Stage IV. 



The 11-liter engine has a power range from 202 kW to 368 kW. Available in both low-emission and unregulated emission models, with a range of certifications including US Tier 4F, EU Stage V, Korean Tier 5 and China Stage IV.
